  1. Stop all farm foreclosures with a modernized version of the Frasier-Lemke Act.
  2. Debt moratorium for insolvent farmers for the duration of the world economic depression.
  3. Nationalize the Federal Reserve to provide 0% long-term federal credit for farm operations and capital improvements.
  4. Increase irrigation with a program of water projects, including NAWAPA, financed with 0% century bonds by the nationalized Fed.
  5. Restore parity price supports for farm commodities and set payments at 110% of parity or more for the duration of the world depression and food emergency.
  6. Double US overseas emergency food aid under Food for Peace, focusing on the eradication of famine with no political strings attached.
  7. No cuts to Food Stamps (SNAP); increase the Food Stamps benefit to a minimum of $3 per person per meal from the current $1.48, with liberalized eligibility.
  8. Pay for (5) (6) and (7) and other measures with a 1% federal Wall Street Sales Tax, with half of the proceeds going to the states under revenue sharing.
