I do have to give George W. Bush credit for doing at least one positive thing in his reign of power. President Bush has done well by our space programs. This does surprise me.
I prefer the ethics of an honest democrat to those of a conservative republican, but at least those republicans are currently getting us one step closer to finding our way off this mud ball we call Earth.
Although I do prefer the humanity of an honest democrat, sometimes you have to understand that space is just as vital a goal for the long term survival of the human race as is the feeding and sheltering of today's poor.
I feel that it is vital that the human race get out there into the cosmos and spread our seeds of life as far and as wide as possible. I would like to see humanity get the chance to continue living, and evolving, in times long after our Earth and Sun have stopped being able to sustain human life. We can never achieve our space goals if no one is willing to spend the money and take the chances to learn how to get out there into the depths of space and survive.
So, if I have to say at least one good thing about a person I rant about in most every other way, then this is it for George W. Bush, he is doing a good job at getting us humans one step closer to our destiny as colonists of the cosmos.
