We should rid ourselves of redundant Federal Bureaucracies...and use the money more wisely.

Any department that is mirrored by a state level department is redundant and should be dismantled, starting with the Department of Education.

I'm sure once upon a time this agency was established with the best intentions...but now it's time to return these duties and responsibilities back to the States.

We should be using these wasted funds for something NOT redundant. Perhaps a federally funded Innocence Project that reviews the cases of convicted criminals to combat miscarriages of justice like this one...


But money is not unlimited. We need to end redundancy and put part of the savings to better use.

If anything, we need more federal investment in the states, not less. There are plenty of federal redundancies that we can get rid of. Space Force for one.

Wrong.

How about we cut defense spending from 800-900 billion down to 200 billion and use that 600-700 billion to invest in our people?

There is a compromise to be made here. I am open to reducing defense spending. Perhaps not to those levels...but a significant reduction. In conjunction with getting rid of these redundant bureaucracies.

Why? Why not just cut spending, reduce the money flowing from the states to the government? What is the purpose of the states sending money to the government, only to have the government turn around and give it back to the states? That’s an inefficient way of doing it.
Just let the states keep their money.

The space force is actually a good idea. First you have to get the image of Star Wars out of your mind and see that, having an organization to monitor and protect our interests in that frontier isn’t a bad thing.

There’s a lot going on up there…seems feasible to have a military branch dedicated to keeping our interests up there secure, isn’t it?

The executive branch of government is a corporation with branch offices. There is no redundancy.
 
You can "invest in our people" by letting them keep what they earn in the first place.
Hard for the Government to 'redistribute the wealth' if they can't get their hands on it first.

But...before the government gives it back...we need to use it to reduce the national debt. At least for a while.
 
China spends less than 200 billion on their military. That is the second largest expenditure for military in the world. So then if we spend 200 milion we beat that and we still have money to invest in our citizens.
 
Wrong.

Could you do that and not sacrifice training, equipment, advancement in technology? In other words, we pay a price for having the best and most highly trained military with the best equipment. If we reduced our spending, would we be able to maintain that kind of standard?
 
What does the federal department of education do that can't be handled by the state level department of education?
There needs to be national standards for education. Fuck that states rights garbage. It didn't work and created Jim Crow, so it is not something we should try to start again.

Easy....Send the two aircraft carriers currently under construction to the breakers, quit buying crappy weapons systems that none of the generals have asked for, and cut the MIC lobbying corps by about 99%.
