Reduce USA's trade deficit and increase our DP Gand median wage.

The president’s state of the union speech.

I’m a proponent of a policy based upon Warren Buffett’s unilateral Import Certificates concept. His market, (not government) driven concept would significantly reduce USA’s trade deficit of global goods, be of no net expense to our federal budget, act as a subsidy of our exports and would increase our aggregate sum of imports plus exports.
The president’s state of the union speech mentioned negotiated global trade agreements.

We alone as a sovereign nation should determine what may enter our domestic markets and similarly we should respect the sovereignty of foreign nations and treat them equally to each other;
(But we may grant lesser treatment to products of nations that are unfriendly to our own or our allies’ governments or products).

I posted a petition entitled on the White House’s “We the people” web site to “reduce USA's trade deficit and increase our GDP and median wage". I’m requesting that others read it. They may sign or submit a contrary petition.
The petition’s site is http://wh.gov/dBww .

If a petition meets the signature threshold, it will be reviewed by the Administration and we will issue a response.

For reference:
google: “wikipedia, import certificates “

or refer to the topic
