National Security and Imports.

America is dependent upon foreign countries for much of its oil. Iran had in the 1970's a solidly pro American government. Today it is vehemently anti American.We can not count on America's allies to remain stable and to maintain an alliance with us. we should be developing our own energy sources. Additionally, having foreign countries manufacturing components of our military equipment is fraught with danger. We can not count on our allies to guard the secrets of military technology entrusted to them. In the military sphere we should be manufacturing and developing our own equipment. The web of treaties into which America has entered that limit our national sovereignty could come back to haunt us. Who in the two major parties cares about these important questions?
