Teabaggers Working to End Socialism in Space
A new Tea Party group in Florida is boldly going where no Tea Parties have gone before – space.
Tea Party in Space, an offshoot of the South Florida Tea Party, is, of all things, pushing to end the government’s supposed monopoly on space exploration.
‘Our goal is nothing less than the expansion of American civilization into the solar system,’ says the group’s platform. ‘We must return to traditional American free-market principles to expand permanently into space.’
Tea Party in Space is complaining that, as its founder Andrew Gasser said, ‘NASA is being forced to fund programs that are behind schedule and ridiculously over budget.’ But that’s not all. Gasser sees a great ideological principle here: ‘It is socialism when you have the government coming down and saying, ‘this is what we want to build, and this is how we want you to build it.”
Words fail me. Words should fail anyone with a double-digit IQ who reads this drivel. I really don’t know where to start, but that clown’s sad attempt to define socialism is probably the lowlight of this mess. If this guy’s their leader, how dumb must the followers be?
