Fracking is allowed in the US, foods are being affected by this practice, the land will be polluted. California's drought pushed many to use mine tailings.

Apparently that was against NAFTA due to not being in NAFTA documents from 94. Bombardier subsidy etc

It's long past time someone actually stood up to the southern bullies. we may have a close neighbour to trade with but why do we keep kissing their ***es just to have our dollar devalued? why are we the 51st state anyway?
