    Newt's idea is going to do more damage to NASA than anything anyone who hates science can possibly do. If you want to get people to the moon the last person you should vote for.

    We should focus the goal around mining the resources of space through a duel private and government sector relationship.

    More or less
    Government builds rockets(ships) and the first parts of the moon base.
    Mining corperations start mining for resources, which helps grow our gdp and pays for stage one.
    A Hotel for people interested in vacationing on the moon is built! People get interesting in becoming part of such and want to find away to live there.

    Once a economic engine is built on the moon through resource mining and hotels are developed then our foot hold on the moon will strengthen.

    Once this is in place a space based ship that goes back and forth from the moon back into earth's orbit can be built.

    This will
    1# Take the people back and forth
    2# Take the resources back to earth

    Later on a dome city can be built a lot like a normal city on earth. Most cities within the 18-19the century were set up around jobs! This will be no different! Trying to do it around putting a few scienctist into space isn't going to be lasting.

    Too bad Newt doesn't want to do that, he prefers to do big things than accomplish great things. Anyone that cares about space at all should vote for anyone but Newt.
