I read an article about ehanol co-ops in rural America. How they can help us to become more energy efficent. They talked about redirecting subsidized funds already going to the farming community right back to the farmers to produce ethanol distilleries. Redirecting wouldnt cost us anymore money. America needs to become more self sufficent and less reliable onto other countries for our energy. It would bring more prosperity to our farmers. This prosperity could also help the farmers to be able to supply more farmers markets and more organic produce at lower costs. It would take time to bring this all forward but it would be our future. Less reliance on oil imports, healthier citizens via less processed foods, that would help future generations in healthcare cost. What are your thoughts on this? Do you think it is time as americans we start pushing the government towards doing what is better for us as a nation then what is better for their pocketbooks?
