What will we talk about on my one hour radio show tomorrow (Sunday, 4 PM Eastern)?
The US Department of Agriculture is attempting to deliver the Mark of the Beast -- literally, they want to compel farmers to mark animals with tags. And apparently, they're not content to stop there.
Big Government loves lists. It wants data about everything to put in these lists. The belief is that government can always improve (Good Government) if it has more information. But we know that equal protection and liberty are both victims of such invasive schemes.
And this case is no different. The National Animal Identification System (NAIS) is a corporate, one-world government scheme. That statement doesn't come from a knee-jerk, conspiratorial place. It is in the conglomerates' interest because NAIS serves as a method to open foreign channels of distribution and because NAIS places a much larger proportional burden on their smaller competitors -- especially the family farm. It is part of a larger scheme driven by the Codex Alimentarius system of the World Trade Organization.
NAIS directly threatens the diversity of our food supply and will, in the end, give even greater power to large corporations to set the agenda on food in our country. As we've awakened, as a people, to a new level of health consciousness -- counting carbs, eating more natural foods, and watching our transfats -- the mass production food industry has struggled to adapt. It seems they'd rather not change. Our very right to seek out the foods and supplements we want is under attack. The National Animal Identification Act is part of that assault on our liberty.
On Sunday, my guest on the Downsize DC Conference Call is Celeste Bishop. Celeste was thrust from the tranquil farming life into a crusade opposing partnerships between Big Government and large agri-business that started when she got a 2005 USDA Agriculture Survey and noticed some odd information.
Now, Celeste is currently educating and mobilizing outraged citizens across the country concerned with the dangers of intrusive government farming regulations currently being implemented affecting our privacy, property, and our health. Celeste worked as a contractor for Homeland Security and FEMA, working locally specializing in emergency planning and operations, including the infamous day of 9-11. This gives her some unique insight in how government works.
She is currently the Washington State Coordinator for Liberty Ark and works also closely with NoNAIS.org.
