GOP miscalculates consequences of shutdown: A person who sells eggs doesn’t start a fight in the market
The US government is on its knees, still shut down by the Republican party, despite the outrage of the people. It is clear that the GOP has miscalculated the consequences of their actions. This shutdown is causing them more trouble than they anticipated. The world is watching and discovering the weaknesses of the most powerful country on earth. The majority of Americans blame the GOP for this mess and their party’s popularity is at the lowest.
While it was important for the GOP to reinvent a new strategy to attract voters, it shouldn’t have started a fight while their party was struggling. As the Hausa of Niger say, “A person who sells eggs doesn’t start a fight in the market.”
