    The government should not subsidize anything, period. Cut all food subsidies and save some money.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I dont know...Im no brainiac...but it seems to me that the way our country keeps most of its people from falling into vicious violent dispair is what always separated the United States from all other countries...that have constant turmoil and mass killings and overthrows. My uneducated opinion is that our govts laws and protections have safeguarded us from being a Libya or Syria or Rhawonda and the like.
    Ive been listening to all the new and very recent complaints about govt...and it all seems to boil down to two things....The few that still have jobs that pay well and the veryvery few that are in position to take advantage of every single thing our govt provides for them...The ability to outsource, GOVT laws that allow tax havens and allow them to make obscene profits at the expense of everyone else....say they hate the govt the most...and dont believe anyone else but those that "HAVE" have a right to anything. I dont buy all that
