Opinion

At the turn of the century several members of our congress proposed that we do away with the patent office.  Can you only imagine what has been invented since that time? The non-forward looking members of Congress with no vision decided that everything worthwhile had already been invented; therefore, there was no need to keep the patent office open.  It is easy to make a list of things we use daily that are a result of scientific research done to put a man on the moon.
