Only 15 Senators Vote To Stop FDA From Arresting People Without a Warrant
78 United States Senators have gone on the record as being in support of the power crazed FDA arresting small farmers without a warrant, many times decked out with guns and other high powered firearms.
The vote yesterday was in response to an amendment to S. 3187 submitted by Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky which would have stopped this egregious practice. The good news is that another amendment to the same bill submitted by FDA crony, Senator Dick Durbin (D) of Illinois was also voted down which would have greatly limited Americans’ access to nutritional supplements.
I was particularly surprised that one of my Senators, Mark Rubio (R) of Florida, did not vote for the amendment given that he is a so called “Tea Party” Senator who is for limiting government power and influence over people’s lives. Perhaps the rumors that he is the likely VP candidate for Mitt Romney are true and part of his establishment hazing is to break his campaign promises to the citizens of Florida.
Here is the list of the brave Senators who took a stand against warrantless arrests by an out of control FDA:
Kelly Ayotte (R-NH)
John Boozman (R-AR)
Jim Coburn (R-OK)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Mike Crapo (R-ID)
Jim DeMint (R-SC)
Mike Johanns (R-NE)
Ron Johnson (R-WI)
Mike Lee (R-UT)
Rand Paul (R-KY)
Jim Risch (R-ID)
John Thune (R-SD)
Pat Toomey (R-PA)
David Vitter (R-LA)
Roger Wicker (R-MS)
Surprising to me that not a single one is a Democrat. Keep this information in mind come November my friends!
