First minute, and this is what jumps out in response to the "let the free market take care of it" crowd.

Monsanto has a patent on these products/seeds. They have a patent on living organisms. This is wrong on so many levels.

So the government - in this case, the Federal government is already involved. But the "let the free market take care of it" crowd says "leave the government out of it?" The government is already in it. The government is all over it. The government created the problem in the first place by handing out the patent.

And then you say, "let the free market" take care of it? Impossible.

You may disagree with the tactic. You may say the effort should be aimed at repealing the patents at the federal level, and forcing Monsanto to play by free market rules. I agree with that, too.
