If the government shutdown isn't a lesson for every American citizen in this country, then we have learned nothing! It's time we have a complete ousting of these so-called "public servants."
They are spoiled brats with gigantic egos sucking from our government (hello, you and me) with their salaries, benefits and retirement packages -- and we let it continue. Shame on us.
They are not doing their jobs, and in any other industry in our country, they would have been fired. So, people, let's fire them -- all of them, one by one, vote by vote. Like we remember 9/11, we must remember October 2013 in all future elections.
In reality, this is all about ego and power. It's not about the good of the people. I once read this quote from spiritual author Eckhart Tolle: "Power over others is weakness disguised as strength." Who in Congress comes to mind when you read this quote? Everybody!
Get them out -- get them all out.
