+ - Ron Paul Survival Reports Released 2

Submitted by
Veinor writes "The New Republic has released several scans of Ron Paul's old Survival Reports, as well as other miscellaneous documents, dating from 1978 to 1995. Many of the quotes, such as in the November 1990 article where Martin Luther King is called "a world-class adulterer" who "seduced underage girls and boys" and "replaced the evil of forced segregation with the evil of forced integration," and the January 1994 edition, where he claims gay men with AIDS "enjoy the attention and pity that comes with being sick," could potentially damage the Republican presidential hopeful's bid."

+ - Obama Education Plan Funded Through NASA Cuts

Submitted by PBM
PBM (974731) writes "2008 presidential candidate Barack Obama has just released his education platform (PDF) and is calling for $18 billion in early education funding. The plan cites the importance of Sputnik for inspiring the development of strong American scientists and stresses the need for better math and science education. There's just one catch: the $18 billion is primarily funded by delaying NASA's Project Constellation (Ares launch vehicle) development for 5 years, effectively postponing US lunar colonization. Is a candidate's proposed NASA funding something that would change your vote, and could it ever affect the general election?"
