All we need is free land.

There are 2,260,994,361 acres of land in the United States.
There are 922,095,840 acres of farmland in the United States.
There are 308,745,538 people in the United States.
That's enough land so that every person in the United States has about 3 acres of farmland.
That's 130,680 square feet of farmland per person. (plus 188901 sq. ft. of "other" land)

With that much land, we could all plant huge gardens and own some livestock. We would never need to go to a grocery store again. Good bye Wal-Mart!

Chop down some trees and build a house. If you don't have that many trees, I'll give you any extra I have. If you don't know how to build a house, I'll help you. Good bye Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac!

The average mortgage payment in the US is around $20,244 per year. The average American spends about $2,078 on food per year. That's $22,322 per year that could be saved if the government had the humanity to allow us the basic human right to reside on free land.

These are just basic needs. Sure we might not be able to fully get rid of currency all together at this early stage of human development, and become fully self-sufficient while satisfying all of our wants and needs, but if we just had free land, the economy might not be our enemy any more. We are part of this Earth, and what is part of the Earth belongs to the people, not greedy corporations. We should be entitled to what is rightfully ours without being at the mercy of those who want to make a profit.
