Politics of Fear: Why the Threat of a Government Shutdown is Bogus.


by Antenna Wilde

We are being bombarded by it; the horrible possibility of a government shutdown if the Dems and Reps don’t come to an agreement soon. Horse-puckey! Just another technique by the power elite to scare the public into accepting another attack on public services for the sake of the rich. Republicans claim tax breaks for billionaires are necessary because they create jobs, but the only jobs they are creating are overseas.
The Dems and Reps are two sides of the same coin: Reps slash programs that benefit people like seniors, the disabled and education, while the Dems cry foul but do nothing about it. For decades the Dems have been accused of being spineless—and with good reason—but the real reason is to facilitate the power elite agenda under the guise of making an effort in the *two party* system. This is why the “negotiations” are always behind closed doors. Fascinating how these public servants can’t let the actual public know what they’re really saying, that would be unfair to the snakes in office, and they make the rules, after all.
There will be no government shutdown, it’s a hoax. At the last minute, Obama will agree to the majority of the Republican agenda for the same reason he did before: it’s the same agenda of the power elite, you know, those who put him in office. Sure, lots of people *voted* for him, but make no mistake: he wouldn’t have been on a ticket if he didn’t make a deal with GE, Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Citibank, not to mention Big Oil and the military industrial complex. Funny how no one mentions cutting military spending while we spend ten times more than anyone else.
The government won’t shut down because the government makes the power elite their money by staying open for business. I’d love to see a government shutdown, just like I would love to see those banks *fail*, but it will never happen. Here’s a scenario that exemplifies why the government won’t shutdown: You own a business selling widgets, and the widgets are bought using public funds. You are in charge of deciding how many widgets are to be provided, and also how much funds will be made available for the purchasing of the widgets. Not a business too big to fail, just a *business* that cannot fail!
