Goodspaceguy, 2012 candidate for Congress from Washington State, District 7
This is Message #43 from me, Goodspaceguy, on my blog Our Spaceship Earth.
I am now a 2012 candidate for US Representative to Congress from the 7th Congressional District of Washington State.
I, Goodspaceguy, ask that you think of our Earth as a natural spaceship that travels in our solar system around our star, the Sun, and with our Sun travels within our Milky Way Galaxy, a collection of hundreds of billions of solar systems.
Our knowledge of science and technology is continuing to advance.
Guided by the Science of Economics, let’s solve national and world problems from the viewpoint that we are crewmembers and voters of our Spaceship Earth.
Some centuries have greatness in them. In the 20th Century, we Earthlings moved from the Horse and Buggy Age into the Automobile Age and into the Airplane Age and into the Movie and Television Age and into the Computer Age and into the beginning of the Space Age. We can raise the living standard even more than we have.
A great goal for our new 21st Century is to start the Age of Orbital Space Colonization! It’s almost here. On 2012 May 25, Naturalized American Elon Musk and his Space X Team enabled Space X to be the first privately owned space rocket company to deliver supplies to the International Space Station. In 2006 and 2007, American Robert T. Bigelow of Nevada and his team put experimental, inflatable habitats into orbit. Also, the Russians are available for hire to send cargo and people up into orbital space. By hiring rocket launch services, the people of any nation can participate in the Space Age.
Space Colonization should have been the goal from the beginning of our American space program. We should already have the beginning orbital space colonies with over 260 habitats, but we don’t. We only have about the equivalent of 6 habitats joined together to form the International Space Station. We have already spent the necessary money, but unfortunately our leaders were not educated in orbital space colonization and so wasted billions and billions of dollars of our space money and burnt up much of our space material, that the space colonists could have used.
The beginning colonization of orbital space should become NASA’s main research project: helping private enterprise to start space colonization. Private owners can colonize space more effectively, but NASA can help. The space colonizers will need much help. NASA should stop burning up our space assets!
About 400 million years ago, life came up from the sea and colonized the land of Earth. Now, the colonization of orbital space by life from Earth is of similar significance. You live in a time of historic transformation: Humans moving up to the High Frontier.
Before the arrival of the next killer asteroid or killer comet or nuclear war, I, Goodspaceguy, want us to spread life from Earth out into our solar system. The space colonists should get ready to mine away the next killer asteroid or comet that threatens Earth. The space colonists should use its material to expand the beginning orbital space colonies. The space colonists should also mine and use the materials of the near Earth asteroids and comets to help expand their orbital space colonies. This should be cheaper than the high cost of bringing all the needed material up from Earth. Let’s follow the low-cost path to the Fantastic Future. Let NASA help the private space colonies.
I, Goodspaceguy, study economics with the goal of raising the living standard by increasing production and jobs. Let’s improve the quality-of-life. Please vote for those small-spending candidates who understand the Science of Economics, led by incentive.
So that we can live longer and healthier, I, Goodspaceguy, want more medical research, rejuvenation research, and longevity research. Let’s continue the great and surprising advances of the Twentieth Century into our new Twenty-first Century.
Because Maryland donated the land that became Washington D.C., the people of Washington D. C. should be allowed to vote federally through the state of Maryland.
I, Goodspaceguy, want beautiful Puerto Rico to become the 51st state.
The Planned Economies worked poorly. The planners usually got things wrong. Please support the consumer directed, Competitive Free Market where the prices for the different kinds of labor are set by the interaction of the Supply of different kinds of labor with the Demand for that labor, not sabotaged by the economy crippling minimum wage.
The Competitive Free Market works for you, the consumers, but the planners sometimes interfere and sabotage your Competitive Free Market Economy, stopping it from re-adjusting to serve you, the consumers. Using prices, Supply and Demand, profit and incentive, the Free Market tries to readjust. But you have voted many misguided leaders into power who don’t understand incentive and the Science of Economics. This lack of knowledge of the profit and wealth incentives and the Science of Economics has sabotaged our economy and put harmful rigidities into our economy that has led to job loss, suffering, decreased production, and a lower living standard for us, the people. The living standard could be much higher if we allowed the consumer directed, Competitive Free Market to function. In order to raise the living standard, we should un-sabotage our economy. We should start by abolishing the job-destroying minimum wage. What does the minimum wage do? It destroys jobs. Jobs and employers go bye-bye. The minimum wage helps create many homeless people and decreases the production of goods and services that could raise our living standard. Crime increases. Some religious people might say that God created Supply and Demand to continually adjust the changing prices of labor in our Exchange Economy, but the servants of Satan have introduced rigidity and suffering by establishing the job-destroying, employer-destroying minimum wage.
Born in Minnesota, I was university educated in Germany, Sweden, and America. My Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees were in business with minors in ECONOMICS.
I am a non-smoker, non-drinker, non-drug user, but as a Libertarian believer in individual freedom and free will and upward evolution, I believe that each individual should decide whether or not to engage in habits which are thought to be harmful to oneself. Taxpayers, through their governments, should not incur the wasteful cost of interfering. I am pro-choice on almost everything. I am able to read several foreign languages, and I recommend that Economics be taught in our public schools.
I, Goodspaceguy, am an amateur astronomer, economist, investor, owner, and an admirer of stars in the sky and in the movies, and I want more stars in our flag.
Please keep your campaign contributions at $24 or less. Thank you.
