The subsidies we have paid during the highest corn procucing years ware unbelievable. These midwestern folks were the hardest working, most honest people I ever met. Yet,the damn subsidies always led my old girl friend to drive out to dad’s farm to fill her gas tank.

The politicians and bureaucrats want people to become dependent on government subsidies and handouts, and view attempting to be self-sufficient as subversive.

We should have sent Roscoe Filburn to Congress, and shot Wickard.
