The next President needs to make domestic production of everything his top issue.
At this point, if I were President, I’d shut down the EPA and let Big Agriculture build all the fertilizer plants they can build in the US. If Monsanto ran over eco protesters with a bulldozer while laying a fertilizer plant foundation, I wouldn’t care, I’d have a stack if pardons on my desk ready to go for such a situation.
The same for microchips, OTC pharmaceuticals, earth metals, and everything else we need but have shipped production overseas.
We regulated ourselves out of being an independent nation. This is a strategic weakness and it needs to be fixed.
