Senator Rand Paul RIGHTLY Voted Against GMO Labels

Senator Rand Paul, one of the few senators trusted and honored by the health freedom and liberty movement, recently controversially voted AGAINST the GMO Label amendment to S. 3240, the Senate Agriculture Bill.

Rand not only voted against the GMO Labels amendment, 2310, but also voted “Nay” on S. 3240, Agriculture Reform, Food, and Jobs Act of 2012. This should be noted-that there was a nay vote on the overall bill by Rand-signaling discomfort with the presence of a Federal Farm Bill, one of the powers most definitely not granted to the Federal government by Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution.

But this is a dupe thread... the real discussion is going on here:

This thread is a dupe and has been taken over by leftist trolls, please lock it mods. :(

If you had read the amendment

then you would know how foolish your thread is.
Rand voted no to States' rights.
The 10th Amendment clearly states:
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

There are at least 20 States looking to legislate mandatory GM labelling. No politician would do that UNLESS there was a huge push from the PEOPLE to do such a thing. The People are supposed to direct their reps as to what to do and now the fed guv just shut down the people's voice.... again.
Rand forgot who he works for and voted FOR Big Corp instead of the People.

You need to read the amendment...

"(e) Regulations.--Not later than 1 year after the date of enactment of this Act, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs and the Secretary of Agriculture shall promulgate such regulations as are necessary to carry out this section."

How is this about state's rights? You've been conned, buddy.

GMO's are too big a threat to life on this planet...

..to pussyfoot around.

FACT: Most consumers are still totally ignorant about the dangers posed by GMO foods.

FACT: The so-called "free market" approach will result in the continued intentional poisoning of millions for years to come merely because they happen to believe that "corn" is still corn and "soybeans" are still soybeans.

FACT: If labelling of GMOs is not mandated, most consumers of GMOs will not realize they are buying and consuming poison.

FACT: By the the time most consumers realize the fraud, the epi-genetic damage to the species and the genetic polution of the biosphere will already be done and, once done, cannot be undone.

GMO's should be made illegal ASAP. Short of that, mandatory labeling is essential to protect the planet and the species and minimize the damage done. This comes well within the police powers of State governments, but given their lack of jurisdiction over interstate and international commerce, Federal action is essential.

The issue is more than false advertising or fraud. Sellers of GMO foods are committing violence against humanity, attacking our specie's epigenetics and threatening the future genetic viability of life on this planet. The foundational principle of libertarianism, the non-aggression principle requires that GMO crops be banned or, at the very least, be clearly labeled and readily identifiable in the marketplace.

Rand is dangerously wrong on this one.

Is this site going the way of Youtube

always shills trying to post about OL JUDAS. Bah I vote it down.

Pretty much covers the Libertarian

view, the path Rand took. Good find, KOC.

Rand Paul has stated several

Rand Paul has stated several times that he is NOT a libertarian. He has stated time and time again that he is a Republican. Also I can't say I agree with his vote here. GMOs are poison and they should be documented. The food industry already has to document it's ingredients as far as dyes and chemicals why not go all the way.

Dyes in foods have been linked to ADHD in children and many other synthetic sugars are carcinogeic and are linked to various cancers. There are so many things about food that people just haven't cared to learn about. This is why I stay away from processed foods and sugary drinks.

did Rand "follow the libertarian path" when he endorsed Romney?

Why does Rand get to "bend" his amazing libertarian principals if it helps his political career, but not if it helps consumers get accurate information about toxic GMO products?

Every post/comment you make is...

Rand Rand Rand Rand Rand Rand Rand Rand... your entire point in being here is to bash Rand.

Did you miss it when Ron Paul

Did you miss it when Ron Paul endorsed establishment politicians in the past for political purposes?
