Spin off Public Enterprises (USPS, Amtrak, etc.)

These entities are guzzlers of federal dollars, yet, they continually are in the red and are not effectively managed. Sell them off to the private sector. Let's have a better, more reliable public transportation system (like European trains) and therefore get more people riding them and off the road (thereby saving gas, reducing pollution, etc.)

Department of Defense

Eliminate Single-Service Schools

Most disciplines are similar/common to all services (finance, communications, etc...) yet the services each maintain their own schools to train their people. Consolidate these functions under the National Defense University and create a single DoD educational asset. Closing down redundant schools would save countless dollars and allow larger consolidated facilities to realize the economic savings of scale.
