China Widens Lead as World's Top Food Producer

Via BusinessDay:
China extended its position as the world’s leading food producer in 2008, when its agricultural production jumped 30%, measured by value, World Trade Organization data show.

Chinese farm production rose to $759,94 billion in 2008, the latest year for which figures are available, from $584,25 billion in 2007, according to a note by the WTO secretariat, circulated on the WTO website and dated February 23.


US agricultural production was $311,23 billion in 2007, the latest year for which data are available, up from $246,57 billion in 2006 - China was already ahead of the US in 1995 when the WTO series starts.

America's decline into oblivion doesn't have to be inevitable, but it will be if something drastic isn't done, and soon. Just putting more republican fannies in congressional seats isn't going to cut it, as they have proven themselves to be little better than their democrat counterparts.

One sure way to not just slow or even halt our seemingly inexorable slide into history's already crowded gutter, but to actually reverse it thus ultimately returning this nation to prosperity and global prominence, would be to simply rip out the hideous and confiscatory federal income tax system that is driving our retreat, and replace it with the FairTax.

As I see it, the FairTax is America's last great hope not just for its very survival, but to also return it to being the prosperous and free nation it once was.

I have no doubt that eventually the American people are going to reach the same conclusion.

The only question is, will it be in time?
