(NaturalNews) Senate Bill S 510 - the "Food Safety Modernization Act" - was passed by the U.S. Senate today (http://www.naturalnews.com/030576_F...). If signed into law, it would unleash a new era of FDA tyranny over farmers, food producers and even small family farms, many of which already exceed the "small farms exclusion" written into the bill.
Here's the list of US Senators who voted to approve final passage of S.510. Remember these names when the next election comes around:
Additional commentary about the vote Notably,there was not a single Democrat who opposed the bill. This bill was also supported by Food, Inc. authors Michael Pollan and Eric Schlosser, who have become the favored food commentators of the left. It's now clear why: In supporting this bill, they have aligned themselves against Constitutional freedoms and in favor of increased Big Government (FDA) authority over food, seeds and farmers.
Change.org also strongly supported S.510, although its online petition pitifully attracted only 1,662 signatures. The Libertarian groups who opposed the bill, in contrast, generated hundreds of thousands of emails and phone calls to U.S. Senate offices. These Libertarian-minded groups include NaturalNews, the Alliance for Natural Health (www.ANH-USA.org) and the Natural Solutions Foundation (www.HealthFreedomUSA.org), among others.
As you well know, I personally don't trust Democrats nor Republicans, but this fight over S.510 has shown yet again that, to the left, Big Government is always thought to be the solution, even if it means stripping away the Constitutional rights of Americans.
The difference between Republicans and Democrats is that Republicans will take away your rights and money as an excuse to take care of the rich people. Democrats, on the other hand, will take away your rights and money as an excuse to take care of everybody.
Remember: Republicans gave us the Patriot Act. And now Democrats have given us the Food Safety bill. Both laws are unconstitutional expansions of government power that the American people will come to regret.
I am so angry over this. I have been contacting the Repubs that voted against it to ask them to put together a group of them to EDUCATE the HOUSE members to hold it up. You would not believe that ppl in the House who are SUPPOSED to be WITH the Tea Party voted for this damned thing.
Also, I am calling the ones who did vote for it and expressing how very bad of a decision this is, and of course are defending themselves.
As a Tea Party Founder/Leader in Upstate NY, I will tell you the same thing I told my members lastnight.
GET ON THAT PHONE> Call AND email/fax the ones that voted against the bill- and THANK THEM. Ask them to please help form a coalition to get with the House members - especially those R's that somehow thought this bill was a good thing last time it was in the House and voted FOR it!
SEND THEM THE LINKS THAT EXPLAIN THE BAD ISSUES OF THIS POWER GRAB, like the one I posted above in the previous post.
If you have personal stories ike the lady who talked to farmers and they lamented this miserable thing-- get those people to do the same.
I am asking The Senators to do everything they can with their pull to get these people to help stop this thing and hold it up before the end of the year. It will not pass the new House.
Then call, and email the @$$wipes that voted for this and do the very same thing except tell them you will work towards making sure that we do a repeat in 2012 of what we just did in November. Contact everyone you know- and have them do the same thing.
They know now that even if you are NOT a constituent, that we can make a difference from all over the country. REMIND THEM ALL THAT even thos you may not live in their district, when they vote - their vote affects everyone in this entire country.
GET ACTIVE. Do NOT sit and just let them steamroll over us anymore. We are literally teetering on the edge of a cliff and this will be a push over into the pits of hell. WE have got to work tirelessly to stop this.
You tell them that you did not devote your life to serving this country in the military for THIS!
It's not lame duck it's lame dick this session of the house they just a bunch of old lame ducks they could not get things right or up if they wanted to hence the term(lame dick) they are just a bunch of wads
Here's what we have to do to stop the S510....bombard the US House of Representatives demanding they refuse the Senate Bill.........kill it until the new Congress takes over........Call or fax your congressman and voice your opposition and name the Senate Bill S 510 - the "Food Safety Modernization Act"
What's next: Defeat the bill in committee
The Senate version of the bill must now be reconciled with the House version that was passed last year. This reconciliation committee must hammer out the differences between the two bills.
Democrats are urgently rushing to do this during their "lame duck" session in order to avoid more Republicans getting involved who would seek to scale back the power and size of the federal government.
Some House Democrats are even suggesting they would support passing the Senate version of the bill as it is written, without requiring any changes whatsoever, just to rush it through before the end of the year. NaturalNews and other health freedom organizations intend to fight this effort, hoping to stall the bill until the new Congress can enter the picture and hopefully interject some common sense into the negotiations.
