We could save North America by creating a North American Co Prosperity Economic Sphere and trading only between the countries of North America for the time being. Food, Industry, Clothing, would be abundant and we could still hold on to capitalism. We need to stop buying product from China and put our people back to work. It can be done, and we should just set out to do it. Over the years I have said I would run for president (I was never serious since I am just an average guy.) with a campaign built upon protectionism. We need to protect our people first, and it is about time that a non Republican and non Democrat stands up and says so(I never vote for parties, just the candidate or the issues. A platform to unify the continent would really wake up the people of these neighboring countries). PUT NORTH AMERICANS TO WORK FOR NORTH AMERICA AND FREEDOM AND STABILITY. Mexico and Central America are wallowing in poverty when they could be producing product a lot cheaper than China can with all of their Communist subsidies to their workers. If you want to see Communism collapse put people to work in real jobs. That is the best remedy for dreams of socialist utopias. Why we are subsidizing a Communist dictatorship in China right now when we should be putting people to work on our continent is beyond rational understanding. We used to want to be good neighbors with the countries to the south of us. Now, we shun them in place of assisting a Communist "Utopia." By they way, if we could create a North American Co Prosperity Sphere, I would extend an offer to England and Ireland to join us if they wanted to break away from Germany dominated Europe. If Greenland and Iceland wanted to join, I'd welcome them, too. Not much population there, but Europe certainly has not done them any favors. Consider me a candidate until somebody who is better looking offers to run on my platform.
