No I just don't think we needed the government to tell us we all needed to land on the moon to beat the Soviets. I mean who cares about it now. It was awesome to go to the moon, but let those who want to go there do the work to pay for it.Originally posted by: sirjonk
People like you and Ron Paul were convinced the moon landing was mocked up on a soundstage in hollywood.Originally posted by: Mavtek3100
Rock on John! You go get Al Gore's ass! Everyone thinks we need an underlying cause to progress in society. In the 60's it was the space race along with the Cold War, Vietnam, and the spread of Communism. In the 70's it was the oil crisis but it didn't do much, maybe that's why we did well in the 70's? In the 80's it was the Cold War and the "Evil Soviet Union". In the 90's, not so much to do really, the internet? Again with no progressive unifying cause we did pretty well. Now we have 2 major progressive causes 1 pushed by democrats and the other pushed by Republicans, the "War on Terror" and "Global Warming". Here's hoping like hell our next leader just leaves us all alone and makes insane government spending his "Cause".
