Yes, we should colonize the moon. Not only will we have another place to live (help relax the overcrowding on Earth), it's also a good way to "learn" how to colonize. There is a lot of talk about colonizing Mars, but it's something we've never done before. Wouldn't it be easier to colonize the moon first (which is only about 4 days away), rather than jump into Mars (about 6-8 months there, and that's only every 2 years), just in case? The moon is a good starting point to go to Mars, also. We could launch from Earth, go to the moon, refuel, relaunch (in 1/6 Earth gravity, thus using less fuel), and then go to Mars.
Thoughts?

Phil
