Ron Paul: “My Government Shutdown Would Be Something to be Proud of.”


Reports are indicating that Congress has narrowly avoided a government shutdown that was slated to take effect at midnight tonight. After a tumultuous day, the House approved a $1.1 trillion spending bill that keeps the government open through September. The bill would keep most of the government running through the end of September, but only funds the Department of Homeland Security through February, when Republicans have vowed to pass new restrictions on the agency responsible for carrying out Obama’s executive orders on immigration.

Ron Paul exposes Congress’s ruse as nothing more than a mediocre PR stunt and emphasises there is nothing to worry about.

“Politicians pontificate and lay blame. The media becomes the judge and the jury of who’s at fault for the non-crisis. Nothing important ever stops. Government is on perpetual autopilot. The Fed, the regulators, the wars, the executive orders, the entitlement system—the entire system doesn’t even pause.

What would I shut down if given the opportunity for it to have any meaning?

First, the Fed. No more welfare for the rich.

Second, the IRS. Let the people keep all of their earnings and spend their money in their own interest.

Third, abolish the NSA, the TSA, the CIA and all spying on American citizens.

Spending would stop, no federal printing presses and no stolen money from the people would end entitlements, which mostly go to the rich. And all of our wars—we would come home from the 150 countries where we have troops stationed.

Now that’s a government shutdown that would not go unnoticed and something to be proud of!”


Rather than Congress spending the American people’s hard earned money by stalling and acting like prima donnas, perhaps they should begin making a collaborative effort to turn this crazy train around. Taking some of Mr. Paul’s suggestions and making massive cuts across the board could buy us a little time to try and figure out a way to save our country from an full out economic collapse.
