Nobody ever claimed that a government shutdown would end life as we know it.

The government shutdown is an embarrassment to our country by showing just how dysfunctional the greatest country on Earth has become.

And let's not forget that the shutdown began while the Republicans where in charge of all branches of government.

Isn't it ironic that the party that feels strongly that government is inherently a bad thing is also so willing to prove that while they run the government?

And many of our fellow Americans' lives are made more difficult because of the shutdown, not that any of the Trump supporters here give a damn about them.

Unpopular opinion: I really hate political parties. I feel like when we call ourselves Democrats or Republicans, we all forget what we are Americans - Americans that love the country and each other. - David Hogg
