Agriculture has changed dramatically over the past 80 years, yet farm and commodity programs are Depression-era relics that are grounded in central-planning philosophies. Even some policymakers who claim to be strong proponents of free markets and limited government tend to forget these core beliefs when it comes to these programs.
Agriculture policy is not just limited to these traditional farm and commodity programs that limit choice, stifle innovation, drive up consumer prices, and cost taxpayers billions of dollars a year. It also includes food safety, international trade, environmental policy and property rights, research and innovation, and general issues applicable to all sectors of the economy, such as labor policy.
Every candidate and every political party who fields candidates for public office should both have and publish their position on this camp topic (Agricultural Policy) as a condition for public support, so people know how the candidate proposes to represent them, and they (the people) can hold him (shorthand for all genders) accountable for how their actual representation and votes compare to what their campaign position on this topic was.
Please consider the topic (Agricultural Policy) for which you believe some position should be part of the platform you support.
The point here is to indicate that some position on this topic should be included in a party's platform. Not to indicate, here, what that particular position on the topic is. You can weigh in on specific positions where the links to do that indicate.
