Newt wants a moon base...

Newt-Gingrich-makes-a-cam-007Going into next week’s Florida primary (the primary where I will be casting a vote), I had already anticipated voting for Newt Gingrich.

Not becauseI had any undying loyalty or devotion to the man…

But rather because of my genuine belief that unlike Romney- who strikes me a whole lot like the guy currently occupying the White House… a just another suit speaking a peoples game while selling us to the highest bidders- or Santorum – who, if nominated, will be talking about gay rights and every other silly social non-issue that the Establishment would rather we worry about (as opposed to the real bullshit that needs to be sorted out by our government), Newt will at least talk about the issues at hand; hoping that his ballsiness will be enough to counter his over the top unfavorability ratings.

But something happened on the way to the polling place...

I started not hating the idea of havint to vote for him.

Newt started laying out a vision for the future of this country...

Most notably, his recent pronouncement that-should he be elected- America will make establishing a permenant Moon Base a priority.

Speaking while on his break-neck sprint across Florida, hoping to capitalize on his bounce from his shocking victory in South Carolina and fresh off of a strong debate performance, Republican hopeful Newt Gingrich promised an enthusiastic crowd that by the end of his second term in Office (ambitious fat headed fucker, ain’t he…) America would once again have planted their flag upon the lunar surface and would have established a permanent base there.

Now nevermind the laughability that a nation 15 trillion in the hole and no foreseeable plan to ever getting itself paid out is going to set up a ultra-expensive moon base…

The guy has vision, there’s no denying that.

But it is not that insane of an idea…

There was more behind Kennedy’s daring America to make it to the moon by the close of the 60s than just some cocky ruler of the world’s latest empire talking out of his ass about his nation’s greatness…

It gave this nation a goal to work towards.

And in the process of working towards that goal, a plethora of scientific discoveries were rendered…

From everyday things like Tang and Velcro to more high end creations like cellular technologies and microwave ovens; the space race was a Renaissance for the American people… Something our currently uninspired nation could use in the worst way.

And with our global competitors- the Russians and the Chinese- both openly discussing not only plans for manned missions to the moon but for the establishment of permanent Russian and Chinese moon bases by 2020(not to mention the plans for Martian missions), it seems rather important that someone in the race has some sort of desire to kick start our all but buried space program(which died more from a lack of interest by the people, bored to tears by yearly missions to deliver food to the ISS and satellite or two for Direct TV, than it did from a lack of willingness by our Government in investing in the technologies) and get the America once again as the world’s leader in innovation and forward thinking.
