I say we do NOT need the food imports, the South Americans need the food more and Africans too, let them export it to them.
#1: More factories (the more modern kind, and base them around being pollution free or as much as possible)
#2: A STEEL INDUSTRY! whaaa brought this up, we used to make steel, now China does it for us along with other 3rd world nations
#3: RECYCLING OF WHAT WE USE! Lets go raid the junk yards to get our steel, save on coal and the like.
#4: More solar, wind, and other RENEWABLE energy source systems, thus we can be COMPLETELY self sustaining if resources dry up on us
#5: LESS foreign imports, MORE exports
#6: Less Mc.Donalds and more mom & pop restaraunts, there is one in the town north of me, and WOW! People might sneeze at the price calling it high,
but compared to Mc.Donalds I can get one HUGE burrito, a GIANT glob of pinto and another equaly as large glob of spanish rice with a tortilla and all
smothered in green chile sauce that is homeade. Costs: $6.95, beat that at Mc.Donalds, this sucker keeps me (someone more than 6ft tall) full all day.
#7: NO corporate farms, we do NOT need these giant thousand acre farms that grow only one crop and pollute like crazy because of overuse of
fertilizers and because the farm is non-crop rotation and destroys the land. WE NEED MORE FAMILY FARMS! THEY SUSTAINED US FOR OVER 150 YEARS WITHOUT
ANY TROUBLE AT ALL! WE STILL HAD SURPLUSS IF YOU LOOK AT THE RECORDS OF EXPORTS! Such as WW2, we had trouble producing because all the farmers were
drafted, yet we still managed just fine... I rest my case.
#8: NO exporting of weapons, NO exporting of technology that can be used for weapons. No bullets or tank shells either or anything of the sort, they
are still components.
#9: We need more family owned business, not monopolies and corporations that only serve themselves
#10: We need to uphold the laws and taxes for once, keep them from passing the buck, and make them pay their taxes for once without passing it to the
