You have way too much time on your hands, too much d**n time! Wish I could sit around all day and think of programs to hate on, I'm sure to people who use those programs- they are important.

This can't be a serious question. It must be nice to be so wealthy and secure that you need no help from anyone and to be so sure you never will. Try using a little of that money to by some compassion for your fellow man, why don't you. Thanks for the points.

No. They do very good work.

Most of them. Not all, but most. Most of them sound like just a bunch of bureaucrats pushing papers around without much consequence.

You forgot the DEA and ATF
Answered By: N - 3/9/2010
Yes, yes, and yes. None of them should currently exist and they should all be eliminated. If it isn't spelled out in the Constitution, the federal government should not be doing it.
Answered By: Bear - 3/9/2010
Probably most of them. But we need a strong defense, so I wouldn't cut anything about that.
Answered By: CIA - 3/9/2010
NO some are good & very necessary but I'm sure many of them could be melded together or even discarded. This is for an economics or budget reason. The governments role is to protect not care for our welfare.

Some of them, but not most of them.
Answered By: Think 1st - 3/9/2010
These are a few of the ABC's of bureaucracy. Almost all are pencil-pushers without any useful purpose. Only their abolition can help solve our budget problems, although that alone is nowhere near enough.

This country was founded without any of these programs. If it keeps going in the direction it's going, we may as well rejoin the countries we fled from. This is the last stand on earth for freedom loving people. Lose it and lose freedom.
Answered By: Larry - 3/9/2010
They all look like federal programs administering things that should be left to the states besides the CIA whose actions are highly questionable as far as constitutionality. I'm in favor of elimination.

Do you wish to make our nation completely incompetent simply because you don't understand the good and necessary work that many of these organizations do? Must we reduce our national apparatus to simply the work that you're capable of handling?

No unless you want the US to become a 3rd world country.

Leave the Wild Horses alone, it's about the only thing this country does that actually makes money. When the population of wild horses grows too large, they round them up and sell them off.
Answered By: itsamini1 - 3/9/2010
I suspect that you don't know what most of these do so how can anybody be sure that they don't do good work and are necessary. I can see several that are very necessary and would not support their elimination.

I hate paying taxes as much as anyone, but people like you drive me crazy. Where do you think our country would be without all these organizations.
