Liberals as democrates today are not really liberals. The are neo liberals, modern liberals, not the classical liberals that have advocated for free markets in the 19th and 19th centuries. We have neoliberal freemarkets now, which means deregulation by regulation, if that makes any sense.

NASA is just an arm of the military. But most of the money probably goes to weaponizing space and puttign more suviellance tech into space. And for other weapon projects.

well, American "liberals" have always been different from "liberals" of classical economics

in the classical economic sense, "liberals" in the john smith, invisible hand sense want to open markets and expand the inter-connectivity of the world

In America, "Liberals" are communists, who in a classical economic sense are conservative. But this is far too difficult for most to understand.

I’m actually being way more specific than you.
