Here is a response to the people who believe it is the GOP/Republicans who have shut the government down.
It is absolutely the Democrats and Obama who have done it, not the GOP. They have gone about smearing lots of eyes shut over it, too. God help all of us.
Here is something serious to consider: The Bible says that at that last day when we shall all stand before God, he will separate the sheep from the goats. The goats on the left and the sheep on the right.
Now what is considered a goat (bad, evil, bully, etc.) and sheep (gentle, docile, etc.)? So now as you know, the Democrats have placed themselves squarely on the left and the Republicans on the right. So you see that we all judge oursleves. Nothing racist about this at all.
Read your Bible, and get a tight relationship to Christ daily and he will be your everlasting shield.
