Anti government blindness

My sister’s best friend in Oregon likes to send out anti-government email. She used to put the addresses in the to field until I started using reply all to answer her! That royally pissed-off some of her friends, who couldn’t deal with any actual facts.

Anyway, she just sent out the following email:

Government against small farmers

http://www.anh-usa.org/government-against-farmers/

Here’s a clickable link to the article

I answered her

People like you just amaze me.  You send out an
article about how large agri-business is using
gov't to hurt small farmers and then you blame ...
wait for it ... government!  You apparently don't
even see the corporations that are the real danger
to small farmers.  The people who commented at the
end of the article have it figured out a lot
better than you do: they know who to really fear:
large corporations.  Tester and Hagen are members
of our government who are trying to help small
farmers, but that part of government gets no
credit from you at all.

You are simply blinded by your biases and
incapable of seeing where the real danger lies.

She immediatly answered me, having understood nothing
