Thanks for the thoughtful response. I just don't trust the government to do this in the way that you and I would accept and tolerate because they haven't proven themselves to be trustworthy. The way you see it might certainly be helpful if it were to work out that way. I just don't think they are able to keep their hands off our money and do it right.
THAT is what you are defending. There is no "none of the above" option. They can't keep their hands off money as they already take the money. When you say you don't trust the government you don't get that choice. It is trusting the government to continue failed programs or having new ones start that have scientific potential to be better. Those are the two choices. I'm always fascinated when conservatives act like they are choosing no program when they are choosing the current multitude of programs.
