Mr. Speaker, I once again find myself compelled to vote against the annual budget resolution for a very simple reason: it makes government bigger. ― Ron Paul
Timid men prefer the calm of despotism to the tempestuous sea of Liberty. Thomas Jefferson
My party believes there should be different standards when it comes to American citizens and non-citizens.
That all Americans should have the same Constitutional rights and protections. That non-citizens shouldn't have all of the same rights.
Where as the Democrat Party believes that all Americans aren't equal. That some Americans should have more rights and protections than the majority. But the Democrats go further, they believe that non-citizens and illegal aliens should have more rights than American citizens. Like having access to the National Mall when access is denied to American citizens.
Regardless, I think Congresspersons of either party should be at the Capitol working on a solution to the shutdown. Preferably with the door locked until they come up with something. If we cut off their paychecks and locked them in a papal-style conclave we'd have a solution really quick.
