Northern Idaho Is A Mineral Rich Area.

From what I read, several years ago, the Chinese government has already bought {using U.S. dollars}some working Gold/Silver mines in Idaho, and are shipping, by rail and ship, un-processed ore back to China to be processed in China.

Here is an old bookmark I saved on American "duty free" zones:

A U.S. List of free trade zones:

Gold backed/{redeemable?} Chinese Yuan would replace the U.S. dollar in international trade, because it would have no liability attached to it.
Every U.S. dollar is "borrowed" into existence, which makes it a liability on future U.S. tax payers, kind of like a credit card debt that cannot be paid off because the debt is way to high.
