    FREEZE all tax and spending levels until we have a balanced budget. (We will NEVER pay off the national debt.) Economic growth and/or inflation are the only real solutions.

    sound management .. the Pentagon would solve 70% of the imbalance - redistribution above 10 million would finish the job.

    Restore the Clinton tax rates on the top 2%

    End all the abusive tax loopholes that allow many, if not most corporations to pay little to no taxes.

    End Afghanistan now

    Slash military spending in half (or more)

    Legalize marijuana

    Abolish the DHS
