If there's one thing I've learned from this shutdown, it's that they're all all liars and corrupt. They are willing to hold us all hostage to further their own political agenda -- which is 99% of the time just to get reelected! They're willing to take food out of the mouths of children and lie directly to our faces. (See Jim Matheson's tweets, for example, about finding a clean resolution to the shutdown while voting against ending the shutdown: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/10/14/1247222/-The-Seven-Lying-Democrats-That-Betroyed-Democracy-and-Joined-GOP-on-HR-368-to-Deny-Vote-on-Clean-CR)

I've started a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to raise as much of $5000 as I can. All the others in the team are doing similar projects to raise $500 to $5000 as well. If you can give even just a few dollars to this, great! If you can't but know someone who can, please share! If I can make this campaign go viral, there's a great chance that we can fund this group for a year or more to get the message out and put an end toward open defecation in India.
