  3. Should Democrats just make a deal for the wall to end the shut down?

Why must both sides act like children? Democrats should be the adults in the room and end this shutdown!

they should have done it from the very beginning. now there is no reason to believe them when they say 'we helped you, help us over an issue we care about' and then claim to be the mature, responsible types who care about keeping the government open when republicans predictably fall on their backs, cry, and s*** themselves when told 'we helped you, help us over an issue we care about'

basically justified nannabooboo politics with their actions. it wasn't principled. it was idiotic. and now we're all f***ed. think of an issue that you genuinely care about that 'the other side' can completely deny to you on the grounds not that you are making a good point, but they think your idea is for stupey-dumb-dumbs. it's pretty much every single topic/issue that comes to mind, right? exactly. which means we're all f***ed.

we can no longer agree based on logic and reason. we are now forced to fight each other and we no longer need an excuse. just call them stupey-dumb-dumb, fall on your back, cry, s*** yourself and we'll be continuing a tradition. all because of opposition to the wall. lovely

term coined: nannabooboo politics. you're gonna see it a lot more now.
Most capitalists don't know that you can't become rich without doing the opposite of Jesus Christ's golden rule. Maybe that's why rich folk don't go to heaven.

it's a 3 way tug of war. if demo's give in they lose and trump can keep using government shutdowns as a bargaining chip whenever trump doesn't get his way.

This.

You can't give in to terrorists because then they'll just have even more motivation to attack you in the future.
It's like punching a round bottom dummy. We all know it's futile, but occasionally it's fun.

It's almost politically impossible to extinguish your opponent when they insist on setting themselves on fire. Also, Trump's base will kill any deal that involves something like the DREAM act, which is the only sort of concession that makes political sense.

DACA kids are US citizens and can vote in 2020.

Yeah, we should make a deal.
Then cancel the wall in 2020.

would you rather have your house burned down or knocked over by a wrecking ball?

The wall has it's own negative impact so there is no sense trading one bad situation for another

Every shutdown is a game of political chicken while both parties look at the polling on who is to blame.

Since the polling is running against Trump and the Republicans, Democrats should stand firm and outwait the Republicans.

This is what passes for representative government in the US these days...
