Why are America’s farmers killing themselves in record numbers?


Last year, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that people working in agriculture – including farmers, farm laborers, ranchers, fishers, and lumber harvesters – take their lives at a rate higher than any other occupation. The data suggested that the suicide rate for agricultural workers in 17 states was nearly five times higher compared with that in the general population.

  1. Farmers and those who choose to live in the wilderness are used to FREEDOM and now they are seeing it being taken form them,one right at a time

    Their only mistake is not realizing that they should be taking the lives of the OPPRESSORS rather than their own lives

    They have been indoctrinate to the LIE that they MUST obey the LAWS.

    Laws which take away ones RIGHTS are NOT VALID and they just don’t know that.. Ones life is MORE important than ANY laws.

    The FATE of MOST AMERICANS, soon to be realized.

    Patrick Henry would have agreed with me
