Civilians who are furloughed are in a "No work" and "No pay" status. So they actually won't automatically get paid for this time off.

I hope President Trump take this as an opportunity to go, see we don't need these positions after all, we're gonna keep them shut down and release them into the private market. Guarantee there will never be another government shutdown during his presidency.

I know. Imagine if they just never started it back up and the many states just formed a confederation to deal with international and national issues following a literal definition of the Constitution.

You seem to be thinking of the Articles of Confederation, which were a total debacle, which is why the constitution was drafted in the first place.

Agreed. It's now corporate feudalism. However, the shutdown is temporary. The corporate lords won't allow us sovereignty for very long.

It may be corporate but feudalism? Yes, don't leave the company you work for because they provide your housing directly on site. Going off campus would litterally be going beyond the pale.

Why do we need Marines again? Or a standing army? To stop us from being invaded? Whoops, looks like they didn't do that. To protect the constitution? Whoops, haven't done that in 100 years. There's a reason the founding fathers didn't want standing army's. They only work for their kike masters.

The Marines serve at the direction of the President of the United States and could be used for good or bad and as we have seen in the past, only bad. But if Trump wants to survive some sort of coup then he will need more than the SS.

I’m all for ridding ourself of any standing Armies as well.

No they do not. As of right now they will only be paid on the 1st of Feb. after that- no. No one will be paid.

Nope. They only get paid what was already funded. Once a spending bill of some sort is passed they will get back pay but they will get nothing after this next check without a bill.
