37. But What About American Farmers?
You say we close our markets to agricultural products and "we subsidize our own agricultural products which ends up destroying the one industry many developing nations have, both coming and going (by not letting them sell here, and by undercutting them in their own markets)."

If I understand you correctly, won't that be the end of our already subsidized American farmers? Frankly, I'm not as interested in foreign farmers as in our own. I think our "free-trade" agreements just end up giving other countries advantages over us. I'm not sure that in today's world we can afford to keeping doing that.
