But, Isn't this what Tea-Party Republicans think people will do
24/7/365/infinity?This shutdown is a Tea-Party dream come true!A Government cutdown and shutdown to only the bare essentials.
The unfortunate truth about political war is that it is only the little people
who get hurt. Another truth about political war is that it is
simply the competition between the various business factions for control over
the consumer. Further truth about political war is that it creates
a greater supply of victims for the parasites of society to feed upon.
Nice sentiments, but pretty unrealistic. All the charity we ordinary people can
drum up is a drop in the barrel next to the needs of those kept afloat by
government (because the free-market economy doesn't care about them). Part
of the reason charity falls so far short is that the wealthy give so little back
while taking so much from the system. Talk about makers and takers. The biggest

Judging from the small number of posts, would I be correct in assuming that most
readers actually agree with it?Gee, wouldn't it be nice if
everyone had as much wisdom and the writer of this letter.
Yes it is a Tea Party dream come true, but in a way it's mine too. How?
Clear out all the clutter and there is much too much. Why is anyone still in
their jobs (including the President who refused to compromise). I say fire them
all, isn't it we tax payers paying their salaries? Look at the original
Constitution, how many did it take to write it and defend it?
The writer is opposing a mind set bent on destruction of our country by the
bitter tea party making a last stand. But the economy they want to trash so gold
