First of all you blame R-Calf for being isolationists. Canadian Agriculture is run by socialistic government that dictates quotas and subsidizes the cattle industry to the hilt. Your govt. doesn't care about the problems of US cattlemen, mainly inflation and loss of export markets. They glom onto our greedy, mafia owned, vertically integrated meat packers and start subsidizing them to the hilt. Is your govt. going to set quotas for them too or are they going to use them to suck billions more dollars out of the US which is already broke. I've got a right to bitch I just bought a John Deere mower. It cost a hell of a lot. Then I found out it was made in Canada and all I did was make a bunch of Canadians rich. If you think trade is so good for the US why don't you start buying about 60 billion more from the US so we can have fair trade? I'm damn glad to have R-calf sticking up for US cattlemen. I doubt if they can solve the big problems of dealing with socialists, but at least they are trying. Answer me this. How can a free market economy work when you have free trade with a socialst govt. controled economy? Now wonder Candian cattle, dairy cattle and hogs are so much cheaper than ours. So in effect what you want is for your govt. to contol the price of US cattle. Right?
