From 'Tharon Chandler' for US House, 2012; on January 28.

     Other developing countries in this world do not treat their own people so poorly, as sometimes happens in the USA, and some other bountiful countries do look toward 'agrarian reform' as a part of their needful 'economic reform'. Too many persons in Tenessee, and/ or 'the Old South', look at any proposed policy in terms of 'what it gives away to the "minority"; and thus too many poor whites and others living 'under the poverty line' must miss out on good potential reforms such as a new chance to Farm their own Land. Every citizen deserves a chance to own a home and a chance to farm the land. The typical problems that have ruined opportunities for family farmers in the USA have historicly  included  'local bank interests', corporate interest in world or international commodities markets, and some secret 'world view' schemes that might imagine they can 'best allocate' the airable land for the 'proper' crop cycles.

To look at the first example of 'agrarian reform' in the USA (but certainly not the first in the world)  it did include a racial element as it also does now in western Tennessee. From encyclopedia online : {40 acres and a mule refers to the short-lived policy, during the last stages of the American Civil War in 1865, of providing arable land to black former slaves who had become free as a result of the advance of the Union armies into the territory previously controlled by the Confederacy, particularly after Major General's William Tecumseh Sherman's "March to the Sea." General Sherman's Special Field Orders, No. 15,[1] issued on January 16, 1865, provided for the land, while some of its beneficiaries also received mules from the Army, for use in plowing.[2] Forty acres (16 hectares) is a standard size for a rural family plot, being a sixteenth of a section (square mile), or a quarter quarter-section, under the Public Land Survey System used on land settled after 1785. The combination of a 40 acre plot and a mule was widely recognized as providing a sound start for a family farm}. Now the chance to farm in Tennessee does include a good proportion of black persons living in west TN.

Any good person and every unemployed person and anyone living 'below the poverty line' (= $ 22,050 per anum for a family of 4) in Tennessee and elsewhere in the USA Deserves a chance to farm for a living and by this I mean to say 'subsistence farming' or the means to provide sustenence for family survival and to have a bit left over for the common market. Not withstanding the polution and collusion and the usury and other negative effects of 'big Agribusiness' and corporate ownership of farm markets; Local farming provides much more diversity in potential crop yields and better potential 'freshness'; and usually a common place to keep funds more so 'local'.

Now, it is my contention as a candidate for the US House from Tennessee [Iowa]  that in Western tennessee their is a plenty of 'airable land', that can be good selection for 'subsistance'  type farming, and that is currently Not being used at any 'higher potential' value with regard to the 'common good' in...  um ,  Iowa .
