    There is a difference. The difference is, the GOP shut down government because they did not want to increase the debt ceiling, however, they ultimately buckled and conceded.

    The Dims, on the other hand, will ultimately prevail, either via Congress or the courts.

    The message is, Dims control the federal government no matter what the election results may provide.

    Well, you can't be too hard on Chuckie; after all, the Democrats are still trying to decide who they are and what they stand for, so naturally they want to put the country on hold until they work it out.

    I'm sure Chuckie thinks shutting down the Government is good for the country.............I don't. But then Chuckie is a dimocrap.

    Bill Clinton shut down government one time and the left wing media blamed Newt Gingrich. This time you can bet your ass(ets) that they will blame Trump if it happens.

    Of course, they know what they stand for.

    They stand for unrestricted immigration with open borders, abortion under any circumstance, and a government takeover of any thing that moves.

    The issue for them is, how to continually repackage all this as something palatable, much like Obama having to lie about Obamacare not costing more or having as good as coverage as the previous system?

    Can't remember who said it:

    "Republicans hold office while Democrats hold power"

    If they keep it up they will lose 18 and 20
