    At least 25% in the military. Proabble more in some other areas. A few areas are pretty lean already.

    You’re not going to get your 50 independent countries – regardless how many times you click your heels together.

    I think the amount might be staggering....It might be better we don't know.I have heard a few things over the years that were easy to laugh at.But the waste and mismanagement is probably off the charts.And the Libs want more and more government involvement.And of course more and more taxes and more and more spending.The left is constantly crying that the economy is in such bad shape because of the Bush tax cuts...They act as if it was the governments money that was taken away and needs to be repaid...why haven't they adjusted their spending to make up for that loss of revenue.Let's understand it's not the governments money first...

    Sorry bout that,


    1. I wonder if the US Government doesn't have *two books*?
    2. One with the 14 trillion dollar debt, and the real *book*, where we are actually in debt 950 trillion dollars.
    3. Ever wonder if this is possible?:confused:

    Not only is that irrelevant to the topic, it is a complete strawman because I never said that. Please think with your brain, not your ass. :cool:

    I come in around 30%. Just a SWAG really, and it depends on how you define waste. There's entire depts that could be dropped IMHO.
