WE THE PEOPLE of Ohio, hereby declare:

Articles of Sustainability

1. Ohio produces 6 million barrels of oil annually. Ohio ranks fourth in the country in drill wells. Ohio produces 88 billion cubic square feet of natural gas annually. Ohio produces 22 million tons of coal annually. Ohio has the potential to produce 418 million gallons of ethanol annually. Ohio is just now beginning to use wind energy and solar power. Ohio is a large agricultural state with the ability to sustain itself.


2. Ohio has proven oil reserves of 49 million barrels. Larger reserves are estimated to be found in Lake Erie, the Cincinnati Arch, Devonian Shale, Appalachian Basin, and through further exploration and drilling. Ohio has natural gas reserves of a trillion cubic feet, with an estimated 9 trillion cubic feet found in the Devonian Shale that it shares with other states. Ohio has 600 million tons of recoverable coal reserves, that can be liquified for use also. Ohio has some of the largest, unlimited wind reserves in the country to power the whole state, with estimated reserves able to be sold to other states. Ohio has 26 million acres of farmland, 76, 000 farms, and over $5 billion in agricultural commodity output yearly. Ohio has the 2nd largest oil refinery system in the Midwest.


3. Ohio has economic capacity to produce every good for itself.

4. Ohio has major international water ports in the North(Lake Erie) and South(Ohio River) connecting us to the world.

5. Ohio has major international, national, and regional airports connecting us to the world.

6. Ohio is centrally located, being within 500 miles of 50\% of the U.S. population. It has every element of geography from lakes, rivers, mountains, and plains.

7. Ohio has the 7th largest GDP of states and 8th largest personal income. It has one the most productive, skilled labor forces in the country, produces some of the most advanced science students in the country, and is consistently ranked in the upper levels of educational merit output among students in the country. By reducing corporate taxes to 5\% or zero, our factories will be put back to work and Ohio once again will become a global industrial force.


8. Commercially Ohio is a banking, insurance, and educational hub, as well as possessing great potential for tourism in the summer with the lakes and rivers, and winter with the slopes. It has 10 million citizens to support a commercial economy.

9. New alliances and trade agreements can be formed with like-minded breakaway states and nations of the world.

10. The name Ohio is Indian and does not reflect our heritage. Therefore the new name will not be Ohio. Lake Erie, the Ohio River, and other names not reflecting our true heritage will be changed.
