More on GMO’s at the Ballot Box
We knew this was coming. Monsanto is not going down without a fight. They have the motivation and the deep pockets to really slug it out with California voters, activists, and citizens. Here’s how their argument may go.
You don’t want to live in a Nanny state, the flacks in the Monsanto PR office will say. Don’t let anyone tell you what to do. What they MEAN is, you don’t need to know what’s in your food. Trust us. We’ll take care of you.
Yeah, sure. Like I would trust the folks that have poisoned people around the world with Roundup? With Agent Orange? Killed off birds, and bees, and earthworms, and children living too near fields where all this junk is put on the soil. Yeah, right.
All the California initiative is asking is that food companies tell the truth. They are simply asking to extend the fair labeling act to include GMO use. What’s wrong with that?
Plenty if you have a vested interested in patented seed, the sale of deadly poisons for the earth, and removing the control of farming from farmers to corporations – like Monsanto, for example.
The truth is that Monsanto, et al, wants to deceive the public so they can control what people are offered in the market and what is sold.
For example, 80% of processed foods in the grocery store today contain HFCS, made from the afore-mentioned GMO corn grown through out the bread basket of this country. Would you buy this crap if it were labeled? I thought not.
And that’s why Monsanto is so hell-bent on making this California initiative fail. Think how your choices in the free market for yourself and for your children might change if you had the whole truth.
If California’s citizens stand up and defeat the no-labeling practices of the agribusiness giant, it will be a stand not only for health, but for the free market. Cause, I’m telling you folks, unless you know what you are putting in your mouth, the market ain’t free.Pin It
