The true enemy of progress that everyone wants is complication.
People do not like complication. Governments only like complication. Red tape just add headaches.
If the people truly OWN the government, then take it over!!
In the same vein that we love simplification, we also are a compassionate people. We will show compassion when people face hardship and can make an effort, and when there is no alternative but to provide care for someone, who is unable to care for themselves.
I want to address every issue form transportation to healthcare to defense. Wiki started the online encyclopedia as a document that is living and could be changed. In pretty much the same way, I want to discuss ways to simplify complex problems, and believe there are solutions to every problem we face. i want people to join me. So I am asking readers to provide solutions that break down the problems to it most simple terms, and provide simple answers to those problems.
Simplification is a steady solid comfort that people crave. It provides a worry-less foundation to be able to free thoughts to move forward. Simplification leads to systems that take care of truly the majority, and allow the minority of that fall through the cracks to address concerns to that majority, for adequate resolution. The more we simplify, the less will fall through the cracks.
What is needed and what is NOT!!
As a people what can be realistically cut and what can not???
My thoughts will be based on the wiki budget submitted by the White House!!
And it is beyond time, with more to come through analysis!
$18.7 billion (+5.1%) – National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Reduce to only an administrative oversight role between the department of defense and commerce of both military public and commerce private sectors.
There is not another planet in our solar system that is inhabit-able, and should be cut to focus only on defense of the nation and commerce for communications. This is a luxury fun funding that has over stayed its usefulness. Any comments or debris getting ready to bump or destroy the earth as we know it can be observed by our military. The budget is not transferable, but programs currently running should be maintained under the military or private sector.
This is just taking away monies that can increase the values of human life here on earth. We are here!!! Period!
$46.7 billion (+12.8%) – Department of Education
This is a travesty and a lie, and should be reduced and funds dispersed back to the states evenly with only an administrative role for oversight and coordination, with the focus being on “Who America is”, and “how we were founded” based on our history as a people, and performance standards in Reading Math and Science on strictly an educational level and eliminate the politics.
Americans are being double and triple, and quadruple taxed for this and it is an outrage. Monies being raised, which can be kept within each state, would allow more functional purposes such as hiring more teachers and reducing class sizes and expanding schools within neighborhoods. Anti consolidation.
This one agency is responsible for pricing education out of reach of the individuals of the states and is sucking up for too much in financial resources. They do not regulate text books, school boards, or standards in teaching licensing. Standard testing does not cost 46 Billion dollars!
$10.5 billion (+34.6%) – Environmental Protection Agency
Each State has environmental protection, it should be reduced to coordination and oversight period and should come under the department of the interior. We know what is hazardous to our lives and what benefits our lives and as just and this is absolute a waste of taxpayer money and a bureaucracy!! Monies should be dispersed back to the states to clean up their mess.
$1.1 billion (+22.2%) – Corporation for National and Community Service
Volunteerism should be on the local and state level and monies funded back to the states to coordinate it on those levels. PERIOD ! Charitable organizations handle volunteerism and should continue to do so!
$19.8 billion (+3.7%) – Other Agencies What other agencies…. Eliminate what is not needed and keep the absolute necessary ones. If it is under discretionary, most likely they are duplicate services provided at the state level. Disperse back to the state and eliminate.
$5.0 billion (+100%) – National Infrastructure Bank Monies not eliminated but moved to :
Put under the Corps of Engineers to give them the funding necessary to develope , improve , upgrade, coordinate our infrastructure nationwide in communication, power, transportation, protection.
This cuts nearly 96.8 Billion form the budget that is just unnecessary or duplicate from the state level.
Put these monies back at the state level but maintain oversight, coordination.
Revise our tax system to it simplest core!
Under 20K on an individual, no taxes!
If your not making the above as a single individual you are not living at a standard that should be taxed.
10 % on all peoples!
25% on all business, public and private!
Regulate Charities to a strict administrative costs with collected monies going strictly to the purpose they propose to support.! Non-political activity only.
Red tape is choking the American life and dream!
