    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Eventually, we'll build a highway and you'll be able to drive to Mars in your flying car.

    Some of us, anyway.

    That would be annoying, yes... but it's not like Mars has a crime problem, and I've heard the hunting sucks.

    I come here with my "notions" and I argue my case with the best of my ability and occasional fanciful concepts.

    For example, I know that the last Cat Cafe on Mars closed in 12374 CM due to a shortage of willing cats. Yet I mentioned this as possible attraction.

    Once I make my case, I welcome dispute and explanation to prove me wrong. But I don't call those who don't agree with me "stupid". I just call them "misguided"

    But you would be going with other humans which would be where the danger would lie.

    Yeah and didn't accomplish a thing. It's like we just wasted 40 years or there about.

    You are absolutely right. The trick is to make them RV or trailer absolutely huge. I mean bigger than an aircraft carrier. Significantly so. That means assembling that living space in space. We have a few things to learn yet before we can do the trip comfortably and efficiently.

    Sounds like an excellent idea to me.
