    Why are animals still branded in 2020? There are much better ways to keep track. Why cause inhumane pain to track by number when modern technology can provide a more humane solution.

    Vote for Trump if you believe China is a real threat not only to US but also to the world. Biden Family has unethical ties to China and he does not speak against China on China Virus.

    Theres more than just economic reasons to get the vote out this year!! But as far as the economy goes why would you vote twice for the guy who destroyed it in the first place? Most republicans in resent memory the only return you get is usually a recession!! Wake up!!

    Instead of the 37 billion stimulus handouts to farmers let's hope they're ready to earn and sell their products.

    This is the most important post you will ever read.

    Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers.. Yet this is only four of our many transgressions.

    The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good deeds because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

    Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ left his throne in heaven and came to this earth. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved. Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake. Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’.. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he conquered death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace ;

    Except a gift can either be accepted or rejected..So this is what you must do in response;

    Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him, and through gratitude in the sacrifice of his son, repent (turn away) from your old way of life. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward (Romans 10:9).

    Do these things, and you will be saved.

    If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife.

    You’ve been informed; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you spend ETERNITY, meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make; And all of us here, whether believer or atheist, know deep down that every last word here is true.

    Jesus Christ awaits YOU this very moment; don’t even think about sleeping tonight until you surrender your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed.. And as it is written (Hebrews 9 : 27);

    ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’.

    All glory, honor and praise to Lord Jesus Christ.

    Trump paid farmers for their losses because of the tariffs. But he made people wait in line for a box of food during the pandemic. And he forced millions of Americans off of foodstamps by making it difficult for workers to make DFCS meetings, interviews, and renewals.
    This really hurt the poor.
    And the damage he did to
    the EBT program will take a while to repair. People don't realize that EBT doesn't just feed poor and underpaid people, it pays owners and stock holders for grocery stores and chains, it pays farmers, and it pays the industries that develop seeds, fertilizer, pesticides, and it helps pay for farming equipment and other farming infrastructure.
    Our farmers feed much of the world. There is no reason why anyone should go hungry in our country. People should be encouraged to develop organic homesteading, so we can have better quality food.
    And we should subsidies food with the EBT program. Farmers should grow for quality, not quantity. Capitalism has ruined the agricultural industry in the United States. Our food has become increasingly toxic , and tasteless. And it has become less nutritious. Runoff from farms who use toxic chemicals to produce the most per acre, is destroying our rivers, lakes and oceans. There is a better way, and we should seek it out. Farming should not be about gambling. Farmers should be paid for their work regardless of the weather.

    Many, many Trump supporters are voting for:

    HERD IMMUNITY = Covid death rate out of control = 235,159+.

    THEFT = Billionaire pays $750 a year on tax and hires criminals.

    RACISM = Aug 2017 Very fine people on both sides..

    Donny the Dummy, removed funding for both the WHO and the US pandemic task force.

    Taiwan, New Zealand and China all used the WHO 3 point no-vaccine plan and are Covid-free.

    6 failed businesses are proof of Trump being a 6 time failure.

    235,159+ Dominated American deaths later and Trump is a 7 time failure! Vote Biden..

    Do you have $200,000? What about your mum, dad, friends and neighbours?

    Trump paid $750 tax last year. You work hard, pay tax and then pay a tax cheat's Covid bill.

    US Covid = 235,159+ Taiwan = 7 (x33,594) New Zealand = 25 (x9406) China = 4,634 (x50)..

    America sells more to Australia than we sell back .
    So by Trumps logic we should put a tax on all your goods .
    This first farmer has had over half of his profits taken away by Trump's trade war against China and Trump will NEVER win so he can expect to go under by the time Trump leaves office if he wins again .
    What an idiot .
    You have a trade surplus with Australia .
    We have a trade surplus with china .
    You can't be in front with every country in the world .
    Not going to happen .
    Trump is poisoning the minds of people and bringing them down .
    Trump is not a business man and never will be .
