Also the homeland security behemoth and all of the money that is spent on domestic "information gathering". That whole department needs to be dismantled.

The cornerstone of a consumerism society is having a large enough population, with enough wealth distributed among the people, to keep the volume of traded currency high. in order to facilitate a constantly growing economy.

We don't have that wealth distribution anymore, and as taxes have progressively diminished over the last 40 years, it's safe to say that "lowering taxes for the rich" just doesn't work.
