[quote=investorzzo]I think your forgetting one of our biggist problems is defense spending around the world. We cannot sustain the Roman empire we have created. We need to close bases, remove troops from battle zones and stop the endless black hole of secret military projects. Of course we need to rein in domestic spending. Of course none of this will happend until we get campaign reform and kick out all the lobbyists. They will not give up their profits in areas like drugs, medical, military programs, as they continue to spend for the candidates new elections. The only way this will happen is when the American people demand it or vote out the present two party system. That is if there is a fair voting system still?[/quote]

Military spending takes 1/3 of the budget while the welfare state takes 2/3’s.  Still, I agree with you.  We have become the Roman empire and both welfare spending and military spending need to be decimated if we are to have any chance of surviving.  If I was a booky at Vegas, I would be happy to give 1:100 odds on that.  Our system is broken.  The lobbyists have "won".  I look forward to collapse because that is what it will take for us to regain control of our own country.
