Ask the man in the street who invented the pilotless drone and I’m pretty sure the answer will be U.S. engineers in the employ of the military.
But of course, the drone was conceived and invented by men of vision, dreamers, entrepreneurs.
Let’s face it, democratic governments are not—and should not be—investing in chosen industries. Just look at Obama’s Solyndra investment. A debacle that has cost you, the American tax payer, millions of dollars.
Governments stifle creativity because government works towards a one-size fits all model. Once again, Obamacare is a perfect example of a government run program that will, inevitably, destroy free choice and innovation in health care. Government programs always suffocate creativity and innovation. Take a look in your medicine cabinet. Not one of the life enhancing pills upon which you rely was conceived or invented by government.
Thus, it’s not wonder that one of the best weapon systems currently in use, the jihad-killing, pilotless drone, was conceived by a brilliant engineer—an Israeli-born Jew—and built, like the Apple computer, in a garage.
