On the Fact that (According to Economist, Brian Riedl) the Vast Majority of Farm Assistance Goes to Commercial Farmers with an Average Income of $200,000 and an Average Net Worth of $2,000,000

And these are 2007 figures. Frightening, huh (though not all surprising in that as Public Choice Theory informs us, it is the small politically active class that tends to secure the large government favors - sugar tariffs, for example - while the rest of us pays for them)?

Fact is American needs farmers..... when you are at the produce market, does it really matter to you where the goods came from? Speaking personally..... we shop at at family owned produce market, its our choice because the products come from their fields.
