    Gingrich just seems to be trying to hand the republican primary to Romney.First he supports amnesty for illegals, Claims Palastinians are an invented people. And now with our trillions of dollars in debt he wants a colony on the moon. He just keeps doing this,

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I'd say it's as legit as 99% of any campaign promise.

    If Ron Paul or any candidate that didn't appear to be a corporate shill promised this maybe I would give a f***. For some unknown reason im sure a peaceful world government hinges on hardcore space colonization. Once we can live in outer space forever then many of the embers of war will eventually die out. Except for war via diehard trickery + stupid people. I cant shake this feeling Gingrich is worse that Obama or Bush. His smile gives me the skeevies.

    He would opt to send an ant colony to the moon and redact it so that the news will say "________ SPACE COLONY _______ ___________ MOON." All thought that is giving the Executive of the US a bit too much credit. As if he (Executive spot) isnt just a smiling outlet for corporations that frowns from time to time.

    Romney and Santorum actually did a pretty good job at broadsiding Newt over this last night. Every state he visits, he talks about some extravagant project in each one.

    Not nearly as extravagent as Romney will be supporting the Obamacare plan. You don't really believe he'll repeal it do you? That program will likely end up costing as much as a trip to Vulcan.

    We should do the Vulcan thing then because they have better technology, including medical technology. The health care bill wont be necessary anymore!

    You know...if I didn't hate his policies so bad I would actually be rooting for Gingrich to get the Presidency and make things interesting.
