 Are there programs that the government funds that you believe shouldn't be funded by the government? What programs should be plain non-profits and solicite donations like other non-profits.

State funding or federal funding? (It drastically changes my answer.)

It would be easier to list what SHOULD be funded. I would cut everything except the military, the Supreme Court and enough funding for Congress to do their actual job (keep a balanced budget and keep the states from violating the Constitution).

 I agree actually.  The purpose of the gov't is not to fund all of these random programs....there's so many it's absurd, and the majority of them people are clueless about.

Yup, the federal government as few, very specific jobs. Those are what they should fund. Everything else is left to the States.
