As a libertarian, the past few days have been nothing but joy for me. a government shutdown that could last for weeks and even months, oh yeah.
But a few days ago I started having discussions with people from both sides, people who are for and against the wall and I noticed something, they both neglect -willingly or not- few key points that regarding fundamental aspects of government.
Let me explain what I mean, the proposed wall is estimated to cost from $10 to $15 Billion. which the Dems sight as too much, but is it really?
The U.S. spends almost $50 billion every year on if you check this map for example in 2017 the U.S. sent money to almost every country in the world check it here:

Why aren't the Dems up in arms about that?
that's not mentioning other government expenditures that eat the budget and create huge deficits
Isn't all this spending worthy of a government shutdown or is it just when Trump is the one who is spending and running deficits that the Dems get angry?
What do you guys think?
