Getting rid of these things would get rid of 60% of the federal budget. We should phase out entitlements. It isn't the government's responsibility to take care of people. People should figure this stuff out themselves. Further more, it shouldn't be the government's role to so-called "educate" people. All our public educational system is, is a way to indoctrinate the children and teach them to be obedient. There is no free thought or critical thinking and children are not allowed to question authority. Kids are expected to take what our government tells us as fact. Well, I got news for you, this is the same government that allowed tens of thousands of Americans to die after lying to us about the Gulf of Tonkin and pushing propaganda to get us into Vietnam. Our public schools push propaganda such as pledging to the flag. We cannot trust the government to educate our kids.
