I really like Ron Paul, I really do, but axing of some of the government agencies mentioned seems excessive. Is it Ron Paul's plan to completely
remove all Federal support to the sciences? I am not sure, but it looks that way.
Yes the states can look after many things, and the people can buck up and look after themselves in many areas. Yet is it not a collective will in many
areas, mostly science, that made the USA such a super power and beacon for freedom that we see it as today.
I like the man, I really do, but he needs to back off on his stance in regards to science, research and development... do you really want corporations
to hold the technological edge? Corporations that are sovereign to none...
Just to add - I normally visit 3 main sites to get an overview on things, that being ATS, Slashdot and CNN, I see ATS as a good place to find news
that the mainstream won't touch, CNN as basically government shills and Slashdot as a good area for neutral academic type discussion. In saying this I
ask you, the reader to take special heed of the comments about this on Slashdot... well not all, but it should be realised that there are many smart
people that frequent that site, people worth listening to...
