What specific government programs do you want cut? I don't mean any new federal grants or new regulations, I mean actual specific programs on the federal level. So many of my friends have been complaining about government spending, but when I ask them which specific programs they want cut, all they say is 'all of them.'

I want the entire federal agency apparatus gone (including the privately owned and run Federal Reserve), except the Department of Defense, Treasury, and other Constitutionally mandated departments.

What are you laughing at? 90% of what the federal government does is supposed to be the responsibility of the states

You know the Tea Parties were originally started by Ron Paul, a libertarian? But then the GOP establishment co-opted the tea parties and made it into a big-tent thing because they fear they will topple the pro-big government establishment

DOD can be simplified... Cut the contracts big-time! us that money to invest in the military, and restore our military culture.
Cut most/all special interest projects. No money for gay rights or abortions.
Eliminate many gov't agencies. re-evaluate the police force, and move unnecessary forces to higher priority duty...
(i.e. less desk cops, more drug enforcement)
