Epsilon: There are so many stories where some brave hero decides to give their life to save the day, and because of their sacrifice, the good guys win, the survivors all cheer, and everybody lives happily ever after. But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.

Agreed, but that is all the more reason for them to do their job IMHO. I am worried that bad things will happen.

"Why is the government shutting down?"

The GOP has come up with another hair-brained scheme to use the approaching shutdown deadline to try to defund Obamacare, but the Democrats will most definitely not agree to defund it and hence a shutdown is likely if both parties maintain their stance
