It's been said that if we stopped eating meat, and used the land for growing vegetables instead of meat, it would solve the starvation problems in the third-world-countries. That to me is a very strong argument in favor of being vegan.

Balderdash.

From what I have heard, the surplus you speak of is that of corn and soy. Those are the US's biggest, and only export crops. The problem is though, these grains are genetically engineered now-a-days, which I wont touch with a ten foot pole. And neither will Europe, or Africa, or any other country. The government is not my source, or guide in these matters. They used to allow hemp farming too, but the good 'ole boys over at DuPont decided that we needed to start using nylon instead. Thus the switch from natural to synthetic.

How much produce at your local grocery store actually comes from inside the US? Everything seems to be coming from South America these days, where the laws regulating the farmers are not good.

All of those bushels of corn which are in surplus, have no nutritional value anymore. The soil is depleted.
