Do you support the Partial Government Shutdown?

Do you support the Partial Government Shutdown?

President Trump promised strict measures to put a stop on illegal immigration. He presented construction of a wall as an intelligent solution of an overly complicated problem. Democrats criticized this solution heavily as a wall is extremely easy to get around by digging under it, using tunnel systems, climbing the fence and using wire cutters to remove barbed-wire or locating and drilling holes in vulnerable sections of the border.

This political war extended beyond imagination and now has resulted in a partial government shutdown. On Dec. 11, in a nationally televised meeting, Trump warned Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that he would go ahead to the extent of shutting down the government to generate support for his agenda. He has tried to shift the blame on the Democrats since then.

Trump addressed the nation in a televised speech to state his case and vented his anger on Twitter.

“At this point, it has become their, and the Democrats, fault,” Trump tweeted on Monday.

Various federal agencies have partly closed or requested contractors to stop operating. Coast Guard personnel are serving without pay, the National Park Service is no longer collecting waste, and the Smithsonian museums have been closed for public visits.

The White House estimated a decline of 0.13 percentage in growth every week due to this shutdown.

What are your thoughts? Do you support the partial government shutdown?

Today is the day. Now is the moment. Vote for change.

    this president acts like a child having a temper tantrum the American people have become his victims. How do you shut down the government cause american people to lose all income and having to resort to food closets in order to feed their families. I pray we don’t see this man in the white house 2020.

    Yes, I’m almost always in favor of a government shutdown. In this case not for the border wall which is a stupid idea, or to stop paying the people that actually do help prevent illegal immigration like TSA, the Coast Guard, Homeland, ice, and other organizations.

    All who are here are descendants of immigrants. Pretty clear evidence that even those who called themselves indigenous are the descendants of folks who immigrated across the Bering Straits.

    Government shutdowns do several things. They prompt news outlets to cover exactly what it is tax dollars pay for. Also special interest are eager to get out the message that their particular slice of the Dole is most important. Likewise, the actual absence of services helps to educate people unjust which government functions we rely on and those that are Superfluous and that we do not need. A shutdown in general gives all citizens moments of pause to think about the purpose of government; protecting individual liberties.

    So when I say yes I’m in favor of a government shutdown no, it’s not because I want a ridiculous wall, which may cause more problems than it solves and which addresses the smallest portion of the illegal immigration problem. I support a shutdown because it is educational for the American public, and focuses the national conversation on just what it means to fund our government and for what purpose we do it.

    first i think this country needs term limits for all who work in congress. to many are power hungry such as the house leadership. im not giving any money for a wall. well they all swore a oath that means nothing to them to up hold our laws of this country. if the law of the land was followed we would not have this problem with illegals. the laws are their yet the congress does not wanna enforce them, why?
    why do we give away so much in this country when their are laws in place to allow someone to become a citizen. im a vet of over 25 years and what is this government doing for us, not really anything. we spend billions taking care of illegals and why do we wanna continue. allow them to vote why no other county does that, give them free medical care why we don’t take care of our own it goes on and on. we as a country make a big deal of thrump going to his place in fla, well what president or for that fact have members of congress done this. i past president he only ran off to hawaii all the time. what about his decisions with iran, gave them money that was not his to give. this just goes on and on.
    i hope and pray at some time our congress will be a united states congress and look after this country. why no budget, i do believe this is to be in place at the beginning of the fiscal year but never is done, another law that is ignored.
    come on people do ur job not take off on trips at tax payers expense

    Something must be done !

    Our forefathers followed it

    Else wise our doom is inevitable

    NO many of the people not getting paid are the very ones who hold our country secure.so ,is this irony or just pathetic?
    dea,coastguard,tsa,us marshals,even ntsb, a few major transportation hiccups that needed to be investigated and all sorts of services could stop or be slowed down,trains, planes, freighttrucks,bridges.
    and as for practical purpose.people climb over the finished sections.of “wall” everyday.
    are borderpatrol being paid
    ten years ago a border pilot i knew said the cuts to personnel and equipment were the big problem from thier side of the issue. would bet that hasn’t changed.also local cops in a border town told us that someone had to be arrested 3 times before they were deported.
    sister had experience of this with a stalker.
    the really damaging illegals don’t need to sneak across they fly in.
    tom ware’s second paragraph is dead on.

    and this only being the tip of the nasty iceberg thats been growing for 2 years.advocating racisim,sexism and pretty much any negative ‘ism you can think of.

    my 3 yr old niece has less tempertantrums than this so called government.

    i don’t have a mansion in florida to go hide in.

    I do not support a shut down that only address one issue of multi issue government stance. If you are so worried about immigration problems look at the real issue. The employers. That is the wall. No job opportunities no reason to jump the border. Well what about the crime and drug issues? I hate to say it but the less than 5% Of violent crime in our nation is fromillegal aliens. That leaves the majority of violent crimes against humanity by our own. We need totruely address the full issue. Not a few miles of it. Use 1/4 of the real money to fund a task force against the employers. If you don’t feed seagulls the won’t peck at your screen.

    As a nation we brought the Mexican population here by the 1000s when we needed them. WW1 and WW2 bused, train, ship, plane. To grow our crops to feed our nation and our overseas troops. Right now if the American Mexican population that we take advantage of so well. And take for granted. If they were to strike we would not eat well. In all facets. Unfortunately we have as a nation trained our youth that the jobs most Mexican population work in are beneath us as a nation . We have removed any opportunity to spark a desire to work in any of the following industries. Automotive, construction,foods, agriculture. We have effectively removed any opportunity to spark an interest by removing electives from schools. Instead replacing working class building blocks with higher education priorities and technology as a replacement. Hate to say it but all of those high paying office jobs require buildings, transportation, food,. Our nation is now reaping what we have planted. And again as our new nation grows lay blame on someone else and never address the real issues is our new way??? The generations of problem solvers are tired and long retired. Instead look to the inertnet??
