Today will be the finale vote on whether the U.S. Senate will ALLOW Americans to continue to grow a garden, or save seeds, to be able to sell produce at farmers markets or not. As if we are their slaves. Please get involved to help stop removing one more freedom from American citizens. If this happens trully good food will no longer be availble in the United States of America any longer. You will only be able to eat what Monsanto and DHS say it will allow you to eat.
Take action to stop S.510 "Food Safety Act"
Your help is needed to halt the tyrannical new "S.510" U.S. Senate bill that could criminalize saving seeds and outlaw backyard garden food production. It is being called "the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America."
Senate Bill 510, the Food Safety Modernization Act, has been called "the most dangerous bill in the history of the United States of America." It would grant the U.S. government new authority over the public's right to grow, trade and transport any foods. This would give Big brother the power to regulate the tomato plants in your backyard. It would grant them the power to arrest and imprison people selling cucumbers at farmer's markets. It would criminalize the transporting of organic produce if you don't comply with the authoritarian rules of the federal government.
"It will become the most offensive authority against the cultivation, trade and consumption of food and agricultural products of one's choice. It will be unconstitutional and contrary to natural law or, if you like, the will of God." - Dr. Shiv Chopra, Canada Health whistleblower (http://shivchopra.com/?page_id=2)
This tyrannical law puts all food production (yes, even food produced in your own garden) under the authority of the Department of Homeland Security. Yep -- the very same people running the TSA and its naked body scanner / passenger groping programs.
This law would also give the U.S. government the power to arrest any backyard food producer as a felon (a "smuggler") for merely growing lettuce and selling it at a local farmer's market.
It also sells out U.S. sovereignty over our own food supply by ceding to the authority of both the World Trade Organization (WTO) and Codex Alimentarius.
It would criminalize seed saving (http://foodfreedom.wordpress.com/20...), turning backyard gardeners who save heirloom seeds into common criminals. This is obviously designed to give corporations like Monsanto a monopoly over seeds.
It would create an unreasonable paperwork burden that would put small food producers out of business, resulting in more power over the food supply shifting to large multinational corporations.

What can we do? We can Persevere and Prevail --- if Millions Act Together... nearly a MILLION emails about the fake "safety" bills have gone through our Action Item system since the House took the issue up over a year ago. ANOTHER 15 THOUSAND TODAY!
Food Fascism (yes, that is not too strong a term!) is just three TWO days away!

Even Dr. Coburn’s well-intentioned amendment striping some of the worst clauses from the bill does not go far enough to protect local, organic, family, community food production and distribution! The amendment to which the sponsors and Sen Tester agreed actually reduces the exempt territory from 400 to 275 miles from the farm.
Here are our Talking Points about the bad features of the “Managers’ Version” of the bill: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=6910
And here our general analysis: http://www.healthfreedomusa.org/?p=7446
Last November Just 150,000 emails over one memorable weekend held the bill in committee for nearly a year; the Week before Thanksgiving our system exceeded 5,000 an hour for many hours!
WE NEED EVEN MORE PUSH BACK RIGHT NOW!
PLEASE contact all your online supporters and associates again — tell them to contact their Senators; we must make this message “go viral” and flood the Senate email system over the next few days! Let them know that a vast and growing transpartisan alliance of health & food freedom advocates, framers, ranchers, gardeners, tea partiers and others have sent millions of messages to Congress: SENATOR: VOTE “NO!” ON S.510!
We do not support any version of the fake “food safety” bill and will work to defund any bill that is adopted and signed into law! We will not forget how each Senator votes on this critical issue!
Action Item (to contact your Senators; please do so at least daily for each member of your household!) – http://salsa.democracyinaction.org/o/568/p/dia/action/public/?action_KEY=4613
Join us to listen and chat about this on Dr. Rima Reports – www.HealthFreedomPortal.org [Every Sunday morning, 9 to noon Central - Oracle Broadcasting].
PS - someone emailed us, "Why are you putting a dollar sign in front of the fake "food safety" bill number?" Answer: because even its proponents admit they'll need to spend nearly One Billion Dollars in the first year to implement this new control scheme... and they never over-estimate! With 4,000 new FDA "inspectors" a whole new army of Federal controllers will be unleashed on our local, natural food production and distribution. The cost will grow and grow... as govt grows to meet the needs of a growing govt!
