Rand Paul Votes NO on GMO Labeling

June 23, 2012
Thought that endorsing Romney was bad enough? In another turn of events that exposes the corporatist leanings of Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky, he has voted NO on a GMO labeling amendment to the farm bill “to permit States to require that any food, beverage, or other edible product offered for sale have a label on indicating that the food, beverage, or other edible product contains a genetically engineered ingredient.”

"The organization that spearheaded the whole labeling craze is a Merck and Rockefeller funded organization: The Organic Consumers Association. They hyped up labeling to divert activists attention from more effective things like...ending subsidies to the biotech industry, or reigning in their monopolistic intellectual property. They are like the moveon.org of the anti-biotech movement. The executive of the organization also frequently trashes John Mackey, a Ron Paul supporter and CEO of Whole Foods.

This is a weird issue. You would probably have more people on your side in this thread if you conflated this with auditing the fed instead of trying to tie it in with individualist-libertarian ownership principles. Maybe even the fact that the industry wouldn't even exist without subsidies. However, labeling isn't going to accomplish much. We need to end subsidies and abolish intellectual property for this industry first and foremost."

Duplicate Post!

I was just going to start a thread titled 'where have all the trolls gone' when this popped up.

Pandacentricism will be our downfall.
