“As a farmer, I have seen the waste and unintended consequences of government programs that are outside the federal government’s mandate. Ron Paul’s record spanning thirty years of Constitutional conservatism proves that he doesn’t say one thing and then do another. He’s the one candidate who will steer our country back toward the liberty and prosperity that comes with true, limited government,” said Rep. Jason Schultz (R-Schleswig), who serves on the “Farmers for Ron Paul” national advisory board, makes a living crop farming soybeans and corn and endorsed Paul on July 25.
Dairy farmer and food choice advocate Tom German said, “Ron Paul’s policies provide farm families the best opportunity to succeed using the God-given resources with which they’ve been blessed. He promotes liberty for the benefit of individuals so that they may more freely and flexibly provide for their family, and improve their farm.”
German will serve on the national advisory board and is co-chairman of the campaign in Iowa’s 4th District.
In Iowa, the agriculture industry provides roughly 28 percent of the state’s economy.
