The shutdown will not end until Republicans do what they don't want to....

and that's admitting to a few facts.

Yes all those lovely wars you like cost a lot of money, and lives.

No 30+ years of tax cuts for the richest among us is not sound government policy.

Yes, some one working at a minimum wage job does have a job and is working. They should be able to provide for themselves at the very least.

No, sensible laws and regulations do not take away your 'freedum'. They try to ensure that your dum doesn't take from some one else.

Yes, people have a right to health care. And education. And housing. And let's throw in CLEAN air and water. Basically they have the right to live. Isn't that something you support?

No, there is nothing wrong with getting some help when you need it. Helping our neighbors makes the towns, villages, or cities where we live strong, safer, better.

I guess the means we'll have to look for another way out of this.

I can work with a moderate repug, shoot I'm still trying to work with the DNC.

If acknowledging a few facts make you liberal, then there never would have been any Conservatives.
