The US Government Shakedown

“Government Shutdown” is an oxymoron, from the diseased brain of comorbid Republican morons. The so-called “shutdown” is not a shutdown at all; it's just the opposite. The shakedown, for all it’s worth, is a type of bullying from a government that never shuts down and never will. It's always "on" and it exists forever, like a vampire-fiend that grabs the throat of the People, dragging it like road-kill into the pit of Tea-Party-obstructionism to suck all the money out of its future. This time there’s no wooden stake to nail in its heart, because it has no heart. It’s the Undead American State in its most destructive, invasive and intrusive form: government as it was meant to be.

The US is in a War on Terror and Treason applies to disloyal acts committed during war. “Disloyal acts” would include shutting down the government, forcing the US credit rating to fall or causing the economy to collapse further than it has. People who give Aid and Comfort to enemies of the Constitution (for example, the Republican Party and the Tea Party) have committed treason. “Aid and comfort” refers to any act that betrays allegiance to the United States such as a government shakedown which weakens the United States. A person who is convicted of treason may not hold federal office at any time thereafter. So we can solve more than one problem at the same time.

Not saying “Yes!” doesn’t mean saying “No”. Maybe a Deutsche-style “Sturmabteilung” (SA) Citizen’s Action Militia could round-up all the US Representatives in one night, men and women who are members of the Tea Party, sympathizers and fellow-travelers. Designate them as “unlawful combatants” subject to capture and detention for disloyal acts against the People and charge them with treason. After that, Congress can pass laws to keep the government open, raise the debt ceiling, get the economy moving or whatever we need. Since the ideals of freedom and democracy haven’t worked to encourage compromise between our elected representatives in Congress and the President, maybe the Gulag will.
