Stop wasting billions and billions of dollars in Afghanistan and

1. Set a maximum total amount to expend considering the deficit situation of US and that these two wars have been one of the main reasons of the huge increase of the US debt. 2 Set reasonable and attainable goals. I do not think US can change the cultural values of another country by throwing money and getting in a debt hole. 3. Stop throwing money to Afghan people and Iraqis that are inept or corrupt or have a different... more »

Kill people and break things

In Air Force Basic Training, we had an Officer remind us that the job of the military is to kill people and break things. It sounds harsh, but it's what we do best. However, that's not what the military is being used for. For example, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been dragging on for years, costing the taxpayers tremendous amounts of money. Much of that money (not to mention many American lives) could have... more »

Bring Back Troops

Keeping troops in Iraq costs billions. The country should stand on its own. Supposedly friendly countries in the region can defend themselves. The U.S. is not the police department for the world.

 

It's a lost cause to keep troops in Afghanistan. The religious influence is too strong and the people's beliefs won't be changed. It's been proven many times that a religious war cannot be won.

End the war on drugs

The war on drugs has been a failure that has lasted far too long and has cost this nation far too much, a cost measured in dollars and in lives. Ending the war on drugs and subsequent legalization would create a domestic industry, and with it, jobs and tax revenue. It would also alleviate the astronomical spending necessary for enforcement and the subsequent incarceration of violations and violators of respective policies... more »

Simple idea

Being that about 50% of the annual budget is military spending, how about we start by cutting that piece in half. Let the rest of the world police itself. We have a military for the purpose of DEFENDING OUR COUNTRY, not the other questionable purposes for which it is being used.

Common Sense

Hmm, how to save money? Hey, I have an idea: let's try "living" within/below our means. For starters, how about we cut off foreign aid, both to foreign countries as well as to foreign nationals who come to this country for the purpose of taking advantage of our very lax and very stupid immigration and public social services policies. Why are we taking care of the citizens of other countries while neglecting or even... more »
