ANALYSIS/OPINION:

I wonder how the Democrats can look in a mirror thinking that they weren’t guilty of shutting down the government. I watched numerous Democratic politicians blame the Republicans for the shutdown saying it was all on them but every single one of them refused to accept responsibility knowing that the Senate was a 60-51 split in their favor. Their whole premise for the most part for not voting for a budget pertained to DACA, those children brought to this country illegally by their parents.

The fact that Democrats would put the rights of illegal aliens over the rights of the people of this country cutting the military paychecks and keeping their own salaries is despicable at best. There is also a little thing called “Preamble to the Constitution” that I will excerpt for brevity: “We the People of the United States” will provide for the common defense, which means that the Democrats have violated our Constitution by blocking a vote in favor of illegals.

As for those reported 800,000 children who have roots in this country I have a suggestion. It has been reported that many of the kid’s ages range between 24 to 37 years of age. Instead of letting those unemployed living off the taxpayers dime put them in the military for a couple of years to earn the right to live in this country. If they are not able for whatever reason, then let them work in community service and earn their way. In any situation I wouldn’t give them the same pay because it’s all about earning their own way. If they have a problem with that then they can blame their parents.
