What happens in a government shutdown? Not a whole lot but it makes a great scare tactic and ploy to make the Republicans look bad.
In a government shutdown, around 40% of government workers are off work BUT once the situation is resolved, back pay is normally issued. Think about it. That 40% doesn’t have to work for the duration of the shutdown but will get paid for the time they didn’t work. And, in spite of worse-case scenarios proclaimed by the media, government assistance, welfare, social security, and the post office will proceed as normal. Zoos and national parks would be closed but that could hardly be called a life-altering situation.
Interesting expenditure comparison: According to recent numbers, building the proposed wall to safeguard our country would be around $25 billion dollars while the cost of non-citizens who are in our country for free just about anything, runs into our tax dollars in the neighborhood of $130 billion dollars a year. Should really emphasize the tragedy of our veterans, some of which live on the streets after having served our country for a lot less. We have homeless and hungry children who are citizens and possibly living on a lot less.
An interesting fact: Israel puts a lie to the Democratic proclamation that walls don’t work . . . The border wall in Israel has cut their illegal immigration by 99%.

The midterms are upon us and, traditionally, a big presidential win by either party, usually results in a low turn-out for the party currently in power and gives the other party a possible head’s up in turning the tide in anticipation for the 2020 presidential election.
While we had a good turn out for the presidential election, many people may not feel the need to defend their turf come November. Knowing this, the Democrats are out to take over the House and, if successful, make the rest of President Trump’s term miserable for him. Uh, as if that hasn’t been their ongoing goal since November 2016.
Over the years, I have heard so many people tell me why they couldn’t vote:
1. I forgot to re-register to vote after I missed voting in the last election.
2. It was raining that day and I didn’t want to wait in line. (Voting is indoors!)
3. With my children in school, I need to be home in case there is an emergency. (Cell phone?)
4. I home school and don’t want to disrupt the day. (A living lesson in our country and how it works?)
5. If I register to vote, I will get called for Jury Duty. (They don’t go by the voting lists.)
6. I really didn’t know who to vote for or even who was running and for what? (You take pride in this?
7. I had a headache, fever, stomach . . . (fill in the blanks!)
8. Oh, was yesterday voting day?
After over two years of fake media reporting, trying to thwart the president’s job, initiating various uprisings about whatever faction feels slighted that day, are we really going to give the opposition a chance to undo the good work and changes to date? And, if you feel there has not been anything of value done since November 2016, you haven’t been reading all the news. Just the fact that unemployment is down, jobs are more plentiful, and taxes were cut and reflected in your take home pay should be enough to get one to the polling place. We could go into more details about President Trump’s handling of some dictators, allies, negotiating better trade values but if you didn’t care enough to listen when it happened, you probably won’t believe it now.
So, just a thought-provoking reminder that voting is coming up soon. Voting is important. And leaving it up to a few to keep our politicians in office, might not be enough. Just think! One of the first things on the Democrat agenda is to rescind the tax cuts, impeach the president, and reinstate as much of the previous eight years as possible.
Still not convinced? It seems to me that every vote a person doesn’t bother to use, means a vote for the other side. As Christians/Catholics, the only chance for pro-life standards comes from the current administration. In essence, the vote you don’t use will be a vote to a party who has a firm platform in placehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FgPx25jYSQg for abortion in place. You might not consider yourself in favor of abortion but your absence at the polling place will signal strongly that you didn’t care enough to keep an adamantly pro-abortion political party out of office in hopes of saving more unborn.
Never ask how low the democrats can go to push their own agenda because they work very hard at trying to see how low they can go.
Now, isn’t it true that democrats donate funding to their various agendas and if they have a group or business that would welcome money in turn for supporting their democratic brethren, I have yet to hear anyone threaten or chastise them. Remember how they supported the restaurant that kicked out Sarah Sanders?
Well, In-N-Out dared to donate a check to the Republican faction and you’d think they had presented the check in person with a mob carrying disrespectful banners about the conservatives. You know, like the democrats usually handle things? Nope, In-N-Out gave the Republicans a donation and the democrats didn’t like it so they, as usual, verbally attacked and started another turmoil in town.
Well, I have taken note of this concern. We have an In-N-Out within walking distance from home. I’m thinking of going over there these weekend and give them . . . money in exchange for one of their great hamburgers and fries. Maybe I will give them a twenty and force them to have to make change. That will show them, right!
So far, the first votes of the election season have been anything but stellar for the Republicans which leads me to wonder . . . Where were all the Republican voters that helped turn the tide on the Democrats in November 2016?
We still have a good many more state elections on list for 2018 and if the results continue with such a lack of enthusiasm on the part of the Republican voters we will face all the guaranteed promises of the Democrats listed above.
How soon the Republican voters seems to forget the joy the morning after voting November 2016. It was a pleasant surprise to the Republicans and, obviously, a horrible shock to the Democrats who believed what they wanted as that elections season progressed rather than recognize the snowball that was building momentum.
As we all know, from the moment the presidential votes were confirmed, it has been open season on Republicans and their elected choice for president. Given the turmoil, untruths perpetuated by the press, the grief of the Hollywood actors, and the subsequent verbal and physical attacks on anyone with some unapproved (by the left) bumper sticker or hat, you’d think the Republicans would have gathered forces to repeat their victory across the board again. Complacency just two years down the road from 2016 doesn’t bode well for the final election results of 2020.
Think about the previous eight years before the election of President Trump . . . Do you really want obama supported candidates to have a chance at our laws, our Constitution, and our freedoms, again?
