For those who bash Newt's "Moon Colony" idea, please understand that this is NOTHING NEW. NASA already was well into a program that planned to build a base on the moon in order to learn how to live in those conditions and to eventually use the base to launch spacecraft to Mars. The program was terminated once Obama came into office and now the US does not even have its own spacecraft to go into space, a pathetic regression from the advanced and inspiring country that sent the first man to the moon. Newt's idea was used merely as a convenient and simple-minded way for his haters to bash him, while these haters chose to be ignorant of the similar NASA program that had already been in place, of which they never spoke ill of in the past.
