    This is what it looks like when someone puts up a serious plan with numbers to back up their positions.

    This link is to just a general news story, this is a simplistic breakdown of the plan:
    Ron Paul proposes saving $1T by scrapping five federal departments - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

    This link is to actual graphs, numbers, charts and whatever you could ever want provided to understand how the plan will achieve its said goal: http://c3244172.r72.cf0.rackcdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/RestoreAmericaPlan.pdf

    Looks good to me, looking forward to seeing if the plan is legit.

    There is a lot of information provided so I fully understand if this thread does not get much trafic, lol.

    I could get behind something like this. though i think cutting the government back to at least 2002 levels would be better.

    I'm okay with cutting back those dep'ts and maybe eventually eliminating them, but not all at once. I'd be gradually cutting back over time to get there rather than in one year cuz it could really hurt the economy enough to put us into another recession.

    I think one of RP’s weakest points is he has never had a 4 year plan. The media and debates watch RP implode because they ask him questions about what he believes or what he would like to see done under certain circumstances knowing people will think “HOL FUCKING SHIT.”

    I’m very happy to see Paul put down a workable plan in 4 years, I hope he sticks to it.

    Not sure if you're trying to make fun of people that would say something like that or if you really mean it...

    Open the links and read, I know it's not as catchy as other plans but sometimes plans involve planning.

    I meant for most posters and voters. I know you give people a shot, even if you're not sold on them, one of the reasons I respect you as a poster here.
