Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
it's high time to create a separate funding mechanism for the military, based exclusively on fuel taxation - because frankly, that's all it's used for: access to energy - and restore government, shorn of that function, to concentrate on its real tasks - ensuring safety and security for its citizens, which starts by economic safety, and includes environmental safety, and essentially means regulation of corporations, not pork, and focus on long term investment in infrastructure and education.

Reading the rest of your diary, this kind of seems to come out of left field.  But it's brilliant!  BRILLIANT!  Please come run my country.  Thank you.
