The New Deal And Farming

The New Deal, arguably one of the nation's biggest travesties, gave hardworking farmers subsidies.  This is one thing that tipped the scale toward the entitlement mentality we now enjoy.  Now we have corporate "farmers" in three piece suits getting major subsidies from the government.  Meanwhile, small farmers are choked by regulation and red tape.  Perhaps that is the way they wanted it?

That's EXACTLY the way they wanted it, though a lot of decent medium-sized farmers have gotten trapped in the system. We need to phase out ALL subsidies in ALL businesses and then not allow any products into this country from nations that subsidize their country's products.
