The national parks and monuments belong to us, the people of the United States, not the bureaucrats in D.C. They have no right to barricade anything. We can still visit any of them as we wish. Citizens everywhere should move barricades out of the way and cut locks the government may try to put on our property.

As far as I'm concerned, this federal government shutdown is one of the best things to happen to our country in a long time. I hope it lasts forever! Our national government has grown to be completely out of control.

Reining it in to only what it should be and giving power back to the states, where it should be, will be very good for the future of our country.

Our message to the Feds:

"Pave our streets, defend our shores ... and stay the Hell out of our lives!"
