Newt Gingrich Promises First Permanent Moonbase If Elected
Perhaps my only reason to stray from my democratic roots... Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich wants to send Americans back to the moon. And that's not all. In a direct quote, Gingrich promised: "By the end of my second term, we will have the first permanent base on the moon, and it will be American."
Also, he promises that NASA will build a rocket capable of reaching Mars in about eight years.
This all sounds great, but can we afford to even try anymore? I hope so.
