Here's my position, which I find to be the most reasonable of the methods by which to cut government spending:

Start cutting benefits for the rich, and taxes for the poor, and work your way to the middle.

I approve. Of course the rich will keep their tax cuts and poor will continue to get squeezed in this plutocracy masked in democratic facade. Too bad there isn't a Clinton Jr. that can come back in office to undo what Bush Jr. did.

Start cutting benefits for the rich, and taxes for the poor, and work your way to the middle.

But, since the rich don't care about benefits and the poor don't pay taxes anyways, what happens instead is the middle class gets taxed to pay the rich to provide "services" to the poor that end up making them worse off.

If the US stopped using the "defense" money to conquer everyone else, I think lots of money would be freed to pay the debt.

I would personally appreciate it, you know, I know many people that miss people that got snagged by the CIA during the cold war (and I am not kidding, this is VERY literal... And I know a person that got returned because the colonel at the police station knew her and accepted her explanation that her russian language studies was only for anthropology purposes, considering she was a anthropologist...)

Or the blackwater incident (some Brazillian soldiers found some Blackwater soldiers in the middle of Amazon Rainforest... sadly, our stupid laws favored Blackwater, our soldiers had to retreat and ask judicial permission to cross that place O.o   I wonder what stupid lawmaker make the country own army have to ask permission to a judge to cross its own territory when in presence of a potential enemy...)
