Our space infrastructure(from gps to so much more) is too important for nearly every element of our society not to be protected and we as a nation face the very real prospects of other threats from space like asteroids that could wipe out cities, states and even our nation. These bastards say they're pro-science? If you don't understand these realities you're not.
To act like some stupid space treaty promoting pie in the sky bullshit of forever peace outside the bounds of this planet is pure idiocy and doesn't work in reality. It doesn't work and other nations like russia and china could very well attack our infrastructure and one day we may face that killer asteroid, but hopefully with this new branch of our military we can help defend our planet. Sorry, but if we spot that asteroids I want every element of our military to fucking protect and defend this country with everything we have.
If the democratic party continues to attack science and defense of our nation, well they probably shouldn't be surprised when they don't win back the house in November.
