A perfect example is the DMV in most places its open from 0830 to about 1630.
Deport all illegal aliens.
Pay existing obligations on social security, up to the point of an individuals original investment compounded at 5 percent. Make participation voluntary.
Leave all other functions of government to the individual states.
Eliminate medical lawsuits, and compensate only for actual physical damages, such as an inability to work due to an amputation.

If someone is to collect welfare or any other social service, some service must be provided in return. Feeding elderly, picking up trash, working an animal rescue. No free money given. Guaranteed the welfare rolls would drop, and things like simple customer service would imnprove. A little honest labor might improve our national character a little, who knows.
No, it will never be perfect. But we can at least make some meaningful movement with just some simple changes.
China also owns a significant portion of US national debt. US Admiral Mike Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has recently declared that the national debt is the number one security threat. As Mullen stated, “Tax payers will be paying around $600 billion in interest on the national debt by 2012.”
