Food production in America is fast shutting down. Where will our food come from?

We are seeing a rapid decline in America’s ability to feed itself. America is fast becoming a nation where food production is not sustainable in the long term. You won’t hear it from the farm state politicians, or anyone running for office because it’s a matter they don’t want to address.

Unless steps are taken, lack of food may soon hit the American population. Your bag of gold is useless at Kroger if there is nothing on the shelves.

Government involvement has a long history of damaging anything it touches. Good ideas generally go bad when government gets involved. Consider for example that corn is the largest crop grown in America. Last year, 45 percent of the nation’s corn crop went straight to your gas tank in the form of ethanol. This year it will be more. It’s happening because the government requires it and may soon even require more.
