Monsanto nation: Exposing Monsanto's minions

http://www.naturalnews.com/031263_Monsanto_organic_consumers...

(NaturalNews) My expose last week, The Organic Elite Surrenders to Monsanto: What Now? http://www.organicconsumers.org/articles/article_22449.cfm (has ignited a long-overdue debate on how to stop Monsanto's earth killing, market-monopolizing, climate-destabilizing rampage.

Should we basically resign ourselves to the fact that the Biotech Bully of St. Louis controls the dynamics of the marketplace and public policy? Should we seek some kind of practical compromise or "coexistence" between organics and genetically modified organisms (GMOs)? Should we focus our efforts on crop pollution compensation and "controlled deregulation" of genetically engineered (GE) crops, rather than campaign for an outright ban, or mandatory labeling and safety-testing? Should we prepare ourselves for a future farm landscape where the U.S.'s 23 million acres of alfalfa, the nation's fourth largest crop, (93 percent of which are currently not sprayed with toxic herbicides), including organic alfalfa, are sprayed with Roundup and/or genetically polluted with Monsanto's mutant genes?

Or should we stand up and say "Hell no" to Monsanto and the Obama Administration? Should we stop all the talk about coexistence between organics and GMOs; unite Millions Against Monsanto, mobilize like never before at the grassroots; put enormous pressure on the nation's grocers to truthfully label the thousands of so-called conventional or "natural" foods containing or produced with GMOs; and then slowly but surely drive GMOs from the market?

Of course "coexistence" and "controlled deregulation" are now irrelevant in regard to Monsanto's herbicide-resistant alfalfa. Just after my essay was posted last week, the White House gave marching orders to the USDA to allow Monsanto and its minions to plant GE Roundup-resistant alfalfa on millions of acres, from sea to shining sea, with no restrictions whatsoever.

Ron Paul's View on Monsanto

I actually just started checking into Ron Paul. This morning I watched Life Running Out of Control http://www.cultureunplugged.com/play/696/Life-Running-Out-of... - a documentary about how Monsanto is meeting with unexpected resistance to their genetically modified products and thought I'd check around to see what Ron Paul's views were concerning Monsanto and their practices. It was upsetting to find out Obama put many associated with Monsanto into various positions and this time around I want to be sure to cast my vote for a hopefully brighter future.

Is there a list somewhere that shows what companies use monsanto food?

Thanks

AC: Thanks for the guide. We have been trying to buy organic and avoid GMO as much as possible, but after reviewing this we realized the the papaya we have been buying is likely GM.

LL: Thanks for the article.

Thanks Scott

happy to help bring the info we deserve to get and the MSM mostly is bypassing in coverage.
