They could legalise Marijuana tax it to make money. And will save money from not arresting or incarcerating weed offenders. What do you think the percentage of law makers now smoke or have smoked weed in the past? I would think do smoke now 40% have smoked in the past  85%   Any other ideas???

Just an idea....but what if every government worker's salary was cut by $100.00?  There has to be thousands of government workers from the post office to the President.

$100 wouldn't phase them.  I imagine they wouldn't miss $1000 either, but just the scope of dollars that could be saved if every government worker "gave up" a little could be Huge.

Perhaps they could cut down on the amount every retired government worker receives too....
in my humble opinion

Would stopping greed and corruption be asking too much?  It would be hard to change human nature but it could start if everyone would stop being so selfish and work for the greater good of everyone.

I agree completely.  When you go to a concert...you don't hear the trumpet.. you hear the band. And if you DO hear the trumpet...then the trumpet is not working toward the greater good.  We should all love the sound of of the band as a whole better than the toot of our own horn.

The entire system needs an overhaul.  As time goes on people are becoming more aware of how much things have deteriorated or were never that great to begin with.  There is more transparency these days.  The house and the senate need to work for the Americans instead of themselves. Not all members of Government are guilty of this, but there are far too many that are.  Some of the members of congress are just big spoiled babies.

I think that more and more people are becoming concerned and unhappy with our Government.  I know I am, and to me, it has nothing to do with being a Republican or a Democrat.  It's just poor all around and needs serious improvement.

When cops make a marijuana bust, its a bunch of stoned people sitting around watching cartoons.

But on a daily basis they get called for a domestic disturbance because some drunk guy is beating his wife.

Give me ONE REASON that marijuana should be kept illegal that couldn't also apply to cigarettes and tobacco.

Legalize weed.  And I don't mean just decriminalize it.  I should be able to walk into a 7-11 and buy a bag of weed the same way I can buy a pouch of tobacco.

While we're at it, lower the drinking age to 18.

Why would we only want to cut down the salaries of only government positions?  Why not ask every American to give up $100 from their paycheck to bankroll other pork funds and such?  When they take the money of the taxpayer, it seems to end up in another pocket.  

While we are asking for a reduction in pay, why not ask people that are sucking the welfare system dry to get off of welfare after two years?  How about those that are living off of unemployment but are perfectly capable of working at the burger joint but refuse because they feel entitled to a little government payment for several months?  Let's take it just one step further and ask people to reduce their caloric intake as to reduce their need for medical intervention later in life and ultimately reduce the need for disability payments because of diabetes or hypertension that could have been managed through an active lifestyle filled with an appropriate diet?

These are as valid contributions and reductions as are any others but most people will NOT take the responsibility of "self" to become less of a burden to a community or nation.  The bottom line is that all people need to become responsible from the points of view of diet, exercise, budget management and self worth.  We need to find the pride that was displayed when this country was founded and relive the principles of JFK when he stated "Ask not what our country can do for us but what we can do for our country".

Not only should the salaries of the elected officials and their "appointed"  cronies be cut, but welfare should be eliminated, as well as all the other programs that support some people at the expense of others (the ones that actually work for a living). The corruption would be eliminated of our "representatives" weren't getting outrageous saleries, because if the positions were not so lucrative, only the people that actually wanted to serve our country would run for office.

:BangHead:Ever since school when we had to read the Declaraction of Independence I realized right then and there that WE THE PEOPLE referred to the President and the Congressional Office.  The government official's make the laws to benefit more money in their pockets and no regards for the citizens themselves.    As long as there is a President and the Congressional office the citizens will always get screwed over.

Stop wasteful spending on projects that fail
Cut top positions pay by 50%-75%
The system is messed up. Maybe there needs to be a government reform.

The Government would do better if they charged more for exports, and stop giving free loans to people who come over here from India, to start a bussiness where they can rip us Americans off.
