    When the gov’t is deciding who is wealthy and who isn’t when handing out goodies, then its time to rethink the subsidies in the first place.
    I know that in general, we do the best job of growing stuff of all the countries in the world. That said, there has to be a better way of doing it than paying some farmers to grow some things and paying them not to grow other things.
    In this instance, the wealthier farmers are most likely the most efficient and successful over the course of time, so if we were handing out anything to anyone, then it should go to them as a reward for being successful. But then the wealthier and bigger farmers are going to squeeze out the little guys and reduce choices and increase prices.
    I just feel a bit queezy when the gov’t is helping decide winners and losers when doling out our tax money.
