So you think USDA should be growing crops, raising cows, instead of supporting farmers? Do you mean the federal government should be doing all the work, instead of sitting in the back doing some supporting job like study how do preserve soil, testing the effect of pesticide, and letting market and individual figure out how to run a farm?
And DOT should own and run all those trucks, trains, airplanes and ships.
And DOE should own run all the power plants...
Isn't this socialism?
