Is there any way to balance the federal budget without touching entitlement programs?

No. But both parties are to blame...
Both parties have vastly expanded the military and welfare spending of the government.

Abolish the IRS, the EPA, the Department of Education, and put a freeze on bureaucratic hiring.

Increase tax revenue, (income tax policy reform, corporate tax reform, eliminate SS tax caps,) decrease spending, (defense spending,) and grow the economy, (invest in education and infrastructure.)

You asked "any way"
We could eliminate the dept of defense.
You may not like the results but the budget could be reduced and balanced. Also that would throw the economy into a depression.

Start with reasonable downsizing of military. Up SS age to come more in line with the rise in current life expectancy.
