    Default Shut the government down. Keep it shut down!!!!!

    That's right!!! Shut the government down and keep it shut down!!!!!!

    The Dirty Little Secret Is.....

    Life will not end if the government shuts down!!!!
    The sooner people realize that the sun will still come up in the morning even if the federal government is shut down the better off we will all be. Keep it shut down for 6 months.....a year or more if that's what it takes. The longer the better. Perhaps then people will realize that life will go on as normal without the government. The thought of the people figuring this out will scare the bejeebers out of liberals.

    Remember how the libs said sequestration would be a disaster? They love scare tactics founded on lies.
    That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

    I coined a phrase on another forum back during the sequester battle. I counted the days after "Sequestration Annihilation". Well you know what????? We are now a couple hundred days into Sequestration Annihilation and the world still has not ended. The sun will still come up every morning even if the government is shut down.

    We can look to 1996 to see what happened then.

    Here is another synopsis: http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/23/politi...html?hpt=hp_t2

    Military personnel must stay on duty but will be paid with IOU's. Kind of hard to use those at the PX, especially considering they already don't get paid very much so probably don't have a lot of savings to carry them through.

    The costs planning for one and then implementing a shutdown, and then restarting later is itself stunningly expensive. The one in 1996 cost $1.4 billion in 1996 dollars. That would be equivalent to $2.1 billion today.

    All those federal employees now join the unemployed. You're gonna love that one. What do you think that does to SNAP, medicaid, and so on? Much more expensive...all those taxpayers with their own health insurance now are on welfare and Medicaid. But let's say it is short-lived...in 1996, the gubberment retroactively paid all those employees for their newly found vacation time, courtesy of the taxpayers.

    Oh, by the way, did you know the provisions of Obamacare are exempt? That's right, boys and girls. It will keep marching on. Funding for it is independent of the budget process.

    Of course, the benefit is that it will just add fuel to the fire for dumping Republicans next year. Say hello to Democratic control of the House, Senate, and Presidency!

    One more thing: You will still have to keep paying your taxes!

    Might be a solution to this insanity, if they can't spend it and we still have to pay the taxes its simple math...two or three years and we'll have the books balanced and be rid of the moron that helped get us in this mess.

    Ask not what burdens you can seek to shift to the broader shoulders of other men. Instead, ask how many businesses you yourself have started this year, how many jobs you yourself have created this year, and how many millions you yourself have paid in taxes this year. If Obama supporters followed this simple rule, we would be much better off.

    The problem is no one in office, either party, cares about this country. All they care about are the special interest groups that bought them their seats in government, along with their life time benefits and gigantic pensions.
    We need a third party and an end to the Electoral College.
    WHICH ONE IS THE BIGGER FRAUD???
