    "The United States federal government spends $480 billion per year of tax payers money on R&D and the resulting commercialization from that research has resulted in a less than 5% ROI (Return On Investment for you liberals)". - Robert Brumley (Pegasus Global Holdings)

    (Since liberals are the parasite class that lives off of the government, they don't understand these concepts. So allow me to dumb it down to your level: the over bloated, unconstitutional, monstosity of a government that you have created spends an enormous amount of money and we have very little to show for it).

    So because he says so, it must be true?

    EDIT - Since when is R&D a "liberal" policy? LOL! Tell that to all the researchers working for the U.S. military.

    Why is it any rightie who has taken Econ 101 thinks he's the world's most brilliant economist and everyone else is stupid?

    Exactly. What he's saying is that liberals spend money on R&D for political returns, not monetary. A great example is the "green energy" failure. The liberals have been dumping billions on top of billions into green energy research since Jimmy Carter. They do this, not because it is providing results, but because it makes their voting base happy, which keeps them wealthy and in power.

    But you are right, it has nothing to do with R&D (sadly).

    Because socialists research the polls, to see which constituency they can develop into dependents of the state, using taxpayer funds.

    The largest R&D expense of the U.S. government is military.

    And as you can see from the chart, R&D is a smaller part of the budget under Clinton and Obama than Regan, Bush, and Bush.

    And as you can see from this chart

    [​IMG]

    most current non-defense R&D goes to the National Institutes of Health. NASA is the next highest, followed by the NSF.

    So I'm not sure what that's to do with liberals or conservatives.


    You might consider trying the "R" part of R&D next time you post.,

    Interesting chart.

    I'm rereading "The Day After Roswell" and spike in the chart represents the exact time when the US government used the military and defense contractors to reverse engineer the treasure trove of artifacts the got from the Roswell crash (fiber optics, night vision, superconductive materials, Kevlar, laser, etc.)
