He went on about how we need to encourage competition. We need to stop with these corporate monopolies. We need to start protecting the little guy like you and me. And it's about time to give us the advantage for once over the billionaires and we haven't even gotten into space launches yet and. I don't know that we will if we have time. I'll let you know what i think about that.
