    Clearly we need all these functions of government. Also clearly there is waste in government. What we need are realistic proposals for streamlining and efficiency, not braindead demands for the elimination of government.

    Hell yeah! Down in the Third World we've got none of that shit, and look just HOW WELL we've been doing all this time! From now on I will whole-heartedly support Conservatives, because they really want to bridge the gap between our levels of development. :lol:

    Hmmm... seems like something the STATE would want to do, now wouldn't it... seems like a bit of waste for the Fed, eh??

    Tons of things (and agencies, and departments) big and little.. that is completely wasteful and unnecessary spending by our Federal Government

    Streamlining and efficiency, like...

    Department of Commerce, National Parks, and Hurricanes
    Department of Agriculture, Medicaid, and Border Patrol
    Veterans, Food, Drug, Environmental Protection, and Government Accountability Agency

    That sounds like a great idea!
