Return to the moon
Although sending a man to the moon is a big accomplishment, is Mike Pence doing it for the right reasons? It seems like his motives behind it are corrupt. He wants the world to know what the States are capable of. That they are the powerhouse of the world with the most advanced system capable of sending a United States citizen to the moon for the second time. His manipulative nature and tendencies that are demonstrated through the politics and time in office make an appearance when "Pence threatened to use commercial launch systems or to look to other partners if Nasa is not ready in time." Pence also says "[The] next giant leap is to return American astronauts to the Moon within the next five years by any means necessary, and to establish a permanent presence on the Moon and prepare to put American astronauts on Mars." When he says by any means necessary, it is interpreted with a negative connotation that he is willing to spend any amount of money to ensure that the States make it to the moon for the second time, first. Even though there is a plethora of diverse conflicts and foundations that require higher fiscal aid. For example, opposed to trying to prove a point, this money could be poured into cancer research or solving world poverty and famine. Overall, Pence, along with the support of the Trump administration is creating a competitive and hostile political climate while doing what they do best, acting in the best interest of themselves and the records they can break while seemingly ignoring the dire need of their citizens.
