Government Shutdown Day 14: Excuse Me, But These People Are Idiots; I Withdraw My Consent

I, along with likely millions of other Americans, have had it with the sloths in Washington.


They are, by far, the most incompetent assemblage of buffoons masquerading as political, cultural and economic leaders as has ever been encountered in hundreds of years of parliamentary-style government.

They do not have the consent of the people, as the majority of Americans able to vote have not voted for them. They are, therefore, illegitimate, and the sooner the American people awaken to this fact, the better off we shall be as a nation.

They have not come to any kind of agreement on either a continuing resolution or a raising of the debt ceiling, both of which are merely stop-gap measures, designed only to keep the status quo intact.

As far as I am concerned, they can take their deliberations and negotiations and shove them up their collective arses. They are not worthy of governing me, you or anybody on the planet.

I will no longer engage in the dubious practice of analyzing their moves, their motivations, their duplicitous machinations of public policy. The current senators, representatives in the house, the president and the supreme court, have shown, by their actions, to be incapable of carrying out their most basic duty, that being the upholding and defense of the constitution.

I will no longer abide by any federal laws nor be subject to fines or penalties in defiance of them.

I withdraw my consent.

I attest to these statements under clear mind and conscience, this fourteenth day of October, 2013.

By the way, take a look at those volume figures. The system is grinding to a complete halt and there's nothing they or anybody else can do about it.
