I agree completely.. I like where your head's at, especially in the last paragraph. I don't think many people realize how much we could save if the bureaucratic budgets alone in this country were slashed by a significant %. My understanding is that federal agencies are under the executive branch, even though Congress funds them.. so a President could simply make personnel cuts, or shut down an agency and leave it in the hands of Congress to continue to fund an agency that has been downsized or cut/assimilated completely. That would expose a lot of the power hungry whores in Congress and force them to do the right thing. We need a kamikaze one term repub President who is willing to do things like this without any regard for re-election. the results will speak for themselves.
