The US is a non producing country. Look around you and check where everything is made. Everything is import, and therefore, if you shut all the borders (or other countries shut them which can happened any time) you will be left with no diapers, food, alcohol, and even a lot of your water and electrical is import to, so be carefull what you whish for! <br><br>_________________________________________<br>http://www.geocities.com/djstefan/bush.gif
