Does anyone know what Ron Paul's stance on science funding is? It seems to me that a strict application of libertarianism would preclude RP from supporting government-funded scientific research (from the NSF, NIH and NASA to name a few).
This would actually be a terrible move on RP's part, if my intuition is correct. Science funding is one place where "letting the market decide" is a bad, bad idea. I would appreciate it if someone could please clear this up, because there does not seem to be much reliable information on the subject.
