India to Space
As noted in a current post, India is seeing progression in the world of technology. They are also close to sending a citizen to space, compliments of the United States of America. This article did not share many of the details concerning this trip. It did share that the trip will be fully funded by the Bush administration. The whole purpose of the trip is to acknowledge our partnership with India. I believe that partnerships are vital, expecially on the global market. However, I feel that the U.S. government is kicking its own butt by always trying to please other countries and neglecting some major domestic issues. If the government was to focus more on in-house issues (ie. welfare programs, the homeless population, and illegal citizens) versus trying to make the rest of the world happy, I believe that it would receive more support from its own people. I am not saying to drop the rest of the world and only focus on our country, because that would not be a feasible solution concerning the necessity of our importing/exporting businesses. But the government needs to do a self-evaluation and figure out how to keep more of its funding here within our country in order to boosts its morale. When a country's morale is strong, usually the economy is too!
