MUCH ACTIVITY IN THE SENATE ON TUESDAY – KEEP CALLING AND EDUCATING SENATORS HOW YOU FEEL – Call Your Senators: Urge A Vote NO on S. 510–The Food Safety Bill! (phone #’s below)

S. 510, Food Safety Legislation is slated to come to a vote on the Senate floor on Monday, November 29.  While the bill has been improved from a year ago, it still provides an expansion of government into the lives and decisions of Americans regarding foods, farming, and dietary supplements.  This bill includes provisions that authorize the government to map the entire food production system and to track every food product we purchase and grow.
.
Senator Reid of Nevada, after barely holding on to the majority in the Senate and keeping his job as Senator and Majority Leader, has made S. 510 a priority for passage before the 111th Congressional session ends this year.  This Bill is expensive, intrusive, and will not make the food supply safer.  It will however compromise your liberty and privacy while driving the costs of foods higher.
.
The numerous policies and guidelines to be developed are to be ‘science-based’.  The problem with this is that most of the research the government will rely on comes from the agricultural giants who have been pushing small farmers and even heritage seeds out of the marketplace.
.
Behind the scenes, orchestrating ‘food safety’ legislation in the United States is a strategic plan of the UN’s Codex Alimentarius Commission for every nation to develop “national food control systems’ including legislation on food safety and which promote and adopt Codex Guidelines. The fabric of America does not include ‘food control’ laws, but that is exactly what S. 510 launches.
.
We have a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance to stop this Bill before it becomes law.  Call your own two Senators (listed below).  ASK YOUR SENATORS TO VOTE NO ON S. 510 – THE FOOD SAFETY BILL. If we can convince 51 Senators to vote NO on S. 510, Victory is ours.
,
Target your calls and faxes for Sunday night and Monday – and until the vote is taken. See examples of letters or faxes and support for your calls under “Act Now” tab and “Senate Letters”.

A * in the last column means they are a Republican that voted yes on the motion to proceed and should be called to encourage a NO vote.  A # in the last column means they are in an agricultural state and should be encouraged to vote NO.
