Audio Transcript

I’m Dr. Peter Theron.
I’m running for Congress to correct the course of our country.

It’s said that if America’s economy sneezes, the rest of the world contracts pneumonia.
Likewise, if America misses a meal, the rest of the world starves.
We have the best cropland, amazing farmers, and an incredibly efficient agricultural ecosystem.

Lockdowns have lowered food stockpiles.
Bad energy policy has increased the cost of growing, processing, and delivering food.
War has cut fertilizer supplies.

In America, fertilizer is usually only the difference between a great yield and merely a good yield. But elsewhere, fertilizer is the difference between a crop and famine.

Drill here. Plant here. Feed the world.

I’m Peter Theron. Food security is national security.
Thank you.
