Well, if you'll be happy to be unemployed thanks to a crapped up economy so long as someone else gets to go to Mars, that's your prerogative.
You do realize that we still have people living on the streets who are jobless, homeless and whatnot with the government doing likely nothing to help these people back into society for one thing.
In UK for example, you have a catch 22 situation where such people cannot even get out of their predicament until the government changes rules.
Furthermore ... just how much of the taxpayers money has the government spent on projects that never amounted to anything or actually made the transition to new technologies that would completely change our way of living?
Just look how wealthy people in power are and how much politicians make compared the 'average joe'.
