We are 32 hours away from a government shutdown, and the Republicans responsible for it are already telling us to not blame them if it happens because they are too cowardly to say what is on their minds. 'Do it our way and give us what we want, or we will hurt you.'
For all you chanting "Shut it Down" I just have to ask - do you have any idea at all what this really is or are you still just blindly following your Kool Aid Making Leaders? I'm sure you have friends in the military. Are you really asking them to go without paychecks while they put their lives on the line for you? I'm sure you know someone elderly or disabled. Are you really asking them to Go Without because Eric Cantor doesn't want to ask rich people and corporations to pay their share of taxes? Are you really willing to go without your own tax refund because you think victims of rape shouldn't be allowed to have an abortion?
This isn't about balancing a budget. At. All. This is about Power. Power over You. It's about Republicans making sure that the richest 1% of this country gets out of having to pay taxes and keeping them happy enough to keep their votes because if they really wanted to balance this country's budget, they'd finally tax these tax evading pricks. This is about Republicans trying to make sure that when you visit your doctor, they will have a seat right next to you on that little bed covered in crinkly white paper regardless of what you and your doctor think is best. Less government my Little White Ass.
This is about Republicans taking away our rights. It's about Republicans using our tax dollars the way They want and not the way they should. And it's about Republicans keeping us as scared as possible of each other knowing the dumb and naive will gladly support them all the way to the Poverty. What they don't see is that their fate is tied up with Us and Our quality of life. But they will see it. When history repeats.
Just remember, this government shutdown will actually cost the taxpayers more money and you know who still gets paid for Not Showing Up to Work? I'll give you a clue - it's not the Public Sector in Wisconsin...
