    Well the only way for the human race to survive is if we can leave earth. Using the moon for a stepping stone to get to mars is also an idea.

    BTW, did any of you that are commenting against Newt even read the article? It is short and a good read. What he is arguing for is a good thing. His vision should be commended even if you don't like him.

    He's not a dumbass. Ron Paul is my guy, but if Newt is the nominee he has my vote. I don't agree with him on everything, but he'd be better that Mitt, the gun grabber.

    As far as this moon base goes, GWB was pushing that idea also. My take on it, might not seem like a priority, but if we let China or Russia get to the moon and establish a base first, then what? USA might be sliding towards socialism, we might be losing our freedom by death of a thousand papercuts, but do you really want anyone of those states with a moon base before we get there?

    Honestly, I think we need to shut down all our military bases around the world, restructure the military to be able to strike any foe on short notice but a moon base? Yes, I think that might be a good idea.

    Moonbase sounds good to me. Can't wait to get him up there to start scouting real estate.

    Wow! We are fracked because we are out of money. And he wants to start this. I guess we'll all just starve for the good of the space program.

    I read it. He says that he wants MORE of my money to support Florida. I'm sure Florida approves.

    Read it. His comments are still full or "dumbassery" and speculative lies to sway out of work Floridians who banked on the industry in many varying aspects.

    They could launch this thing from Houston for all I care, and I'm a Florida resident. I think it's a good idea because the alternative, letting the CHICOMS or Russians get there first basically sucks.

    I assume you mean because we will totally screw up our own planet? We treat it like a land fill, then leave.
