A great number of people may have some good ideas and present foundations for thought to others by taking this and running with it. Here are a few of my personal pet peeves and ways to save money. 1. Look very hard at duplication of services: Disband the Department of Homeland Security as it now exists combining these duties with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Combining the two agencies would be a major savings and result in better communication while eliminating delays. The DHS and it's duties are absorbed by the FBI. 2. Remove the ability of elected officials to send State based National Guardsmen in place of actual branches of the United States Military to Foreign soil. National Guardsmen are from that point forward geared towards protecting this country in times of National Emergency, Disaster, as was their original purpose. Take away the key to making the start of any "invasion" of another country simple or easy. 3. Criminalize on a Federal level consumer fraud by any placing in tough regulations that would protect the American People from corruption or profiteering in both public and private industries serving the American People. 4. Simplification of Services: Federal Drivers Licensure for both Commercial and Private levels. Universal Traffic Laws in all States. Elimination of State Licensure for Medical Professionals and passing this on to the Federal level. This would prevent a Bad MD from going to a different State after butchering a number of patients. Federal Standards, Federal Licensure, zero loopholes. Federal Licensure for Banking Executives, CEO's and anyone involved in the banking or lending industries. Licenses to be renewed every few years and the record of these individuals to be reviewed before renewal. Here are a few ways I can see savings that could be passed on, What are your positive ideas that you feel would cut budgets and at the same time benefit the American People.
