Defund DHS and the (EVIL) TSA as well, and you’ve got a deal!;)
Heres the list of 18 patriots who voted for Pauls budget:
These are the only Americans left in the Senate. They should form a THRID PARTY, because the rest are LIARS AND THIEVES.
We'd stay out of wars if it would be feasible. Nation building... why? War is fought to destroy the enemy. Domestic recessions... With taxes lowered enough, restrictions lowered enough, as much red tape as humanly possible is cut, there won't be another recession for a long, long time.
Rand is really impressing me.
Nuke it. The market doesn't need some centralized beast to handle these issues. Let the free market supply and demand handle it.
Most of the other cabinet departments need to go also, especially HEW that wastes the equivalent of the annual economy of the world's sixth largest country.
RE: Easy, less taxes means more jobs, a growing economy.
Sure, but you still need to defend the country, and fund our Justice System ( both constitutional ).
How do you do it without tax collectors?
The DOE doesn’t have to be involved in National Defense. This is really a relic of the cold war and Eisenhower’s Atoms for Peace initiative. I am pretty no other country with nukes has them has their department of energy inovlved. Trust me, there isn’t any DOE reps on an SSBN.
Yet again, Coats of Indiana voted against his constituants wants/wishes. Time to get rid of him like we got rid of Loser Lugar.
Wondering why he couldn’t drag some of his fellow RINOs along with him?
And we had all of those things long before we had a Department of Energy. All of those necessary functions can be pulled out and established as their own seperate agencies as they were for decades before the DoE monster was created.
One, Coats, is a political appointee by the GOP who was asked to run by the GOP instead of giving the process a chance to run it's normal course (wasn't he living somewhere in the south before being asked to run?) and let others throughout the state compete for the seat.
The other won because, well, I'm not really sure why he won. There are many theories why Donnelly beat, geez, what was his name, oh yeah, Mourdock, but Donnelly beat a candidate whom the GOP establishment refused to help. I see that as the overall reason why he lost.
Yeah, Dumb and Dumber, because there is no distinction between the two. They are almost exactly the same.
And yet we still keep hearing, Here of all places, that libertarians should get lost, go away, they’re just Occutards.
The fact that it got voted down in flames just means we need more statesmen like Rand Paul rather than more RINOs like we’ve got, because at least Our RINOs are Republican cretins rather than Democrat cretins.
And who is planning on a filibuster of gun control in the Senate?
The same libertarian senators - Paul and Cruz.
Where are the oh-so-stalwart Republican “conservatives” on the issue? Oh, like John McCain? Selling us out, that’s where they are.
LOL...like Corny Cornyn?! He's sidled up so close to Cruz that he's being confused with Cruz' shadow.
All four of these departments are much beloved by the American people, who consider them all essential. The people aren’t willing to cut anything, or they wouldn’t nominate and elect the useless politicians they do.
where could i find this list?
Beats the heck out of that stupid Ryan budget
The Flat Tax MUST NOT HAVE and “pre-bates”
That is a horror story in the making. If they give ANY pre-bates Democraps will be falling all over themselves to see who can promise a bigger pre-bate. There is no way that ever goes DOWN.
I could be persuaded to have a flat tax of any income OVER the poverty level, but even that will be kicking and screaming
I dont think my original comments are in disagreement with your comment
Believe me I understand better than most the DOE’s involvement with the military, but my point is that a civilian agency’s involvement was a political decision by the Eisenhower administration. There is no reason that any of those military related roles could not be reassigned to DoD.
...Except that in some cases it is easier to secure funding for something when you are not already defending a 700 billion dollar budget.
No prebate is necessary if no tax is collected on the basics.
The tax could be collected at point of sale, and even the "underground economy" would pay up on items legally purchased.
Move the other departments out of DC. Scatter them.
