Mike,

You have ties to the Fed, as I see you using their fiat money, too.  Don't say you don't.  If you pay rent or buy food or rent a video, or whatever, you are spending Fed notes.  Protecting our right-to-know isn't expanding government, it is expanding our knowledge.  Just because a law is a legal thing, doesn't mean it is on government's side.  They don't support labeling, so we are reversing the whole thing, forcing government to do the right thing when they don't want to.

I see you have ties to the Federal Reserve as well so I want to know all your personal business. Don't tell me you don't have ties to them. I have sources who have seen you using their notes all over the place. The answer is to down size government not to expand it.

The overwhelming amount of Monsanto ties to government speaks for itself that they are just as tied as the federal reserve. So forcing them to be transparent is a libertarian idea just as is freedom of information act and audit the federal reserve. Sent from Yahoo! Mail for iPhone

Our government is socialist, but you and I and many other Americans aren't.  Same in Europe.  Since when is informing the public considered tyranny?  Seems to be liberating to me.  Now the EU is gradually patenting natural supplements like Folic Acid and raw produce like broccoli, so that is the continent's next battle.  Sounds like tyranny to me, Mike.  You need to chill out on what you consider tyranny.  The IRS and the NSA and the Fed, yes.  Informing people like me that there is fluordated water, or GMO's, or any other dangerous chemical in food is for 500 million Americans. Liberty to swing my arms ends where your nose begins, doesn't it?
