I feel like all farm subsidies should be abolished. If your business depends on government subsidies to survive then you have a poor business model.
Only if you wish to see the family farm disappear and the multinational owned mega-farms take their place. Something also would help the family farms is re-instituting the New Deal restrictions on Wall Street speculation of commodities.
There you go again praising the socialist New Deal. Pres.Rosevelt was a Socialist. I don't know why you want to keep handing out the Taxpayers'mymoney. The new deal didn't work, neither does socialism.
FDR was a DEMOCRATIC SOCIALIST So am I, but the better question is "why aren't you"?
Well Seaweed where do I start.
I remember after the last Presidentual election hereing a Obama supporter stateing;"I'm so happy Barac was elected. Now I don't have to worry about my
mortgage, my car payment, my bill. Are you kidding me? If I was what you suggest, I would gladly hand over my paycheck and feel good know would help support those who just don't want to work. To know that we could be a part of the world community and pay for all the pragrams that the Secratary Gen. would no where the best place for my funding to go. The *#@! with that. I'm tired of this free loader nation. The entitlement that Socialist Democrats fill that you deserve
is breaking our country. Enough with spending by gov't that we have to borrow. ENOUGH!
FDR's new deal helped get us out of the Great Depression, and prevented any major decline in our economy for 50 years. Once the systematic dismantling of the New Deal programs , started by Reagan began to turn our country over to the corporatist, was that greed allowed to overtake what we had and provided the largest transfer of wealth from the working class to the uber-rich the world has ever seen. Plain and simple. Just amazed you can[t see that.
If you think this country's problems stem from the social safety net, you are very, very misinformed indeed. You must listen to Fox a lot.
The financial problems of this country start with the HUGE 65% of our budget that goes to the military, and corperate greed that allows us to give tax incentives to corporations for sending our jobs overseas.
Try looking at our situation through real life , instead of Fox.
As to FDR, even his Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, in 1939, stated, "We are spending more money than we have ever spent before, and it does not work. After eight years we have just as much unemployment as when we started, and an enormous debt to boot."
Sound familiar! The left will always choose doctrine over reality, no matter what! And, repeat the same mistakes over and over, hoping for a different outcome. Einstein's definition of insanity.
Seeweed, been smoking the really bad weed, again, have you! I don't know where you get the 65 percent of the budget goes to the military, but in this dimension, in 2010, it was 18.74 percent.
