America is entering week 2 of a “crisis called a government shutdown where around 83% of the federal workforce is still working and the remaining 17% have been classed as non-essential personnel and told not to report to work. But have you missed them? Has the government shutdown affected your life in any meaningful way?
I have yet to hear a story where the shutdown has negatively affected an individual or family.
However I believe the America people are seeing through the lack of these services and with the emergence of actual Conservative leaders like Ted Cruz, Mike Lee and Rand Paul, the GOP have for the most part held strong and used the correct strategy in passing bills to fund parts of the government there is no dispute over such as the NIH and the VA which is putting great pressure on the democrats.
However the Democrat party in DC today is not the same as the old traditional Democratic party.
This is a new party with a very different message – this is a party for the progressives, a party where they will do or say anything to get their way and will sacrifice anyone for what they consider the greater good and a party that believes they are the true God and decider of everything.
