O beautiful, for spacious skies,
For Monsanto waves of grain,
 
 
For purple mountain majesties
Above the pesticided plain!

To help stop Monsanto-influenced bills in Congress now that will eliminate small and organic farming in the US,  send a message to your Congressmen.  Please forward to friends and family.  
 
 
America! America! God shed His grace on thee,
[or Nature, for some] 
And crown thy good with brotherhood, from sea to shining sea.

The Monsanto-influenced bills are the ultimate threat facing small farms today in part because they mandate the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). The USDA wants to microchip and track every livestock animal on every farm and home in the United States and register every premises where such an animal lives or passes.  Besides the exorbitant cost of this program, the loss of our rights, the stress placed on our animals, and the increased government control, drive most independent farmers out of business.  Those who remain will be industrial workers within a regime dictated by the industrial side.  
 
Without small farms, the products we have grown accustomed to enjoying would cease to exist. We would be totally dependent on huge agri-business for all our food products. Our life and our health would be in their hands. While this benefits huge agribusiness, it will destroy independent farms, our health and democracy.
 
To help stop Monsanto-influenced bills in Congress now that will eliminate small and organic farming in the US,  send a message to your Congressmen.  Please forward to friends and family.

Met libertarian and conservative farmers and learned an incredible amount about farming and nature and science, as well as about government violations against them and against us all. The other side of the fence is nothing like what we've been (more...)
