In general, often it is a thin line between a brilliant idea that motivates an entire country to obtain a goal vs. ideas that are just F'ing nuts. The race to the moon is an example where the entire country rallied behind being the first to land on the moon. A Space Force falls into later pile of political BS. Likely several billions will be spent, making a few government contractors very very rich, knowing from day one that they are working on a project that is leading no where, but they are more than willing to take huge sums of money before the project is cancelled due to the laws of physics and other realities.
Trump: "I want a space ship that will go 100 times the speed of light like in that movie "Zombies vs Aliens""
Contractor: "No problem, we'll get started right away. We'll need a few billion to start"
Trump: "The VA has billions in extra cash sitting around, so we'll spend that. Vets are going to die anyway, so they don't need it"
