  1. Start by cutting and or eliminating almost every federal department or agency. Its laughable how many there are. https://www.usa.gov/agency-index If countries want us to have a military base for our protection they cover 100% of the costs. Stop giving military aide out period. They want they pay/borrow for it. We should be able to cut the military by 1/4-1/2. A true and extensive audit of the US military. Hire a private firm that is paid based on waste they discover. Balanced budget amendment that kicks all members of congress out when certain borrowing/spending thresholds are met. By kicking out I mean after term is up making them permanently ineligible to run for fed public office. Massive reduction is subsidies for ALL industries. Massive crackdown on fraud in social programs. A true and extensive audit of the Federal Reserve. Complete closure of the border and massive restriction on the immigration system. If you have little to no skills then you can't come in. This includes massive deportation of people that came illegally or under weakened asylum rules. Force drug companies to sell medications for one price worldwide. Not $10 for Europe and $500 for the US. Same for medical equipment companies. This would be a good start.
  2. Most liberal Pontiff in decades and he used the word "faggotness." Never intended to express himself in homophobic terms. Priceless. They do it then lie about it. https://www.oann.com/newsroom/pope-francis-apologizes-for-using-gay-slur-to-refer-to-lgbtq-community/ On Monday, Italian media outlets had quoted unnamed bishops in their reporting, saying that Pope Francis jokingly used the term “faggotness” while speaking in Italian during a bishops conference. He reportedly used the term while discussing the Vatican’s ban on gay men entering seminaries, or those attempting to become ordained priests. The pope expressed that homosexual men should not be allowed to train as priests even if they pledge to remain celibate. Many suspect that a major reason this topic was being brought up is due to the influx of child sexual assault lawsuits being brought forth against members of the Catholic church. Meanwhile, Matteo Bruni, the director of the Holy See Press Office, issued a statement acknowledging criticism from the LGBTQ+ community, and discussing the comments that were delivered behind closed doors to Italian bishops on May 20th. The comments were first reported on the Italian tabloid website Dagospia.
  3. Candidates yes....his policies no. Trump has plenty of good policy positions. Dude is as far left or farther than Biden on some issues. They just made the party permanently inconsequential.
  4. Which statement and how do you come up with I have a dislike for MC or main street? I don't want anyone's taxes raised except for those that don't pay any. I think everyone who makes an income should have some skin in the game and pay something. I fully support tax cuts beyond the Trump cuts. I also support any plan that cuts fed govt spending by as much as 50%.
  5. Have you seen the Libertarian candidate platform?
  6. Poor celebrities worried about their million dollar jobs. What about the average working man losing their jobs to automation or AI? https://finance.yahoo.com/news/washington-pushes-for-new-ai-rules-protecting-artists-as-hollywood-backlash-mounts-080019112.html Senators are pushing to introduce a bill as early as June that would set rules governing the use of artificial intelligence in the music and movie industries, an effort that coincides with new AI tensions roiling Hollywood. The NO FAKES Act — which stands for Nurture Originals, Foster Art, and Keep Entertainment Safe — is a bipartisan proposal that would stop individuals or companies from using AI to produce an unauthorized digital replica of their likeness or their voice.
  7. What's stopping you from gifting the govt more money? Never seen someone so eager for higher taxes yet unwilling to simply give on their own.
  8. Sure but you are kidding yourself it that the only part of the decision process.
  9. If these are so great post that you are getting the latest one. Not that you aren't afraid to get it but you are actually getting it.
  10. While I'm not disagreeing with you the problem becomes many people do not have the savings or estate to pay for care with more highly paid staff. That staff also requires specialized training especially when dealing with Alzheimer's and Dementia patients. Its going to get really bad the next 10-15 years.
  11. And this is why we are at stage 7. Not a large part of the country but enough to change elections. Hate to break it to you but there is no saving America. All we can do is keep it alive for as long as possible. Do as much as you can to keep as much as you can. For me in most cases that's voting R for now. Have to think of yourself as a soldier so to speak. They really can't do their job unless they realize to some extent they are already dead. America is the same way....dying and I'm just going to keep as much of what I earned (legally) as I can.
