I am puzzled, and quite frankly amused, at all the rhetoric being spewed out from the left about who’s to blame for the government shutdown.

Honestly, both sides share some of the blame, but the vast majority of the blame belongs to the Democrats. Why? Because they refuse to even talk to Republican leaders. The Republicans tried their best to avoid this shutdown. It was them who tried to pass a bill that would have defunded Obamacare. When that wouldn’t work, they tried to delay it; then they tried to take away special exemptions. That didn’t work either. They want to fund every part of the government except the atrocious and super-expensive so-called “Affordable Care Act,” which is costing us four times the amount we originally thought.

I don’t care what the Supreme Court said; Obamacare is unconstitutional. Everyone who knows their history knows that the Supreme Court has made plenty of bad decisions. To name two of them, there’s the Dred Scott v. Sanford decision, which declared that slaves were not citizens, then there’s the Brown v. Board of Education decision, which declared racial segregation in schools legal. Thankfully, the Court later reversed these bad decisions.

My point is the Democratic Party is to be (mostly) blamed for this shutdown. During the shutdown of 1996, the Grand Canyon and other Parks were not shut down. Why are they doing it now?

I’ll tell you why: to inflict as much pain on the American people as possible.
