If we really want to save the Republic, let’s forget all this talk about shutting down the government.
Shut down Congress instead.
Send the House and Senate home. Close the Capitol. Turn out the lights. Congress is just a collection dim bulbs anyway.
Congress is an archaic institution, populated by scam artists, con men (and women) and political ideologues who have no idea how to serve the best interests of the nation. Most of them couldn’t run a lemonade stand in the front yards of their home, much less a government.
For all practical purposes, government ceased to function years ago, led by the gridlock posturing in the House and Senate. Neither party has leaders worthy of their titles. Neither party has the high road. Both sides are bottom feeders.
The nation would be better off if they just locked the doors and hung a “this property condemned” sign on the entrance to the Capitol.
Yeah, yeah, I know.
We can’t do that.
But we can dream.
