I would agree that we can’t afford our current defense spending, health care, or in fact the whole government. Get rid of 99% of the government and its regulations, let people start and run businesses without a mountain of red tape, and I’m guessing there would be plenty of work for those willing and able. Of course, there will always be the few that are unable who will need some kind of assistance. There is no reason why that can’t be handled on the local level. As for those unwilling to work…well, I don’t feel sorry for them, nor do I feel a need to provide them with a basic income.
