As with most actions in politics, if you want to know who really is calling the shots, follow the money
Who, then, has bought the current government shutdown? It must be a very devious and selfish group because as the shutdown continues it hurts more and more people. In a few weeks, a shutdown could bring the entire U.S. economy down. If you sabotage the "full faith and credit" of the United States of America, 99% of the American people are effected negatively. Who benefits?
The real financiers of this shutdown have been planning for it almost from the day Barack Obama was sworn into office as President of the United States. These wealthy individuals and groups have no interest in the nation of the United States. They are interested solely in their own pocketbook. It transcends ideology, it is a selfishness that is bigger than the future of the U.S. It will steamroller anybody or anything that gets in its way. It is incomprehensible to most human beings. And trashing the "other" 99% is always a part of their agenda and advancement techniques.
Follow the money. Who is fighting to "stop Obamacare at all costs"? Well, ask yourself, what private corporations and individuals are striving to maximize their money in the healthcare field? Who wants to maximize profits out of the sick? It isn't rocket science. Think!
This sort of selfishness and greediness is at the heart and soul of the tea party movement. It is not the little puppets in Congress or other facets of our political system. They are just bought and sold. The rest of the tea party has simply been duped. They are suckers for the old carnie characters who pick your pocket for their own stash of the loot.
As we now watch the United States of America stumble and fail during the shutdown, don't be confused, just follow the money. We are dealing with a deviousness and greediness that transcends most of anyone's darkest thoughts. It is time for Americans to begin to start thinking. Follow the money.
