If I had my way, overall government spending (local, regional, national) would:

100% said decrease, by more than 10%
0% said decrease, by less than 10%
0% said increase, by more than 10%
0% said increase, by less than 10%

The best possible thing that could happen to improve the efficiency of government spending would be:

50% said the end of militarism
50% said the end of corruption
0% said decentralization
0% said other

Government spending should be based on needs, without regard for how much tax revenue is available.

10% said I agree with that
90% said I disagree with that

It should be impossible for a government to spend more than its income, no matter what.

100% said I agree with that
