Going after the right targets

Instead of complaining about Haliburton in Iraq, the Left would do better for Iraq by attacking agricultural subsidies. This would target

  • Large American corporations, who receive the large majority of the subsidies
  • Politically connected “fat cats” (such as those who benefit from sugar tariffs)
  • Reduce the deficit (Leftists as budget hawks! It may only be because there’s a Republican government but there you are)
  • Help Iraq and many others in the third world.

It’s an almost perfect compendium of current Leftist thinking. Why aren’t they out campaigning on this issue?
