Your View: Farmers should vote for Obama

By John Hurd, North Mankato

— I heard on the farm network that only 25 percent of farmers are voting for Obama. What are they so mad about: the $7.50 per bushel corn or the $15.00 per bushel beans?

Does anyone remember what happened to the price of corn in the 1930s when both Hoover and Roosevelt failed to do a stimulus? It was so cheap that some farmers burned it in the stove.

Vote Obama: It's a no Bainer.
