'We the People' need to take back our fate

The government shut down is crap. Engineered by the Democrats to cause as much grief as possible, and to punish the Republicans and the American public.

 

All parties have reached a stalemate that nobody will move forward to break.

I have an answer. Set up a national referendum, and let the people vote and decide how to proceed.

Make the vote binding and set it up as a permanent solution for when this nonsense happens in the future.

“We the People” are clearly no longer being represented by either party.

It seems the Democrats, Republicans and King Obama just has their own agenda and doesn’t care what “We the People” think.

Time for us, “We the People”, to take control away from these warring factions and decide our own fate.
