"I believe in science... don't you want a president that believes in science? Believing in God is a great tool, but he can't just sit there and not give any money to sciences. I mean, you're majoring in science - how can you agree with that position?"
Simple answer: If people want the science done, they'll pay for it themselves. If President Bush wants to subsidize scientific research, then where will the money come from (see mission to Mars, et cetera)?
"Would you give up your favorite government program if it meant you never had to pay income tax again?"
Conservative Answer: Yes!
