I LOVED the commercial and I know first hand the work and lifestyle as well as the sacrifice farmers make.

But there is a lot of truth in the "Welfare" comment also. Face it guys, there is 'Big Farm" and it's a HUGE Washington lobby.

Who do you REALLY think is the behind the Ethanol mess. The Corn Farmers lobby, that's who.

Farming is America. And it CAN survive without tax payers subsidies and political influence.

There's no sense is arguing over this. Both sides are speaking the truth.

Times have changed since 1978 when the speech originated. Politics, government, and farming have all changed.

The commercial was awesome, the message was tainted due to the product being endorsed ---> DODGE.


I disagree some things have change while many remain the same. The message holds the same meaning if not more today than in 78. also Dodge, i think went out of thier way to not be the spotlight in the ad. Like i said, you wont find many if any company this day and time that would risk even mentioning "God" and for sure not like was done in this ad. My hats off to Dodge for doing so.
I prefer to give credit where credit is due, when its wrong, but also when its right

The farm subsidy was the foundation for the "Conservative, Southern Democrat".

Democrats like Al Gore Sr. saw a nitch in bringing home "Pork" for the "Working man/farmer".

They played the same game as city Democrats but instead of programs for minorities and dead beats, they guaranteed income for farmers through subsidies govt. price fixing.

It's all govt. tax and spend and anti-free market principles applied to farming instead of welfare. Just like the city Dems, they secured a voting block and power as a result.

It's all the same politics only your wear flannel or a bolo in place of a tie ;\)

That's not to say farming is a tough and honest living. It's the poster of the American dream. But you can't ignore the HUGE roll politics and democrats, specifically have played in the history of the American farm.

Cargill, Monsanto and Dupont are not in it for the love of country ;\)

If somebody blinked at the wrong time, they'd not even known it was a Dodge truck commercial. I thought it was done with taste and was pleasantly surprised to see something on current TV that supported values and decency.

Neither are NBC, CBS, ABC, FOX, Remington, Savage, Bushmaster, or any other corporation or business in the USA.

I didn't see any FORD commercials promoting GOD or hard working farmers.


One thing is for dam sure. This farmer hasn't taken any welfare. And all of my Dodges are pre bailout. \:D

If you guys are going to play the bail out card, the way I see it is you have two choices. Either buy a Ford or a good horse. Me personally, I would hands down rather have a good horse.
