    It amazes me...the number of Americans that have no idea what The Constitution was meant to do for The People. I am not but a drone in the hive. I am an individual and will make my own choices. Go to Venezuela if you absolutely must regulate! There about half the population won't mind if you do.

    Then maybe you and yours and yours should avoid any FDA-approved food.

    The problem with these type issues is people's judgement gets so clouded with anti-government sentiment they can only see the bad, never the good.

    Why can't you just stay out of other people's business? Don't be such a busy body and take care of yourself. Oh, and by the way, take a gander at the poll results.

    Quotes from Ayn Rand:

    "Individual rights are not subject to a public vote; a majority has no right to vote away the rights of a minority; the political function of rights is precisely to protect minorities from oppression by majorities (and the smallest minority on earth is the individual)."

    "It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master."

    "Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims."

    Plus my signature line.

    The gubmint IS in my life, that doesn't mean I have to want more.

    That is called a "conditioned response" or "Pavlovian response"... Happens all the time...

    Sure, why not control my diet? The government is all ready shoving so much S&$t down my throat that is bad for me, it gives me a warm fuzzy knowing they will at least not be putting salt on it! :)
