2. pipe dream


"Cut the price of FDA drugs or go generic earlier "

The politicians are in the back pockets of pharmaceutical companies

"Withdraw immediately from Afghanistan - saving $100bn+ on current war costs."

That's not going to happen for a number of reasons

"Stop ALL foreign aid"

Again not going to happen

"Stop the phoney war on drugs and save $200bn p.a. and have a MASSIVE reduction in crime and corruption"

Not going to happen because it's about money being made for the government , police depts , DEA etc.....

"Bring back the 138,000 military that are currently stationed in Germany, Japan, South Korea, Italy & UK. Let them pay for their own defense"

Maybe if Ron Paul won but that's not going to happen

"Stop ALL corporate welfare and subsidies"

Good luck with that with lobbyists controlling Washington , especially the Agriculture industry.
