Politics What happened?

I went to the space center today. Saw videos of Kennedy and the Apollo space programs and Reagan and the Space shuttle missions and so many Americans united and proud. Today I see nothing but division and discord and partisan bickering. And yes I am guilty of that too. What happened?

Apparently we've figured out there is little actual opportunity for being able to rocket people we don't like off to another planet and finally being rid of them.

Politicians found that the more they gave people the more they got reelected.
Things like the space program had to be cut to allow more handouts. Handouts and re-election were worth more to the politicians.

Two things- First, we lost a spirit of national unity and sacrifice. I realize that's half of what you're saying, but it's true. JFK could seriously say "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country", and that "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth." and the nation would so commit itself. Now, we can barely commit to a magazine subscription as a nation.
Second, honest answer, we started helping black people. We could get, as a nation, bipartisan support for rockets and beating the Soviets and for helping white people, but President Johnson made eliminating racial injustice part of his Great Society, and there went what national unity there still was.

E: While the above reasons are correct, they're overshadowed by your own observer(?) bias. You can see how we're bickering, and you can see what they achieved, but you don't see how much they bickered, and how many people thought space exploration was a waste of money.
