    I'd decriminalize and tax marijuana.

    I'd create a national lottery.

    I'd sell naming rights to national monuments. i.e., The Lincoln Memorial brought to you by Roca wear.

    You beat me to this one! One of the mostly overlooked items of the Great Depression is the legalization of alcohol. Unlike pouring money into the "green" industry that is still very immature, Marijuana is a ready industry that could be implemented almost immediately. As unpopular as it's become to smoke cigarettes in the US i'll bet a lot of equipment for making Mari cigs is sittings around unused right now. In addition, it's a popular product that already has a market.
    From the ashes.

    They can get jobs, go to Salvation army or some other charity,donate plasma, go to soup kitchens, seek the aid of relatives, and many other things. If its just a reduction in benefits then they can simply eat cheaper food,several packs of ramen cost a dollar, you can get two or three boxes of macaroni for a dollar, instead of Oscar-Myer hotdogs you can get Rodeo or Bar-S brand, instead of Del-monte canned vegetables you can get Always Save, Best Choice or some other generic brand. As I said before I am not for the complete elimination of welfare and food stamps as long as it is a helping hand and not a hand out.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Cut off every nation that is getting money from us. American money should be spent on America for basic essentials like law enforcement, infrastructure, military/military operations and etc. And we have a national debt, so it definitely doesn't make any sense to be giving money away like it grows on trees. If you owe money it doesn't make sense to be giving it away when you have essentials to worry about and a debt to pay off. Israel is a our ally and I think they are right in invading the Gaza strip and not letting human shields stop them from attacking the enemy but financially wide they should be on their own.However I do not give a **** if there are Israelis with dual American and Israeli citizenship,our government needs to stop this nonsense of dual citizenship and force them to pick which country they want to be part of and live there. As Teddy Roosevelt once said "Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all."
    ok, I was just asking

    We have state lotteries. (Where you buy a group of numbers and hope they are picked in order to win money)

    I spend my money very well, thank you for asking.

    I have to chuckle at the liberals who say they would drastically reduce government spending.

    I would make it a requirement to eat raw beef in order to get a check from the government. 1/2 pound, whatever cut you want, for each check.

    This would drastically reduce the number of people willing to make a career out of government service, and would ensure that most who ARE willing to do so are RealMen (tm)
