    It will probably have some unwelcome changes, though.

    It'll probably cost $1.5 trillion to execute all these changes and up-grades.

    How do we know that there will be any real improvements? We don't. Do we? So, you want the American tax payer to spend untold millions to line the pockets of these CEO's, to make upgrades that may not even work?

    You do it all the time with the military, so what difference does it make? Unlike the military, if this is done right (not that I expect it to be done right), then it could save you a bucket load of money that you then could waste on your military.

    Point is saying that the idea is stupid because of your idiotic political system, does not mean the idea is actually stupid. Just means your political system is corrupt up to its eyeballs.

    Cutting the size of the beuracracy would be quicker, easier and cheaper.

    The great thing about ERP systems is that you will always be adopting them.

    Until we kill a couple of people and smash things, I'm fine with being a pessimist with IT. It is usually the recommended route.
