Election Season 2014

And it has brought us to this trainwreck called ObamaCare and we have bankrupted our kids and grandkids!

We are now headed into the 2014 Election Season and common sense and conservatism are on the rise. Please stand-up and be counted!

Reading Collusion: How the Media Stole the 2012 Election is a great place to start!

The Founding Father's Real Reason for the Second Amendment

And remember the words of Thomas Jefferson "The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."

ACTION ALERT: 'Food Safety Modernization Act' (S510) Final Vote Pending -- CALL SENATORS NOW! (UPDATED)

The United States Senate is now in session, and they continue their 'consideration' of the 'Food Safety Modernization Act,' AKA S510. At the very best, this legislation will DRAMATICALLY increase the cost of our food supply here in America. At worst, it will give the federal government unconstitutional power and control over all farmland in America.


Although is is a ploy to takeover the farmland in America, the way it is written (if they choose to enforce it)  Senate Bill S510 Makes It Illegal to Grow, Share, Trade or Sell Homegrown Food or seeds (especially non-GMO seeds) for any and all Americans.

Since the website page for S510 was down when I attempted to access it twice, here's the Google cache of their S510 page for more info.

UPDATE: The Hill is reporting that the vote has been postponed until tomorrow morning (Tuesday 11.30.10)  This is a huge vote on a bill that assaults our freedoms in many ways and is another step toward socialism, Big Brother and controlling our food supply, what is in it and how much is available.

Senate postpones food-safety bill vote

By Julian Pecquet - 11/29/10 03:02 PM ET
Senate leaders have agreed to postpone a vote on two amendments and final passage of food-safety legislation until Tuesday morning, congressional sources tell The Hill.

The move would give Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) time to debate the merits of his two amendments to the legislation. One amendment is a stripped-down substitute to the bill — the other is a moratorium on congressionally directed appropriations.

"A morning vote is the right move," a spokesman for Coburn told The Hill. "Reid would be sending the wrong message to have a late night vote on keeping the lights on at the earmark favor factory."
Votes on two other amendments to repeal the healthcare reform law's 1099 tax reporting requirements are still scheduled for Monday evening.

The Senate bill would give the Food and Drug Administration the power to recall tainted food, quarantine geographic areas and access food producers’ records.

The House passed its version of food-safety legislation in July 2009. House leaders say the lower chamber could pass the Senate bill as is during this lame-duck session in order to get the bill to the president's desk before a new Congress is sworn in.
This is a seriously bad bill. Glenn Beck said today the part making private home gardens illegal was apparently removed, so this version doesn't necessarily reflect that change, but we must assume it has tons of tyrannical structure.

Even Senator Hatch, who will be, in January, the most progressive of Utah's senators (Mike Lee was the Tea Party/9.12 Project candidate in the Primary election), knows this bill is bad news for America:

Food Safety Bill is a Dangerous Expansion of the Federal Government

November 29, 2010 - 13:56 ET
By Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah)
The Food Safety Bill (S. 510) started out with the best intentions, to make our food supply safer. Unfortunately, even with the best intentions many in Congress will use any excuse to grow government and spend recklessly.
As a conservative on the Senate Health Education Labor and Pensions Committee I initially supported the Food Safety bill. At the time, I was clear that the bill needed significant improvements and if it did not continue to improve that I would stop supporting the bill. I hoped to use my cosponsorship to steer this legislation away from the big government expansion that I feared it would become. I made it clear that if there was a huge price tag to taxpayers that I would not support the bill.

That’s regrettably what happened. After the bill was approved by the committee, the legislation did not improve. It expands the federal workforce by the thousands. The federal workforce should be capped, which is why I introduced legislation this year to do exactly that. In addition this bill has a price tag of $1.5 billion, we simply cannot afford that. We need to balance the budget not continue to spend. Because of these concerns, I have voted against this legislation not once, but twice.

I will continue to oppose this bill. We need to return to the principles that make our country great: a limited federal government and balancing our federal budget by cutting spending.
Here's Glenn Beck discussing the bill this morning on his talk radio program:

2010.11.29 - Glenn Beck on S510, The Potential Loss of America, and Tyrannical Big Government 1/2
2010.11.29 - Glenn Beck on S510, The Potential Loss of America, and Tyrannical Big Government 2/2

I copied/pasted the bill text into Microsoft Word, and it says there are nearly a quarter million characters in the bill, not including spaces (well over 280,000 including spaces). We can't take the chance that this bill will pass. We MUST defeat it!
First, call YOUR U.S. Senator. Then call the rest! Then let us know...
