Newt Gingrich Wants to Colonize the Moon

Every American Indian, First Nation and other indigenous group has names for the moon.

But forget about Winter’s Younger Brother (Choctaw), Moon of the Strong Cold (Cheyenne) and When Snow Blows Like Spirits in the Moon (Arapaho), which only cover the January moon anyway. The Abenaki, Algonquin, Anishnaabe, Apache, Arapaho, Assiniboine, Cherokee, Cheyenne, Coctaw, Comanche, Cree, Creek, Haida, Hopi and a host of other American Indian tribes have a different one for each month, according to Western Washington University Planetarium’s website.

Republican Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has come up with an overarching name: 51st State, America. Slap that on the list of Sh*t Newt Gingrich Says.

“By the end of my second term we will have the first permanent base on the moon and it will be American,” he told raucously cheering constituents in Florida, in an area known as the Space Coast, where the U.S. shuttle program was recently discontinued. “We will have commercial, near-earth activities that include science, tourism and manufacturing and are designed to create a robust industry precisely on the model of the development of the airlines in the 1930s, because it is in our interest to acquire so much experience in space that we clearly have a capacity that the Chinese and the Russians will never come anywhere close to matching.”

And, given that colonization has worked so well here on Earth, he will not be satisfied with just a moon base.

“By the end of 2020 we will have the first continuous propulsion system in space capable of getting to Mars in a remarkably short time,” Gingrich continued, “because I am sick of being told we have to be timid, and I’m sick of being told we have to limit ourselves to technologies that are more than 50 years old.”

Don’t believe it? Hear for yourself.
