Senate Bill S 510 – the “Food Safety Modernization Act” – was passed by the U.S. Senate today. 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.
While the documentary ‘Food, Inc.’ is decent, especially for those just getting into the realm of where their food really comes from and what’s being done to it, due to their support of Senate Bill 510, I have removed them from my “Suggested Reading” list. I urge you to boycott them, as well or send an email!
I am now supporting Vandana Shiva’s latest book, ‘Stolen Harvest: The Hijacking of the Global Food Supply’ –
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.
