Let's go inside and talk to my OLD friend kaitlin.
The populist party came together because several farm groups wanted the government to start a free silver policy; matching up the amount of money available with silver would mean that more money would be available.
Do you know what led to the formation of the populist party?
One second, I need to go and see if Andrea did her homework.
I did!! The farmers were angry at railroad companies being the "Middleman" in the wheat industry, so they bought grain elevators and sold wheat directly to businesses.
Did you do your homework, Andrea?! Because if you did then, what did the farmers want and why?
Wow, Andrea you are smart! Have fun I am going to go and cook supper.
