"Dead Men Farming" by John Stossel--Great rant against US farming subsidies! (9/2007)


In his usual outraged yet commensensical way, ABC's John Stossel rips a big hole in arguments favoring govt subsidies of farmers and farming. As long as we cannot reform this ripoff, we can't reform our government at any fundamental level.

(Warning: The link goes to Townhall.com, a conservative/Republican site; I'm a Libertarian, not a conservative or a Republican, but that's just where Stossel's columns happen to be published--though he himself is also libertarian, not conservative or partisan in his reporting. So if you're not a conservative or Republican either, just put up with it.)
