6. Sadly, our government has sold us out to keep that from happening.
Our international "trade agreements" specifically ban local governments from giving preference to domestic production. If California tried, the federal government could have intervened because the state would have been violating an international treaty.

THIS is why so many of us protest against these trade treaties, and yet we're continually marginalized as kooks by both the mainstream press and middle America. They might wake up some day...but I doubt it.
