Two Bills in Senate that Need Your Attention

There are two bills in the senate that definitely need your attention and the attention of your representatives. They are a huge move by big government to strip Americans of what few rights we have left. The first bill is S3081. This bill will give the government the right to arrest and detain an American citizen indefinitely without trial. Did you read that? An American citizen indefinitely detained without trial. According to the Bill of Rights:

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.

This bill is just another example of the slow destruction that our Constitution is undergoing by our government agents. How many Americans will just shrug their shoulders and simply say "It doesn't affect me?".

Now the next bill is equally ridiculous. S3002 authorizes the federal government to regulate vitamins, minerals, and virtually all health and natural food products. Now we see what a great job government regulation already does (peanut butter contamination, ice cream contamination, spinach contamination, tomato, etc. etc. etc.). So now they want to take away our right to choose natural supplements versus, chemical experimentation via big pharma. If they have this authority what makes them stop with that bottle of vitamin C on the shelf? Why not just regulate how many and what kind of oranges we are allowed to buy. Shoot why don't we just force a prescription for those oranges and by doing that we can charge 10 times the price.

Folks these are dangerous bills that John McCain (who by the way said over and over that he was against big government) has proposed. Don't let these bills slip under the radar. Get to writing those letters and making phone calls. These bills need to be stopped simply because the path they lead to is a very dangerous one indeed for anyone who values freedom and choice. Blessings from the farm.
