As soybean farmers gather around their Thanksgiving tables tomorrow, let them give thanks to the cancer many of them voted for:
President Donald Trump’s 'America First' trade policies have led to a 94 per cent cut in US soybean exports to China, forcing farmers in America’s midwest to stockpile crops and hope relief comes before the rot. 
After decades in which American soybean farmers were able to build considerable business by selling a huge share of their crop to China, farmers across the US are seeing the largest market destination for one of the country’s largest crops drying up.

But hey, those farmers are safe from hordes of immigrants and pretty soon China will cave to Trump's demands, so they're still glad they voted for him. They will never see the subsidies he promised and they will continue to see their crops and farm animals dwindle in value until they're back in the days of the dust bowl. But hey, if they are willing to be played as suckers, let them. I'm tired of hearing how great Trump (Obama) has made the economy and the military. (he hasn't)

There will always be diehards.

donnah -- as Dumbya once said, "Fool me once, shame on — shame on you. Fool me — you can't get fooled again.” Uh, ok.
