    The corporations, like Monsanto are trying like hell to control the seed industry. Whoever controls the food controls the people. If our nations farms become corporate property the people of this country will be at the will of the corporate monopoly.

    We all love our farms and farmers. We know they work hard. However, THE SUBSIDIES WE OFFER FARMERS SHOULD BE MONITORED. The fact is that if the government subsidizes one industry, they need to subsidize ALL industries, and that's crazy. Why is the government many trillions in debt and yet so many farmers in this country are flush with cash? THIS MAKES NO SENSE.

    Farm subsidies is centralized economic planning and amounts to corporate welfare. End all federal subsidies and allow food products to compete for space in the free market.

    We all eat, simple as that. From the poorest to the richest, we all depend upon our farms to live. Through the use of subsidies and insurance guarantees, we can encourage and enforce a healthy, sustainable agriculture ecology. Through education and programs, we can further improve our farming as well. After all, 100 years ago, a farm used a plow and oxen. Who knows what farms will use in another?
