Debt, indifference and redirection of emphasis means that America soon will have no manned space program. This means the United States will be incapable of repairing orbiting satellites and space stations, which ultimately means reduced military intelligence. In short, this country will be falling behind China, Russia, Europe and possibly even Iran in mastering the "High Ground" of space.

Despite our love affair with freedom, freedom is not and cannot be absolute. Freedom must have limits and boundaries. No constitution, no body of law or armed force is adequate to police a morally confused people who confuse lawlessness with freedom. The only question is this: shall the boundaries of liberty be set by the state or by the invisible constraints of character?
