I’m all for the shutdown. Yes, it messes things up. My next two weeks just got a whole lot busier. But the shutdown fights are the only tool to get an increasingly treacherous foreign-owned Democrat party on the record. They will fund nothing if they do not get their DACA money for illegals. And it’s not the money that hurts, but the principal. If we cannot undo the divisive Alinskyite progressive executive orders from the Obama administration under a Trump administration, with both houses in support (“support”), then why do we bother? So money for illegals it is then! Fine — shut it down.
McConnell should have been up there hellfire and brimstone on the fact that the United States Government has no mandate to provide for illegal invaders in our midst, and in fact has no Constitutional authority to do so. But there goes Mitch McConnell, bemoaning the loss of the horribly flawed SCHIP program, itself an illegal immigrant wealth transfer, instead of making the case for a good sound shutdown to demonstrate for whom the Republicans say the government is established.
There are serious issues in play here, and the GOP still cannot see their way to fighting on issues. Thank God for Trump. A McConnell/Ryan Republican party would have little to show in the way of differences between themselves and the Democrats.
Enjoy the shutdown, provided Weasel Graham doesn’t “fix” this damned ting by promising to lose later. I know I will. It will be the talk of the office. I look forward to it.
