Back in 1995 when I was just starting into my political journey, I remember feeling proud of the Republican Party for allowing the Almighty Federal Government to shutdown. This was when the Republican Party was Conservative, and yes a bit Anti-Federal Government (I don’t have ADD). I can remember all these whiny politico’s on CnnCCP, and ABC’s Nightline complaining about this and that, and how this is bad for everyone. Nothing bad about it in my eyes. In fact, I was hoping it would last longer than it did.
Now comes news from The Hill, that this may once again happen.
The prospect of a September government shutdown loomed over the Capitol on Wednesday as the two parties fought over rising energy prices. It’s a fight some members of either party are willing to have, but others worry about who will get blamed for a repeat of the 1995 shutdown that President Clinton pinned on a Republican Congress.
Back in 1995 it was over the Budget, now it’s for “Rising Energy Prices”. Which infact is the fault of the Almighty Federal Government, as well as the Federal Reserve. Let’s not get facts in the way. You moron’s in Congress need to read some Economic books, and to Re-read the Constitution.
Back to the article…
Republicans would likely have to make the first move by filibustering a bill, or by President Bush vetoing a spending bill. Rep. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) said he doesn’t think the GOP would go through with it. “I believe the Republican Party would be risking even more wrath of the American people than they’ve gotten so far,”said Van Hollen, who’s in charge of electing more Democratic House members this fall. “I think the people on the Republican side will pull back.”
Wouldn’t feel my wrath Congressman. It would make me want to vote for them again. And, I may even decide to donate money to them, if this were to happen. But, the majority of the American people have been doped to believe, that if the Federal Government isn’t working, the country will go to hell in a hand basket.
And that’s the problem. Folks, honesty besides the Defense of America (not our interests, or alleys) what does the Federal Government do to help your daily life? Not much. Well unless you are a parasite that sucks the money from my paycheck. Federal Welfare recipients, Government Contractors, Military Contractors, Federalizing Law Enforcement, just to name a few in the long list Welfare/Warfare collaborators.
So, will the Republican Party renew my faith in them, when they say “Limited Government”? Or will they blink and return to being the Socialists they’ve become.
