Budget Crisis Meme

Here's the little meme I've been posting around the intrawebz...

"Simple Solutions To The Budget Crisis:
End two wars of occupation­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­. Leave the Middle East.
Stop fighting the Cold War. Leave Europe.
Stop funding the military power of other nations.
End all military contracts, and return all of those duties to the military itself.
Close Guantanamo and return Cuba's sovereign territory.
Stop subsidizin­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­g the already highly profitable oil industry.
Stop subsidizin­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­g the highly unprofitab­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­l­e corn industry.
Stop paying a fortune to incarcerat­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­e minor, non-violen­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­t drug offenders.
Establish a State Bank for each of the fifty states and have each state treasury deposit ALL state revenues, pension funds, etc 'exclusive­­ly' in their own State Bank.
Establish a national 'buy in' program for Medicare with no age restrictions.
Extend Medicaid to everyone below the poverty line.
Rebuild all of America's infrastruc­­­­­ture from the ground up.
Rebuild American industry here in America itself, by government fiat if necessary.
...and the biggest one, return to the sensible Eisenhower era taxation rate."

Steal and re-post.
