You might be among the many conservatives who believe President Trump caved by reaching a deal to reopen the government without any guarantee of funding for a border wall. Us? We’re not happy about it.

On Saturday, the Washington Post ran a piece essentially confirming that Chuck and Nancy had won, and that all Trump had done through the shutdown was to prove to the American people how much they need government.

You could also write a similar piece saying how hard the mainstream media went out of its way to find weeping D.C. taxi drivers and furloughed government workers standing in food lines.

But did the shutdown really demonstrate how much Americans need government? Or was it something else?

Exactly.
