Dozens of .gov HTTPS certs expire, webpages offline, FBI on ice, IT security slows... Yup, it's day 20 of Trump's govt shutdown

There's also no reason for the government to be as big as it is. The park service could be spun off as a non-profit or several non-profits. The TSA could be private as its duties are already carried out at some airports by private contractors and, at least in my experience, those airports were better for it. Likewise many duties done by the likes of USDA and FDA could be performed by entities similar to UL, DNV, FM, ABS, etc. and none would be impacted by a government shutdown.
