Run All the Democrats and Republicans Out of DC 'Black Budget' Revealed: A Detailed Look at US 'Espionage Empire' http://www.commondreams.org/headline/2013/08/29-4 Comment: ASimpleMan000 • 10 hours ago A few random thoughts. 1. Disbanding the empire and cutting the military spending from $850B+ to $150B gives us $600B in savings. Eliminate the Black budget will bump the savings up to $650B+ per year-- available to be used for the benefits of the people. 2. Replace the HMO welfare Act with Medicare for all give us a better and more efficient medical care system. 3. Letting the TBTF banks go under will eliminate much of the financial predation by these vampires on the rest of the economy. 4. Close down the Federal Reserve and return its functions to the government will eliminate the unnecessary debt-based nature of credit and money creation and the fed-induced violent economic waves of boom and bust. 5. Institute free rationing of TV time for political ads plus outlaw lobbying and revolving-doors should help clean up the current political mess. 6. Giving voters powers similar to the Swiss-style referendum and initiatives on the federal level will provide effective checks on major political and judicial abuses. No more unpopular wars; no more unconstitutional spying; no more TPP or NAFTA; no more bank bailouts; no more war on smoking herbs; no more subsidized job outsourcing; veto the nomination of Larry S.; overturn Corporate personhood; recall selected supremes; ... We may even start preparing for the coming climate disaster! Life could be so much better for the 99%!
