Ben Swann Exclusive: Did Rand Paul Endorse Establishment Republican To Block “Liberty Democrat”?

Exclusive: Did Rand Paul Endorse Establishment Republican To Block “Liberty Democrat”?

In fact, if he were truly looking to endorse a candidate who aligns with his stated beliefs on indefinite detention of U.S. citizens, drone strikes, NSA spying, whistleblower protection, and no more bailouts, Sen. Paul arguably should have endorsed the Democratic candidate.

Bangor, Maine- Senator Rand Paul provided the keynote address at the Maine GOP Convention this Saturday. Sen. Paul spoke before a packed house, excited to hear from the likely Republican Presidential candidate. What surprised some of the crowd and simultaneously delighted others, however was when Paul endorsed long time Maine Senator Susan Collins.

Sedgwick, Maine Took the Controversial Libertarian Position on GMO Foods. And yes, They're Still Alive.

Note: This is an article I wrote for a publication but it was rejected. So I'm going to post it here as a DP Original.

Sedgwick, Maine Took the Controversial Libertarian Position on GMO Foods. And yes, They're Still Alive.

Nine European countries have already banned Monsanto's GMO corn. Throughout Europe there's a growing outcry of just getting rid of Monsanto and GMO all together. That same public sentiment is now beginning to spread throughout the United States as anti-GMO protests and movements continue to gain support. Then you have the town of Sedgwick, Maine who decided to just let the people have complete freedom over their food choices.

Now before this issue of labeling GMO or banning them can be addressed, these questions briefly need answered: what is a GMO and why do so many people hate it?

GMO stands for a genetically modified organism. According to Wikipedia, it is simply an organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques. Critics say that when this genetic altering is applied to foods for human consumption, it makes the food harmful to human health. Therefore critics of GMO foods view it as poison, and at the very least they say it should be labeled, and possibly even go so far as banning the food itself.

The biggest GMO producer however – Monsanto – detests those arguments of its critics. From Monsanto.com:

Plants and crops with GM traits have been tested more than any other crops—with no credible evidence of harm to humans or animals...Governmental regulatory agencies, scientific organizations and leading health associations worldwide agree that food grown from GM crops is safe to eat.
