Bell the cat.

We do spend too much on defense though; I'll admit that. I mean it's impractical because it's unlikely to be politically feasible.

6. I would submit that the ONLY way you could ever cut the defense budget is with full public financing
   
In fact, pretty much any significant reform is going to require cutting the life line between corporate money and government.

And we are so not even close to accomplishing it.

4. You're dreaming
   
no - you're not wrong - it's just that there's a step ahead of that one, and that step is a doozy... take the government back from its corporate controllers. Until that step is taken, cutting our military budget is nothing more than a fantasy.

5. I'm afraid we need to go back to formula with America
   
I'm not sure tinkering with the product we've developed to this point is gonna have much of an effect.

I know the DUmmies are mathematically impaired, but here's a question any third-grader can answer: Which slice of the pie is bigger?




I say we get rid of Other.  What has Other ever done for you?  For me?!  Screw Other!   :angryvillagers:

:whatever:

If you want to worship an orange pile of garbage with a reckless disregard for everything, get on down to Arbys & try our loaded curly fries.

I would cut the social services spending by 90%.

That'd solve a lot of problems, including the problem of the primitives.

Cut the defense budget?? When Social Security and Medicaid takes up over half the pie? **** that. How about privatize SS, fix Medicaid (I know some people out there still need it), and pay our soldiers who put their asses on the lines everyday to protect the likes of these pukes, at least DOUBLE of what they're making! How do ya like that!?

No, my friends, there’s only one really progressive idea. And that is the idea of legally limiting the power of the government. That one genuinely liberal, genuinely progressive idea — the Why in 1776, the How in 1787 — is what needs to be conserved. We need to conserve that fundamentally liberal idea. That is why we are conservatives. --Bill Whittle
