    I want to cut the War in Afghanistan.

    I want to cut the War on Terror, lest we drone strike every Muslim into hating us.

    I want to cut the War on Drugs, decriminalize all recreational herbs and pharmaceuticals, tax the same, and spend money on treatment.

    I want to cut out the Prison Industrial Complex for, but some studies, up to 70% of the 2.6 million Americans behind bars are needlessly in jail.

    I want to use the savings from the above cuts to cut our deficit and debt.

    Teh stoopidTM, it hurts. Buy smart, union-printed, USA-made, signs, stickers, swag for everyone: Get your We are the 99% Yard Sign.
