And now, I've just finished reading "The Reagan Diaries" edited by Douglas Brinkley.
I was shocked again by what I read in this book on page 347.
Reagan wrote "Half of farming is outside all government agricultural programs and that half is not having any economic problems. Government has led to the present situation for the other half. Having caused the problem, government HAS to help bail out the VICTIMS now, and then work to return farming to its free market."
The Mission has NOT been accomplished! A mission deferred is a mission LOST.
