They should shutdown the US dept. of defense, CIA,NSA, US dept. of justice, pentagon, US office of president Trump. After they do all these, surely war in Syria ,Afghanistan,Iraq and other US hostile acts will suddenly stop. The US and the world will have instant peace.

They need to shutdown for good

Money will not solve our problems Dr., and something tells me you know this by now.

A wall on our southern border will make us like Berlin. Jesse Ventura warned us of that, but no one listened.

We can go around and around but whilst we remain in this sick capitalistic oligarchy system, we are doomed. A wise 15 year old Swedish activist, Greta Thunberg, recently said at the UN " And if solutions within the system are so impossible to find, then maybe we should change the system itself."

Tell your Senators and Representatives what to do. Join up with Downsize D.C. They have many levers to help and make it easy.

Why isn't Dr. Paul not talking about the Yellow Vest in Europe???
Paul doesn't (((HEADLINE))) it in any of his Titles. Makes a big difference. ???

Government shutdown wasn't great for people who lost their jobs, you know? That stopped being paid. Not all government spending/jobs are bad, only an idiot deals in absolutes.

Born in 1966 and a Democrat from age 18.
Not one of us 4 voters in our house voted for Trump in 2016.
We say build the Wall. Employs people and puts money into the economy.
We hold everyone who does not fund the wall to blame.
We will be voting for Trump in 2020.
Bring home the troops and use Army Core of Engineers to help on the wall.

America is no longer a nation.
It has emigrated itself out of nationhood.
Since 9/11 America has become something else.

Bill Woo

Man, when he gets cranking on delivering that conclusion, so polished and brilliant, it takes my breath away. They just don't make 'em like that.
