I would say yes, but the price won't increase very much. In a global economy imports would increase and the American farmer using illegal immigrants would take most the hit. I would also vote to eliminate argiculture subsidies and eliminate all trade barriers to foreign food. For all I know the price of food could drop. Right now the American farmer is being propped up and that is what is applying pressure to the border. My taxes decrease by removing subsidies, and the money the government takes on imports just increases the price of the food. It is like a gasoline tax but on the food instead. Then I'd save a lot of taxpayer money on a giant fence, and from what I hear on this thread... a disfunctional INS. Then I'm helping offset the oil rich countries with increased agriculture in others and richer farmers in third world countries. Sign me up... where do I sign? Where do I vote? Yeah, I know I'm going to be popular with the American farmer... but there is always a market for homegrown fresh food too. It is that Faith in Government that concerns me most... with an increased global economy, the governments are becoming routinely involved in foreign affairs, visits and agreements. The Bush administration certainly has. Those deals, in order to be lawful... require a collective agreement of the people of each country. That is what would propagate democracy. Otherwise government is becoming more and more oppressive as population increases, and global trade increases, but the same quantity of leaders are making the deals over the people. In Iraq the safest day was the day everyone voted... so make every day a day to vote on something. I'm all for what improves lawful ties between the individuals of different countries... thank you for sharing and bringing up the Government's vision with the Amero.
