Mexican Senator: Buy Corn from Brazil and Argentina, Not United States

Source: Dakota Free Press...SD's True Liberal Media

—Knock knock!
—Who’s there?
—Not Mexican corn buyers, if one Mexican Senator gets his way:


"Farmers have little capacity to absorb further price drops. Grains and other commodities already fetch less than it costs to produce them for many farmers. And there could be long term damage to the agriculture sector. If Mexico finds new suppliers, it may be hard for the U.S. to win back that nation’s business in the future.

Plus, any unsold products that had been destined for Mexico would boost stockpiles in the U.S. That additional supply would put downward pressure on prices unless it can be sold elsewhere ."

1. GOP voters, including farmers, need to remember that "you get what you sow."

2. You get what you vote for.

Elections have severe consequences if the wrong people are voted in. Farmers have always been dependent on big government, but usually vote against it. A free market in agriculture would be the most disastrous thing to happen in ages. As a former South Dakotan, and involved in agriculture, I noticed that most farmers didn't care about anything past their fences unless it effected their income.
