Like a lot of Trek fans, I love the idea of getting going on space exploration and the first baby steps of colonization of space. However, I'm not sold on the idea that this is the time for America to be putting the tax dollars into it. There is a lot of things on our plate here that needs to be addressed in terms of a deficit that seems to be about to spiral out of control, two foreign wars, and a ton of work that needs to be done in the American infrastructure. I think that the priority right now should be on the US getting it's house in order first.
