    For starters:

    Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Homeland Security; FCC, US Postal Service.

    (Now watch, some drooling obamabot will say "cut the education department? how come republicans don't like education?", etc :lol:)

    How much would elimination of those actually save the government, Pat?

    I think Homeland Security's budget dwarfs the other five combined, doesn't it?

    The issue of government isn't just taxation, but interference in people's live, or favors for the politically connected - that was the thrust of the OP.

    This is a good question. Since the moratorium on earmarks in 2009, the allocations appear to be low. That being said, I always think this is fat to trim in earmarks.

    The military. Abolish it and make a public speech that any nation fucking around gets immediately nuked off the map.Budget solved, worlds problems solved. Now. What to do with close to a million meatheads with zero skills usable in the public sector ? Load them up and sick them on murkas vast array of gangs.
