This is a true story: One day, two doctors were talking about politics. The younger doctor said, I’m not interested in politics. And the older doctor replied, The problem is politics is interested in you.
Hog farmers have learned the hard way that politics is interested in us. Political groups attack us, like the Waterkeepers and Policy Watch – and the same groups fight to stop important legislation that helps farmers, like the Farm Bills that have been passed by the General Assembly.
And, of course, those same political groups want to see candidates elected who agree with them on farming issues, and who will oppose legislation like bills to protect farmers from frivolous lawsuits.
Yes, politics is interested in hog farming. And that’s why, next Tuesday, on Election Day, your vote matters. Vote. And vote Pro-Ag.
