I'll do the math. Texas is 268,581 square miles. 5280 X 5280 = 27,878,400 square feet X 268,581 square miles = 7,487,608,550,400.With World Population of 7 billion that a little over 1000 square feet home for each of us in Texas with NO roads, NO schools, No bodies of water, No crops, no anything.<quoted text>
Now I see where you are coming from However, I think your perspective is a little skewed. The earth is far from over populated and in fact if the human race decided to build a city like New York to fill the state of Texas it would have the capacity to hold the entire worlds population. NOTE: I am far from advocating this, and merely illustrating the size of our earth is much larger than most think man is. BUT I do see and understand that your perspective is that.
YOU CAN ONLY BE AS FREE AS THE PEOPLE AROUND YOU WILL ALLOW YOU TO BE!!! From my perspective freedom, as presented from our founders, comes from God. People or governments do not grant us our freedom as Americans, he have it as a universal right. That being said I dont equate freedom with seclusion, and in America there is plenty of room if one seriously wanted to be secluded.
I am a Christian and I believe the earth and humanity is only here for a time, however, I do like the idea of colonizing other places other than this planet, however when Jesus comes He will bring us home even if we are living on Mars.
Lastly, humans will never make it to space with a green energy attitude. The power needed for space travel is NOT green energy, so therefore until government gets out of the way of free enterprise when it comes to energy, it will not happen.
BUT I am hopeful with Gods help Americans will realize our freedoms are what move and drive us forward to be great and hope the government learns to get out of our way especially at our shot for space.

Government has always help us use less energy.If not for the government we all would be driving cars that get 15 mpg tops. Replace a ten year old refrigerator with a new old save 20%. replace that 20 year old fridge save 60% in energy. Time 200 million new refrigerator we have green life off.
