@ GiraffeEars- I would have to agree and disagree with you. While I like the ideological premise behind your statements, I have to disagree with the practical premise of them. If you did not allow grants and subsidies for research into cures and for profit organizations, you would actually hinder the growth of the field of biological nanotechnology. You would also create a competitive disadvantage for this country, and you would end up sending valuable high paying jobs overseas. Case in point, Stem Cell Research and the billions of dollars the American Economy loses since the industry has practically moved overseas. Often times, ideology and practicality just clash.
