    • On May 01, 2010, by liberty69 - The issue here is equal treatment to all farmers of the world. With our government subsidizing our farmers, other country's cannot compete in order to sell their crops and put food in their bellies. Like the Congolese, for instance. American farmer's at least have homes, cars, food, clothes. Developing nations' people do not. Let's give a little bit to help other peoples of this world.
