Stop corn subsidies NOW!

Quit making HFCS so cheap that they can put it in EVERYTHING, especially JUNK FOOD, making UNHEALTHY FOOD cheaper than healthy food.

Subsidize better foods instead. How about making organic fruits and vegetables cheaper instead?

I'd love to buy organics, but they're too expensive AND that's only because there's not enough of it on the market to lower the price.

And put healthy veggie fats BACK into our food supply too.

They wouldn't need all of that salt and HFCS in our processed foods for TASTE if the veggie fats were kept in.

It's not fat that makes you fat anyway, it's the inability to burn off all the freaking CARBS!

No wonder diabetes is at epidemic proportions.

FIX OUR FOOD.

3. Organic food costs and arm, a leg, a pint of blood, and a kidney

Besides, you couldn't get me to eat dark green, leafy veggies if you held a gun to my head. They just won't go down my throat.

7. I grew up in a small farming community.

Chock full of republicans bitching about taxes and freeloaders. But mention cutting farm subsidies and you better run for the hills.
