And now you can post something that is on topic.

You see this all the time. These farmers will continue to support & vote for conservatives who have done nothing but threaten their livelihood. They will never learn so really, I feel no sympathy for them.

That's true.

They might stay home on election day, but they WON'T vote for a Democrat in large numbers. Not for a generation at least.

What livelihood? They have become corporate tools supplying foriegn markets and whole sale buyers with mass produced crops and specialized fields. Farmers sold out for money.

What do you mean done nothing for them?

They constantly tell them they are the salt of the earth, the backbone of America.

They tell tell them that the city liberals are out to get them, that bunch of crooks and socialists. Not like the salt of the earth types getting farm subsidies.

Well when the other side is calling them "deplorable," wants to restrict their gun rights, etc., that is what we get. The country gets worse off every year because both parties use wedge issues and insults to keep groups on their side in the polls.

They’re whining because they aren’t getting enough taxpayer subsidies, something the liberals love to dish out.

Rising fuel prices will shut down most of global trade. Many factors are combining to end mechanized megafarming: aquifer depletion, climate change, soil erosion, pests becoming immune to pesticides, etc. Small farms with human and animal labor will return and become most of the economy. Subsistence farming is a life of poverty, but it's better than the nation starving to death.
