I just got this letter from Campaign for Liberty and it is easy to copy and paste some of it and go to the link where you can contact your senators.
Please do this.

Dear Friend of Liberty,
Just days after Thanksgiving, Senate statists will hold a series of critical votes on the War on Food bill this Monday, November 29.
Click here to get contact information for calling, faxing, and emailing your senators. Tell them to oppose S.510, the misnamed "Food Safety Modernization Act," on every vote - including cloture.
S. 510 will open the floodgates for tyrannical federal bureaucrats to crush the food industry’s small businesses.
The bill’s proponents suggest that a few provisions totally address concerns of small-scale farmers, but closer examination reveals the FDA acquires even more power to shut down family farms on a whim.
And you can be sure that the government's Big Agriculture allies will have no problem adjusting to the new corporatist rules.
Unless the freedom movement immediately takes a stand, the establishment will be able to chalk up one more win for the Big Government status quo.
In these tough economic times, S. 510 will drive up the costs of food production by adding more layers of government interference.
The bill also empowers federal agencies to impose international guidelines and standards on domestic food producers - molding American food production into an unhealthy globalist Codex system.
It should be noted that Senators Tom Harkin (D-IA), Mike Enzi (R-WY), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Judd Gregg (R-NH), Chris Dodd (D-CT), and Richard Burr (R-NC) coordinated to reach a "bipartisan" agreement earlier in the year to forge ahead with the otherwise stalled bill.
If you are a constituent of any of these senators, they especially need to hear from you.
Don't let the statists empower their Big Agriculture allies and destroy reputable food producers like the independent family farm, where the free market works every day to provide the public with healthy choices.
