amen. where do I sign up?

unfortunately, i don't think Romney will be better (or worse) than Obama or his predecessors on this issue. Unfortunately gaming the system seems to have broad bipartisan support - Bridge to nowhere, Solyndra, earmarks.

i heard the beginning of a radio show the other day that said that govt subsidies have dramatically shaped the foods that are grown and therefore the foods that comprise our diets. i'd never thought about that, but it's probably true. and sad.

FGT, read the chapter on corn in The Omnivore's Dilemma for more on the ways government policy and the dictates of agribusiness shape our diets.

There are some good blogs in cyberspace that discuss this aspect.
