    This is a huge blow to America's lead. America needs to pull out of the middle east and beef up our technological and scientific sector. This is deadly serious as we can't maintain the most advance military on earth over china if they get the edge.

    We have a lead in something besides military spending?

    We're about ready to lose that. :( We can thank Obama...He also crapped away our economic competitiveness from first to seventh and credit rating.

    There's never been a president that has fucked this country so much.

    Whatdaya mean? Romney is gonna win isn't he?

    If you are speaking of sequestration, that came out of congress.
    Even with sequestration we will still outspend anyone else on military spending.

    The Military Industrial Complex controls this country, that's why we're in the Middle East.

    Obama was the one talking about research. He can't do anything about it, if we return him a Republican Congress. To get the country going again we need to stimulate education, research and infrastructure. Don't expect Romney to do anything. He's just going to be a puppet for his Congressional masters.

    Congress has no real role in this other than to quit catering to the LARGE (too big to fail) and start getting the fuck out of the way of the SMALL new high tech ventures.

    That means converting wasted subsidies, loans, and tax breaks to their PRINCIPAL FED responsibilities and reserving a small portion of the diff for TRUE RESEARCH and advanced R&D..

    Can't afford to have an army of compliance officers, accountants and lawyers as an initial expense part of a serious Tech start-up..
