The stroke of midnight has just passed and the US government has turned into a pumpkin. Well, we wish. In fact the US government like some eternal zombie continues to walk the Earth even without the souls of taxpayers upon which to feast. And, even that isn’t totally true. Like any zombie it still collects the blood of its victims (taxes) even while most of its zombie army (federal government employees) sit at home on a paid vacation… and most of their oppressive “services” continue on, like the CIA, NSA, ATF, DEA, Executive branch, police and more.
But just for our pleasure, let’s imagine that all government in the US really shut down… which it will in the coming years as the US dollar collapses.
Here, then, is our top 10 list of ways a theoretical shutdown of the US government would affect you in that event… and we include a few ways the current pseudo-shutdown will also affect you (hint: it’s better).
