Call your congressional representative! TONIGHT! RIGHT NOW!
Express your views! Your educated opinion!
Make sure he/she understands that because of Obamacare, 90% of your RECREATIONAL, duck hunting hunting spots will be closed this season.
Then take a comfortable seat and wait.
Your local rep (if you live in Eastern Washington, that is) may (or may not) have one of their interns call you to explain that they have higher priorities, like addressing the concerns of one (or more) of their constituents who are about to go on furlough, and not get a pay check until this situation is resolved.
Take a seat, 'cause it will take a while before your congressperson responds.
In the meantime, read a little while you are at it. It will do you good!
Investigate what happened when we had the last shutdown (and how history repeats itself). Point no fingers to Dems or Reps. Just look at the consequences, and figure out what is going to happen to YOUR political party.
It will do you good.
I'm not sure you are correct about history repeating itself here Triggerman, I guess we'll all have to wait and see.
Obama is not concerned about his run in 2016 like Clinton was the first time around. He is working on his "legacy" and doesn't have much motivation to negotiate.
With approximately 50% of US citizens not paying taxes and more illegals than ever (some may vote idk?) I don't think the current economy is enough to spur those people who are currently getting a free ride to support another Republican revolution. After all Republicans say you should pay your own way and work hard for what you want. At least that's what they say, I don't know if they really believe it.
I don't see another Newt Gingrich currently. Like him or hate him, the guy clearly was very driven, intelligent and cunning. I'm not sure there is currently someone out there that can fill his shoes to ensure history repeats itself once again.
Either way, I'm going to be killing ducks in Alberta soon and I hope this mess is settled by the time I get back.
