Use the free market to fight against GMO products! (Updated)

There is an app that you can use to help you find products that are non-GMO, at NonGMOProject.org. I am sure that many here have already heard about it and probably already use it, but I thought it was appropriate to post here now, especially considering Prop 37 in California failed.

In addition to mentioning the app, which is called the "Non-GMO Project," I will list below some products that I found that were Non-GMO. Lets focus on puchasing these items, fighting Monsanto and putting them out of business.

Michael Scheuer- No matter who wins, the next president will — without question– be an interventionist war president

No matter who wins, the next president will — without question– be an interventionist war president

Having listened to a campaign in which Governor Romney explained how he would fix the U.S. economy and carry a big stick around the world, and President Obama continually blame George W. Bush for all our economic problems and try to depict Romney as the evil-millionaire Mr. Potter from Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life, voters can take their pick on Tuesday. But when doing so they must realize that no matter who wins, the next president’s biggest problem will be fighting wars overseas with a war weary populace and an undermanned and ill-equipped military. And no matter who is elected, the new president will only have himself and his interventionist party to blame.

Justin Raimondo: Ron Paul’s Revenge!

by Justin Raimondo, November 07, 2012

What’s particularly nervy — galling, really — about the idea that the US ought to be spreading our democratic system across the globe is the fact that we don’t have anything close to democracy in this country. Nor do we have what the Founders intended to create: a republic, where the power of the state is limited by the Constitution. This is underscored every time Americans go to the polls, where they are confronted with “choices” determined by lawmakers whose chief interest in life is getting reelected with as little opposition as possible. These guardians of the polity have made it virtually impossible for so-called third parties — i.e. parties not controlled by corporate interests and foreign lobbyists — to even get on the ballot.

Post Election Blues: Stocks Plunge 200 Points At Opening

CNBC: Stocks opened sharply lower Wednesday in the wake of President Barack Obama's re-election, triggered by worries over the looming "fiscal cliff" and as fears over Europe resurfaced.

“I don’t think there’s a long-term market reaction to the presidential election itself—it’s now how quickly we can focus on the ‘fiscal cliff’ and coming up with a resolution,” said Art Hogan, managing director of Lazard Capital Markets.

Winners & Losers: GOP in Deep Trouble, Ron Paul Looking Good

Romney lost today to a guy who is overseeing a horrible economy, prosecuting unpopular wars, and who can barely string 5 words together without a teleprompter. This was the best the Republican Party can do. Not only are the Republicans evil, they're evil and contemptible losers, which is far worse.

The biggest losers tonight are of course people who value peace and freedom, but we would have also lost if Romney won. The GOP is right up there in the loser category, however. The GOP lost seats in the Senate, and did little to improve its position in the House. It has served up two ridiculously bad nominees in a row, claiming "electability" and then going down in flames.

Rand Paul certainly came out of this looking very bad as well. He fell in line behind the party masters, banking on some advantage to be gained through an endorsement of Romney. He ended up just looking politically unsavvy and unprincipled. There is little to be gained either, from playing ball with a Party that as inept as the GOP at this point.

Daily Caller: Several ‘Ron Paul Republicans’ win closely contested House races

Good article. Looks like we gained even more ground in the house!

Texas Republican Rep. Ron Paul will retire from Congress next year after serving for 12 terms, but several Republicans influenced by the iconic libertarian-leaning lawmaker will be arriving to take his place.

Thomas Massie won the race to replace retiring Kentucky Republican Rep. Geoff Davis, beating Democrat Bill Adkins by 20 percentage points. Massie, an ally of Paul’s son, Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul, raised nearly 10 times as much money as Adkins, according to the Lexington-Herald Leader.

The born again, reuniting, welcome back, election is over, time to get back to business thread.

Hey team,

By now most of have aired our laundry, made our pitch and campaigned for what we thought was right. We are in the final hours of voting and before you know it it will all be in the books.

We duked it out and did some blood letting but now the battle is over, at least on who to vote for in the 2012 presidential election.

So now we embark on a new dawn. Let us all put the uglies behind us and join together in the fight for liberty on common ground.

Many of us admire the passion and heart of our members that wanted to persuade folks into the Gary Johnson camp. We also admire the folks that wanted no one but Ron Paul. There's even admiration for others that fiercely fought for other liberty candidates. In the end we all have a common goal and should put pride aside and embrace each other for what brought us together in the first place

One thing we can all agree on is we are passionate , have huge hearts and are some of the toughest fighters for principle in the world. We all want to be free and glow with the fire of liberty!

Ron Paul foresees 2012 outcome

It looks like neither Mitt Romney nor President Barack Obama will land the endorsement of former GOP presidential candidate Ron Paul in this final hour of election 2012.

In an Election Day interview on CNN's "Newsroom," the Texas congressman said he won't back either candidate because he sees little difference between them.
