A Republican friend of mine from Kentucky joined the Tea Party Express. Several years ago when George W. Bush was president he was worried that the USA and the European Union would drastically reduce farm subsidies so that Third World countries might have the opportunity to export their agricultural products here. He said at the time, "It's true that billions of dollars of farm subsidies each year gives American farmers an unfair competitive advantage over farmers from impoverished nations. However, if farm subsidies are cut, the farm states should still get their due in the form of money for conservation."
