Letter to the Editor

Letter right about GOP, farmers

Sunday, December 26, 2004

To the editor:

Just an admiring word for the insight of Jennifer St.Clair in her Dec. 8 letter. She says it all in four sentences:

"The family farmer is an endangered breed. ... Farmers who think the Bush administration and the Republican Congress represent their interests and share their values should think again. In four years, fewer of you will remain, and those who struggle on will be even more endangered than they are now. To find politicians who are sympathetic to the needs of the farmer, you must look elsewhere than the GOP.
