Don't worry, that was also the thought of most Americans.

It's only a partial shut down. Social Security is going on, Military is going on, mail is getting delivered, but a lot of employees in other sections were told to just go home until further notice. Many without pay.

that was my thought too. And i'm European too. Here the president can dismiss the parliament, but the last time that happened was in 1975. then there must be new elections. i'm not sure if this is good grammar.

if the federal government is shut down, wouldn't that make each of the states their own countries?

Most governments actually have a shut down feature, which kicks into motion if the government cannot agree on a budget before the deadline. In those situations, the government is legally obligated to shut down.

In most governments of course, that's not really an issue, as most responsible governments would settle their differences like grownups. Also, in a very socialist country (like large parts of Europe) a government shutdown would cripple the country, probably eradicating the economy and that of all other countries who depend on the first country's economy.

Only non essential parts of it. Mainly National museums and national parks but some other things as well.

basically, no funding is going anywhere, except congress for some stupid ass reason, though the military has some reserve funds to keep them going for a few months if I remember right

Have you never played Civilization the board game? go into a state of anarchy then transition next turn into a new gov.

Unfortunately this means that Obama's gonna be aiming to make us socialist. Can't wait to see his next step towards being the first US president to be arrested for treachery.
