Our slavemasters are socialists. BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM. THEY need to feel pain.
DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic. DISMANTLE their domestic collectives. DEFUND their collectives, foreign and domestic. UNaccountable bureaucrats are socialists.
“Socialism Is Legal Plunder.” - Frederic Bastiat 1801-1850
Lets see...where could YOU cut???...
STOP the clock...
REVERSE the clock. Without raising taxes, a surplus clock should be ticking and then current taxes lowered accordingly and dramatically, without representatives taking any pay or having any perks, retirement, insurance, etc., etc.
The present-day delusion is an attempt to enrich everyone at the expense of everyone else; to make plunder universal under the pretense of organizing it. - Bastiat
It is impossible to introduce into society a greater change and a greater evil than this: the conversion of the law into an instrument of plunder. - Bastiat
.That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

to purchase a little Temporary Safety,
deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
Well if there are no solutions that have no pain then how come every four years the new challenger to the current Santa in Chief tells us there are?
Obama, McCain, Romney, ...(although Trump beat them all)
they all said it is easy : just cut a few taxes(or raise them), create some green jobs(or drill), cut a few regulations(or add them) , lower interest rates, bailout a few banks(then regulate them), maybe add few import tarriffs, reform entitlements ("who cares if I have to work till 75 and there are few jobs now ???, thats 25 years away and there will be lots of jobs for me then, problem solved, no pain") .. and shazzam, we are on easy street.
This Santa beat them all:

I desire a multicolored unicorn that sh!ts solid gold Skittles, too. Free, of course.
Last night I was at a fundraiser that was all about UNICEF. My step kids suggested that I give $100. I asked if it was OK if we all went together and donated $33 and I would take it out of their Xmas gift allowance. The excitement was somewhat less over that idea.
Absolutely no difference in that and the budget situation.
