As for Lawmakers and their pay? Well I say we give them one small lump sum when they're elected, no monthly pay whatever, and the balance of payment at the end of their term. My reasoning with that is that, if they are tossed out or voted out, we've saved a bunch of money. If they prove to be, not the person we wanted, we've saved money. And since money is their driving force, they'll wanna try and earn that end of term lump sum.

Lots of folks forget that Government works 'for' us, we don't work for them. But, when you're sending in better than 20percent of your income, they get to thinking you are, working for them.. (no pun)

That's right, bring all the troops home, cutting the Defense spending budget is the goal there.. Right, yeah.. Hey! The next time your neighbors get in a fight over the garbage in their house and get to beating up on each other.. Well, just have the Cops 'phone' them up and tell them to "Knock it off!" - Basically that's what our Military presence in the world will be when the smoke settles. As for one country having enough military to defend itself? well, we'll join the ranks of those who do not.. And, well.. take our chances on being invaded by a country like China or North Korea - Right? Yay! for cutting our Defense Spending..
