Talking about YouTube – Who’s More Pro-Science, Republicans or Democrats? – Neil deGrasse Tyson

 Strangely enough, what Dr. Tyson is saying here is quite true…although to my ear it comes off sounding a touch pro-Republican.  While the end result is, as he says, that Republicans end up tending to be more funding-friendly to NASA and other types of high-profile/high-priority research, the motives tend to be different (I believe) from those who see the merits of such funding as being more than making the United States look great and/or powerful.  The gains are in helping to better our understanding of the universe and insodoing address the world’s problems rather merely winning political capital either domestically or internaionally…
