Based on these debt levels, one can predict that there will soon be a huge consensus within government in support of a program that used to earn the ire of Senator William Proxmire: SETI, aka the search for extraterrestrial life. Why would this subject suddenly become the darling of everyone from the Treasury to the DOD? Simple, when we find ET's home worlds, we can parlay their mere existence into a mortal threat in order to justify er ah, astronomically ...increased defense budgets. Simultaneously, we will contact them and borrow the money from them to pay for it.

But this is not my idea... I read about it here:

*William (aka DiLithium) Kristol IV
Project for a New American Galaxy

Picture of William here:

The Project for the New American Galaxy is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to a few fundamental propositions: that American leadership is good both for our Spiral Arm and for the whole Galaxy; and that such leadership requires military strength, diplomatic energy, googleplexes of dollars, provocation and offense of all detectable lifeforms and the gradual distortion or outright suppression of all known moral principles.

I like Fred!
