Why is our government shutdown over something that isn't even 1% of the budget?

More like 0.1% of the budget, but Democrats were never that good with math.

The same people that voted for Trump would have STILL voted for Trump even if they thought Mexico wouldn't pay for the wall. The "Mexico will pay for the wall" part was just to troll the media and troll other Republican primary contenders into advertising the main point: Trump wants to drastically reduce low-skilled immigration and reform immigration so that it is a net benefit to existing American citizens, and specifically, not a terrible deal to existing low-skilled American citizens.

Did his trolling work? Oh my god yes! The crowning glory of this troll was at the second primary debate. It was either Little Marco or Mr. Low Energy that said something like: I also will build a wall, but I'll make Mr. Trump pay for it! That candidate though he was just being funny. (And it was funny!) But wow! That candidate was agreeing that we need a wall AND GIVING TRUMP CREDIT FOR IT by associating the Trump name with it. Amazing. Harnessing your competitor to praise you and get your message out.

Even if Mexico sent a check tomorrow, Congress would still have to appropriate it for the wall.
That’s how government works, boys and girls!
n00bz lolz!

Actually he was right, and not trolling, there are many ways for Mexico to pay:

The real reason why the government is shut down is because of revenge politics. The R's and the D's keep taking pot shots at each other, with the Citizens getting caught in the cross fire.

How can Trump be a liar by keeping every promise he has made? He is the only President who has ever done that. The rest just lie to get elected.

Anybody seen $5,600,000,000 in Pesos?
Where's the 35% tariffs?
How long does it take to declare a Natl. Emergency?
Trump never said he was a Socialist but gives tax dollars to Rep/Con farmer failures
that are sure to reject any Americans' hard earned confiscated dollars.
Rep/Con coal miners & unemployed rustbelters you will get free money soon.
At least he's worked so hard he hasn't been able to visit his golf courses & he said he wouldn't have time.

"President-elect Donald Trump touted his own health care legislation as a “great” and cheaper alternative to ObamaCare on Wednesday, assuring that “nobody is going to be dying on the streets” when he takes over the Oval Office."

Nope.

NAFTA was renegotiated. Trump won.

Dunno. 10 minutes?

I doubt if Dem farmers were excluded. Stop spreading fake news.
Welfare Queen democrats get free money, but hard working laid off Republicans should not?

Good to know someone is working. Obama had lots of time to hit the golf course.

Trump proposes a border “Hunger Games,” allowing citizens to shoot migrants

Three independent sources with direct knowledge of the meeting, confirmed the proposal. Trump asked if hunting licenses could be sold, which would allow hunters to kill a maximum number of migrants. Trump proposed the idea to a group that included Kelly, Jared Kushner, Mike Pence, and Barron Trump, the President’s 12-year old son.

President Trump wanted raise money to build the wall through these hunting fees. Trump said that he could sell to his political base that “Mexico was paying for it” because dead Mexicans created the revenue and incentive for the hunting tags. Our sources, who recently left the FBI, said that Trump got the idea from Rush Limbaugh.

Honestly, I don't know the difference between NAFTA and USMCA. I was never enthusiastic about Trump renogiating trade agreements with allies. China, yes, but not allies.
I know Trump won because he is pleased with the outcome.
Trump needs to focus more on what hurts us the most, not what hurts us the least.
