The past few weeks about ,avoiding government shutdown and the budget, and President Obama's re-election campaign back in chi town. All this small potatoes ,and not getting to the real meat. As typical with republicans, wanting to cut social services spending, nothing is mentioned about, cutting military spending, notice I said "military" spending, not "defense" spending. There has to be made ALL around, not just a cut here and slice here. some real cuts.Help spread the message, go to downsizedc.org and lets cut down government, it was started by the late ,great Libertarian ,Harry Browne.
