Skip to comments.Petition to withdraw from the Outer Space Treaty, claim the moon as American territory
Posted on 12/19/2012 1:30:07 PM PST by Marcus
Withdrawing from the Outer Space Treaty and claiming the moon as sovereign American territory would allow the United States to sell land parcels and mineral rights on Earths nearest neighbor. The moon is filled with natural resources, including platinum, water (useful for creating rocket fuel and for sustaining space settlers) and helium 3, a substance that does not exist in nature on Earth that could be used to fuel limitless and clean fusion energy. The proceeds of selling pieces of the moon could be used to retire part of the national debt. The United States will need to defend its claim of and private property on the moon by establishing a base on there as well as by engaging in diplomacy with other nations to secure agreement that the United States should be the steward of the moon.

You’ll never get the Martians to agree to this.
Nothing would propel manned exploration missions in space like a new land grab to proclaim ownership.
Not a good idea.
What will the stocks be/look like .. ?
As long as I have export rights to all of the Moon dust to be shipped to all of the druggies on Earth.
It’s far out, man! (Tommy Chong voice)
Why do you say that?
Hey China, we’ll give you half the moon to erase our debt.
The Martians? Heck, you’ll never get Obama and the arabs to agree.
Because impact brecciated regolith yearns to be free.
No matter. NASA has retired all the real engineers and replaced them with instructors in the muslim “religion.”
We couldn’t get to the moon if we tried.
Right...build some landing and departure zones but keep them far above the surface. Then charge any visitors up the wazoo for parking.
From “getting to the moon” to (under nobama) “worshiping the moon”.
The current occupant of the oval office would never go for it. Instead, he would chop it up and give most of it away as reparations and payment for colonialism and slavery.
Friends....are you still looking for that present for the person who has everything? Well! Look no further! I am offering you the opportunity to buy a 20 oz bottle of authentic moon water for the low, low price of $25!!! Imagine the look on your loved one’s face when he/she tears off the wrapping to find a bottle of OLD SEWER PIPE MOON WATER! Guaranteed to quench your thirst and make you better looking! Buy yours today!
Just wishful thinking in fantasy land.
By that I mean to declare it a sovereign territory is one thing. But to effectively do it you need to defend it, and that is where the fantasy begins.
I think we should be more concerned with getting our own country back.
