24 Eye-Opening Traveler Tweets That Show The Dangers Of A Government Shutdown


Depending on your point of view, the United States and the United Kingdom can be seen as great bastions of liberal democracy, progress, and freedom; or imperial powers struggling to hold on to the power and wealth accumulated largely through colonialism and war.

Either way, the rest of the world looks on in curiosity as the governments of these once great nations decide to disengage from hard-won international treaties and agreements, put their fingers in their ears to economic realities and begin to build walls around themselves, now that they aren't allowed to just take from everyone else anymore.

But while Donald Trump stokes nonsensical fear of terrorist hordes, flooding over the border to justify his precious wall for 'national security,' people are finding themselves in real and present danger due to the government shutdown he has called to get his way.

1. This just makes me so angry.

The people that are suffering most from this shutdown are those who can least afford it. Why is it always the poor and lower middle class who need to suffer when the rich fuck up? In the future, when the government shuts down, every politician should go with out pay and perks. Their health insurance should be suspended as well. They need to pay for their own incompetence. It has to hurt for them too.

4. Hope every person standing in those airport lines takes out their phone and calls

their Senators and Reps and tells them to get the government running again. Also, I want them to blame little, lying Donnie.
