Dirt isn't a big problem, nor are the other materials.

The premise has been examined by Andy Weir in his fiction book "The Martian", which shows that you can survive on relatively little. I am making the assumption that he did his chemistry and biology homework whilst writing this :-)

Elon Musk is Jewish, so he's probably going to want to send a bunch of Jews there to set up settlements before anyone has time to object.

Well, having Mars as New Israel would be one way of fixing the Middle East wars....

It would be easier to move the Palestinians there though, as there's less of them.

That was to a certain extent true in England too.

If Scotland went independent, every English voter I spoke to made it clear their view would be "Good Riddance" and that they expected England to negotiate the best possible deal i.e. no sharing the pound unless it could be proven to be economically advantageous for England, making it advantageous for Scottish firms to relocate South of the Border etc.

In staying, I think the Scots made the right long term decision.

The UK is a very fascist country, not free at all. It is ruled by evil Lords and a corrupt politican caste and voters have a choice between evil and evil.

FTFY:
The USA is a very fascist country, not free at all. It is ruled by wealthy business and a corrupt politican caste and voters have a choice between evil and evil.
