They want cuts- Let's make a list of acceptable cuts- Oil Subsidies (DUH!)

How can they possibly justify that one?


They love to talk about protecting the Constitution

Let's stop paying for them to illegally spy on us and violate our Bill of Rights.

Let's cut the TSA and allow the airlines to do their own security, and without the porn/radiation or being groped.


They talk about freedom and their guns...

Let's end the Drug War

3. very important one

 


The private sector is not saving us money, they have absolutely no justification for this.

A real conservative would never support overpaid mercenaries.

2. I wouldn't cut that, I'd transfer it

every penny currently spent on oil subsidies spent on subsidising renewable and carbon-neutral energy instead.

12. But then a Republican will get in there and take the money, tank the company and blame a Democrat...

5. Cut the funding going to Limbaugh on Armed Forces Radio

 


Cut all government funded ads on TV and radio.

Our tax dollars should not go to pay for right wing liars to stay on the air.

8. Cutting back the military in nations no longer our enemies would save buckets

of money, not to mention the cost of making obsolete military hardware and weapons. They could really slash the military budget and could probably improve on veterans benefits in the process.

Stop the federal grants to give drones and military equipment to police departments.

End the damned proxy drone wars.

Get rid of the Department of Homeland Security.

19. Do millionaire/billionaires still get a hefty tax break on plane fuel?

We could cut that. If you can afford an effin' plane, you can afford to pay the full cost of fuel.
