  • I would cancel the space program, stop giving money to big AG, and curtail the military. I would guarantee a college or trade school education to all of our children. I would mandate two years of national service (military, VISTA, etc.) for all 18 year olds.

  • For starters I wouldn't allow my tax dollars to fund Israel's genocide of the Palestinians people. I hate the fact that like 7 millions dollars A DAY of our tax dollars are sent to them while we borrow money from China.

  • We would not even be a country today if not for the space program. We would not be sitting here arguing with each other on the internet. We would not have news as it happens, we would be a third world country in SOOO many ways

  • Why pay the willing when you can make the unwilling do it for free? Yeah, that spells strong national defense.

  • I would make my first cuts to unessential social programs. Note I said UNESSENTIAL. There also wouldn't be any money for marsh mice or turtle tunnels or any kind of crap like that. I would also cut salaries and benefits to our congressional leaders. They would also see a huge drop in their own little budgets. I would also drastically lower aid to other countries. We should not be BORROWING money to give to another country. Let them borrow their own.

    I would also eliminate a lot of federal mandates..too many things to go into here.

    A lot of stuff..it would probably take a book to get it all in!
