Farm Aid Says Vote For Family Farmers
This is the message I received this morning in my email box from Farm Aid reminding us to think about our family farmers when we vote. I have cut and pasted it here so you can see exactly what they say:
Vote for Family Farmers
"Tomorrow's the day when you can shape America's future: Election Day 2008! Each of us has issues that we feel are important to our country, state, county, and town or city. For all of us at Farm Aid, family farmers and the good food they grow are our top priorities. Election day is your chance to pick the candidate that cares about the things that you care about - like family farmers and good food.
If you haven't already read it, check out our Ask Hilde column to find out where John McCain and Barack Obama stand on family farm and food issues.
Visit CanIVote.org for information on your polling location and local voting rules. Make your voice heard!'
Now, how can we ignore Willie Nelson, Neil Young, Dave Matthews and John Mellencamp? We can't!!!! They have been working to help our family farmers for 23 years and we can help them through our vote.
