The problem with politics…

Cruel Edward the Longshanks, talking to his advisors about how to deal with rebellious William Wallace and his Scottish countrymen, diagnosed the problem:

“The trouble with Scotland is that it’s full of Scots…” (Braveheart, 1995)

Fast-forward to present day Washington D.C., and the concept is apropos…

The trouble with Politics is…that it’s full of politicians.

The economy is at a standstill, debt exploded to $17 trillion, Middle East going up in flames, 9 million jobs have been lost, federal agencies are intimidating private citizens…

…the Congress and President have unprecedented high disapproval ratings…

…and we’re ‘concerned’ about a government shutdown…?

Seems like, with all that’s transpired, Americans would pray for a shutdown!
