Once again We the People of America have been sold out by our Government.

The fact that 90% of the American population is asking for proper food labeling and the fact that our Elected Officials have for the past 15 years continually vote on legislation that is exactly opposite of what We the People want has created a serious dichotomy for our once proud nation. So one has to ask, Whom Do Your Elected Officials Represent???

On November 19, 1863 President Lincoln gave the Gettysburg Address and uttered one of the most famous quotes in the annals of history….

and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Abraham Lincoln November 19, 1863

We no Longer have a Government Of The People…By The People…For The People…

Whom Do Your Elected Officials Represent?

No I fear we now have a government Of the Lackeys By Monsanto For Monsanto & the Corporations. Ladies and Gentlemen…our Government has been purchased by Monsanto. Despite numerous polls showing that 90+% of the country wants proper food labeling our elected officials continue to waste our tax dollars debate legislation contrary to what We the People want.

In 2014 Monsanto GAVE Minnesota Senator Debbie Stabenow $5,000.00. For that Monsanto will receive a rider attached to the Budget that will squash states rights to label food within and coming into their state. Personally I do not believe any legislation that addresses States Rights and limits said States Rights will ever pass muster. It is directly contrary to the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution which reads…

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States, respectively, or to the people.

 

So I have to ask the good People….

The following is from the Center for Food Safety an organization that has been developed in light of the FDA and the USDA failures to protect the American Food Supply. Remember that is was the Reagan Administrations “deregulation” policies that got us here.

That said: What are your thought about your local Elected Officials doing Corporations bidding? Is this what we elect them for??? While the Republicans receive almost 2-1 in political influence contributions compared to Democrats. However, it seems it does not matter which party controls our government…Prime example is our current President that said this to get elected…

It is said that 80% of processed food has GMO products in them. Again I ask you…

From The Center for Food Safety;

We regret to inform you, but once again your government has chosen to put junk food and biotech industry profits over the real concerns of the American public.

Yesterday, officials in the Obama Food and Drug Administration (FDA) shocked Americans by opting to approve GMO salmon for human consumption here in the United States, where 90% of the population favors GMO labeling.  This deeply flawed and irresponsible approval is an outrage and means that the first genetically engineered animal will soon be on the shelf in grocery stores and restaurants across the country.

And because of current U.S. law, these newly approved GMO Frankenfish will appear on your plate without you knowing it due to a lack of mandatory GMO labeling laws here in the U.S..

Sigh the petition or donate to assist

Tragically, Obama’s approval of AqauBounty’s genetically engineered salmon was done using only the company’s own shoddy scientific studies, which were so poorly designed they wouldn’t pass a 5th grade science fair.

For two of the studies submitted, AquaBounty used sample sizes so small that they have no scientific credibility, with only 12 fish tested for one study, while another study on possible allergic reactions in humans involved only 6 fish! Despite this scant evidence, the FDA approved AqauBounty’s GMO salmon anyway. Seriously?

Whom Do Your Elected Officials Represent?

This is so irresponsible it should be illegal! Unfortunately, if everyday people like us don’t stand up, we will soon be forced to eat these untested GMO Frankenfish because there are no laws that require mandatory GMO labeling.

Now U.S. Senate is Poised to Kill GMO Labeling Once and For All

Even worse than this new approval is the fact that yesterday, Politico reported that your Senators are close to a deal on possibly selling us out on GMO labeling once and for all.

Right now Monsanto lobbyists are scrambling to get your Senators to support efforts to kill GMO labeling and preempt states’ rights so food companies can avoid mandatory GMO labeling.

Whom Do Your Elected Officials Represent?

Even more alarming is the fact that Politico reported that some Senators may even go so far as to attach a rider to the end-of-year budget bill to create a voluntary GMO labeling standard to stomp out the GMO labeling movement once and for all.

This is the Monsanto Protection Act all over again, but this time its even worse. It would be a permanent law that would forbid mandatory GMO labeling, outlaw the right for states to pass GMO labeling laws and set up a phony voluntary standard that has no teeth at all, and even make it illegal for local counties to regulate GMOs on their land.

Ironically, the same giant food and chemical companies that are fighting to deny us our basic rights to label GMOs in America, already label them in 64 other countries around the world.

Here is a film that may open your eyes a bit….

In light of this development I believe I have a better solution to this issue…How long do you think your local store is going to stock UNLABELED SALMON if it is left to rot in the case??? Keep in mind folks…two or three days and fish is no longer viable in a grocery store setting.

What if we don’t by the unlabeled products?? What if everyone only eats fish they catch or know where they come from??? What if We the People start causing some havoc in Washington by recalling every politician that votes favorably or attaches riders like Debbie Stabenow is about to do…what if We the People waste our tax dollars by recalling the folks that have granted themselves lifetime medical benefits and retirement plans at our expense.

Lot of What ifs huh???

But what if We the People say enough????

Isn’t it time that our Government is For The People once again????

I ask you to join in my campaign and ask the burning question…
