59 What position do libertarians have on subsidies for farm and business?

All business people, including farmers, should be able to offer their
products in a free market without being subsidized by others. The way
to help both producers and consumers is to remove government programs
and restrictions which have damaged America's free enterprise system.

Subsidies are harmful and unfair. Why should some businesses be taxed
to give handouts to others? Why should you pay higher prices to
support government favored businesses?

Let's stop this nonsense. Then business could operate in a free market
and all of us could be better fed, clothed and housed at lower cost.
