Well, Tom, not to be a negative-nelly, but I could also envision a situation where someone in Congress puts together a bill to fund Polywell research for the foreseeable future then one of the 2 scenarios takes place. Either the Republicans will add an earmark to this bill requiring that an oil rig be placed in the backyard of every liberal or the Democrats will add an earmark that a windmill should be place in the backyard of every conservative ... and funding would be stalled indefinitely until another country leap-frogs us to do it themselves.

LONG LIVE BICKERING, BACKSTABBING AND DIVISIVENESS!!!

Dear All,
I strongly recommend that the BFR community avoid any political involvement at all. There are many who will lose if this works out. We should not underestimate what efforts they will take to stop it. Political intervention will at best be nonproductive and at worst be a show stopper due to special interests. As far as that goes, we should also be cautious about environmentalists. Many of them are actually anti-people and will see this as something that empowers people to advance and expand to all corners of the Earth. The best hope of success is private investment. In this day and age there is sufficient private wealth to fund this project. That is the direction we should go.
