    So, I for one support Comrade Trump going full Stalin on you and redistributing massive amounts of your tax dollars to some losers who can't make it in the free market on their own.

    But if we are going to be consistent here, we should be spitting on these useless bums rather than paying for their food stamps. If I ever wind up on a farm next time I'm in the US (I'm into banjos and sodomy), I'm going to make some fat hillbilly cunt do push ups for money and then refuse to pay him like I'm Khabib.

    What say you Americans - are you happy to subsidize the chewing tobacco addiction of these moochers who refuse to get a real job? Should we be focusing our hatred instead on immigrants who contribute more tax revenue than they take out and have productive jobs?

    You've obviously never met any midwest farmers.
    They'd kick your ass for fun and then go have some breakfast.

    We should refer to these dirty parasites from now on as 'rural youths'.

    Farmers over here in the U.K. are loaded but still moan about how much they’re gonna lose every year due to it being too hot or too cold

    My family used to have some old farmland - maybe 80 acres. The gov't would send us a check to NOT farm it.

    Pretty sweet deal. My cousins and I turned it into a quad racing course.

    Southerners are waaaaay tougher than midwesterners, brah.

    But we're both tougher than northeasterners and west-coast pussies.

    Sugar cane farmers in Florida have been subsidized since way before Trump though.

    Cuban sugar is a lot cheaper but we can't buy it.

    I'm not against Trump's America-first policies, which include subsidizing American farmers, bc I do feel like we have been taken advantage of by the Chinese.

    I just don't see a trade war as being the solution. Sure, it works with weaker countries like Mexico, but it's hard to see the end game with China. They've already pulled out of serious negotiations until they see who wins the election.

    Farmers everywhere are subsidized but these are massive re-distributive payments on top of existing generous subsidies. If Obama tried to pull this shit, the Repubs would be absolutely losing their shit (like Trump, knowing that these retarded hillbilly fucks would vote for them no matter how badly they screw 'em).

    Really good for our hillbillies though. We get to cut in and sell the shit that you can't sell to the Chinese any more all the while getting you to protect us from them if they ever stop wanting to pay for it. It's a pretty neat scam we've been running, but unfortunately our retarded Republicans are fucking it up.

    Because they know they will be able to walk all over anyone not named Trump. I'm guessing they are assuming he has very little chance at winning in 2020.

    If anything, hopefully Trump's efforts have shown our politicians that you don't have to be a fucking pussy when it comes to these negotiations.

    Nothing Trump has done in regards to China has worked thus far

    Farm subsidies are the reason for the immigration 'crisis'.

    Being 'taken advantage of' by the Chinese? You've been pulling down everybody's pants and buttfucking them on trade since WW2 - the entire global system is based around it. Vassal countries like mine do alright out of it too obviously, but you still rape us on certain things. When the US was on the rise, the UK would accuse you of doing the exact same things that you accuse the Chinese of doing now.

    This is not about trade, it's about hegemony, like it was then. The goal is not get a 'fair' deal with China, it's to try to ruin its economy enough to make it submit or force it into a war before it gets too strong.

    The problem for the US is mostly Trump's fault and partially the Democrats fault. Trump is a retard because he's trying to fight everyone else at the same time, when he easily could've co-opted allies into taking on China. The Democrats are retards because the Russian conspiracy wrecks any chance of breaking up the Russian-Chinese alliance, which is needed for a full-scale war with China to be viable.

    I grew up on a farm, lots of farmers in the family. But these subsidies are going to "farmers" who are already multi-millionaires.
    The family farm is slowly crawling towards death in the US. The cost of entry is too high, and you can't compete with the economies of scale that the corporate farms bring and the subsidization that they receive.

    End farm subsidies. America needs farmers.
