Do you foresee the US cutting its ties with overseas suppliers?
Isn't it about time that the US live off of its own land? We have the capabilities to become a self sufficient nation, but we aren't utilizing it.
Noone can be self-sufficient any more in this globalized economy. The economies of different countries are entangled, they do not function independently. Unless the entire financial model is rethinked and modified, along with with all paradigms at place. It may as well be a better thing to do, since financial crises spread in the world even to countries that have nothing to do with it. One large economy does wrong and the negative effects spread around the world, instead of reflecting only to the economy responsible for it. I don't like that either
eventually, though definitely not soon enough. Each nation should be self-sustaining. No one country should have to rely on another for supplies they can get in their own land.
I agree with you both. My main concern is that the US is not only depending upon other countries for supplies (ie. oil, manufacturing) but it is currently in the process of expanding its business elsewhere. This bothers me. If we are to, at some point, become a self sustaining nation, then we shouldn't be promising countries like Brazil that we will be their number 1 customer. We have enough resources to become completely independent and give the current state of the world, if one collapses, we ALL will suffer.
George Washington's forgein policy was said to be, " no forgein policy"...............an idea whose time is past due.
Will it come to pass?...........Probably not in our liberal, "big brother to the world", mentality.
As a nation, we have ALWAYS been self sustaining. Even the small state of Arkansas has:
