$1.6 Billion and 18,000 additional government employees for S.510, the Food Safety bill, are up for a vote in the Senate any time within the next 60 days. S.510 is one of the most dangerous pieces of legislation thus far.
Since 2008, the Obama administration has increased the FDA budget by 135% to an astounding $4.03 Billion and yet Senators want to add another $1.6 Billion and double the number of employees. Why? Is our government trying to institute fascist control over our nation’s food supply? You decide.
“If accepted, [S 510] would preclude the public’s right to grow, own, trade, transport, share, feed and eat each and every food that nature makes. 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
The US already has an over-funded government agency responsible for food safety. One must ask themselves why this new legislation (S.510) is needed. It doesn’t take a mental giant to understand what’s going on.
Let me be direct; Americans do not want the “transformation” that this government intends. Reference: “The Obama administration is proposing to increase funding for … the agency’s effort to “transform” the way it regulates food and medical products” and FDA Requests $4.03 Billion to “Transform” Food Safety System, Invest in Medical Product Safety, Regulatory Science.
Perhaps this video will provide a better understanding of what the Obama administration is attempting to do:
In 2007, the FDA Commissioner stated that the FDA Mission is as follows:
“FDA is responsible for ensuring the safety and high quality of more than a trillion dollars worth of products that are critical for the survival and well-being of all Americans — products that include some 80 percent of the United States food supply, all human health care products, electronic products that emit radiation, animal drugs and feed, and cosmetics.”
The only way to determine whether food is safe is to test it, right? I didn’t see any test equipment in the hands of the government employees raiding that store, did you? Does the FDA Mission specify that the government has a right to conduct armed raids on food producers or stores?
These types of raids are happening now, so imagine what will happen if S.510 passes.
I urge you to contact all Senators and tell them to VOTE NO on S.510.
