    Who Can Save Humanity?

    If you've read my posts it's pretty obvious I'm a person that believes in human ingenuity and the human drive and freedom to accomplish the impossible. It's pretty obvious I hold no faith or hope in governments - no matter the country.

    Government, as an entity, has never advanced the human race, nor has any government ever advanced the human species. As government grows larger and increasingly socialistic it only perpetuates our decline.

    Perhaps those dreams of decades ago of all the great technology that we'd be enjoying now (flying cars, cars running of something other than oil, vacations to Mars, etc.) would have come to pass if governments stayed smaller and allowed private enterprise and the free spirit to flourish - but governments grew and are more oppressive than ever.

    Growing government has forced the focus FROM dreaming outwards where a better future for all resides, TO a focus inward - on self - reducing the vision that would evolved our species. A better destiny has been stumped in favor of, what amounts to, simply maintaining global misery.

    Sometimes an encouraging ray of hope appears - such as the Google Lunar X Prize:
    The Google Lunar X PRIZE is a $30 million international competition to safely land a robot on the surface of the Moon, travel 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send images and data back to the Earth. Teams must be at least 90% privately funded and must be registered to compete by December 31, 2010.

    Nothing great is accomplished alone. Find out who is offering assistance to the teams, from launch services to communications providers.
    If you click on the Preferred Partners link you will see no government entity is listed. Google knows the harmful effect of government.

    One bold ambition of the project: using lunar materials to make solar power collectors that can generate carbon-free energy, which is then transmitted to the Earth.

    Private enterprise challenging private enterprise advances technology. Goals that grow private enterprise result in more employment while goals to grow the union base and socialistic goals result in less employment and greater misery.

    What makes more sense - budgeting $35.3 Billion for the International Affairs Budget (bribes to leaders of other countries - as Congress has in their FY08 budget) or directing that sum (or tax breaks) to private enterprise in a challenge to create combustion free energy sources, creative health solutions, etc. - all of which translates into jobs, advancement of the human race, etc.

    The computer you use now was NOT brought to you by big government, but by creative and innovated private enterprise.

    The internet we all rely on was not part of some government budget to create an internet (as Al Gore claims), but the result of private research and development.

    No politician or group of politicians, no union, or any global socialist movement has, are, or ever will, advance the human race into a better age.

    Vote for Ron Paul - to restore America to the land of the free.
