I was shown this positively hilarious video from friendlyjordies. It’s a take…from a right wing perspective…on why the shutdown was a good thing!
It discusses the reasoning behind shutting down the government and refusing to raise the debt ceiling:
“We did it for you. We care about the future of this nation–as proven by the fact that we’re refusing to raise the debt ceiling, which the vast majority of credible economists warned would result in America falling from being the world’s greatest superpower…”
After all, it’s just not RIGHT that Americans are forced to take steps to ensure their continued good health. It’s tyranny!
“We shut down the government because forcing you to pay health insurance is…TOTAL TYRANNY…and we know a little something about tyranny! After all, we stole an election to ensure that the RIGHT PRESIDENT won as he had the chutzpah to respond to the largest terrorist attack in US history which happened on his watch with attacking not even the right countries in the name of getting even. And Dick Cheney’s Halliburton which provides oilfield services–a very handy coincidence when invading the world’s second largest oil producer.”
Besides, all the “debt” Obama is accumulating…well it’s just not for the RIGHT reasons. Bush’s purpose was far more
“Obama’s health care scheme, which is political code word for what the government’s agenda behind this evil policy is:(KEEPING YOU ALIVE!) Bush’s debt was for the far more noble purpose of killing between 400,000 and 900,000 civilians worldwide.”
That’s just a bit from this video. It’s recommended that you click play and laugh for a couple of minutes. After all, your government…is a joke.
