Out of all the great ideas I've read, I have not seen discussion on how much potential there would be to SAVE based on "political" aspects of our government. How about putting the power of our great nation back into the hands of "real" people as our founding fathers envisioned. Get back to making decisions based on common sense and experience! Ask the people who are affected most what they think about high level decisions called law, policy, directives, etc.. We continually make huge mistakes (fiscally and morally) by designing systems, committees, groups, enacting policy, etc. simply to satisfy a congressional or member of OMB! Give the power back to the people and we'd be a lot better off - fiscally and ethically!
