I just read the comment about reducing the deficit through eliminating war.
Better yet, Let’s start to save America!!
Issue an immediate recall of all military personnel and Civilian servants and notify those Governments we will no longer finance their battle, since we need to fix our home first. Then, refuse to finance any more conflicts – If someone needs our help, they need to pay up front for our Military might – with NO financial reconstruction or free materials provided. We cannot protect the Home front if we cannot afford our own Security, which we cannot. Foreign Countries will have to pay the bill and then we can use the money we save by fixing out own economy and country. Every day, more and more Americans are getting shafted by higher taxes and less gainful work, in addition to the extreme cost of an education. Pour some of those Billions into the Education system and Immediately remove ALL incentives and tax breaks for offshore moving companies, as well as an additional Tax on those companies who take our jobs overseas to poor countries. What good does it do to support poor countries if we are Bankrupting our own in the process?
Next, remove the Political pension structure and reduce their pay by 75%, and make them join the pool we all have to lay in – if that doesn’t get these Politicians in line with the public, then remove them from office WITHOUT RETIREMENT OR FREE MEDICAL!!! What happens if you work a job 15 years then get laid off? Do you still get a pension? NO!!! Why do they? They are the most OVERPAID people in the country – and the ones doing the most damage!! We are so over governed that we, the PEOPLE, ARE DROWNING in their generosity!!! I can’t even find a job to support my kids because of an amazingly high unemployment rate in my county – what help do I have? There’s work elsewhere, but I don’t have the money to relocate, so what should I do according to the politicians? DROWN?Yah – thanks for supporting an Honorably Discharged Veteran guys!! I served fully and faithfully in the Army – just to get booed and accused ( not officially) of being the bad guy. I wasn’t injured so I have no rights – the Government says I should just take my kids and go lay in the gutter, while they spend more and more everyday protecting their Foreign Interests? What about OUR DOMESTIC INTERESTS? Since when do Americans no longer count in the grand scheme of things? Instead of foreign Governments ticking off their neighbors and yelling for us to beat them up ( then rebuild both countries better than our own is built) Make them pay for our services – and lives – and they will quit acting so moronically. We can’t save the World as we kill ourselves – where’s the sense in that?
