Health Freedom Score Card… From Ron Paul's political campaign
So will our Presidential Campaign Health Freedom Score Card, ( http://salsa.democracyinaction
They said we should PLEASE stop faxing and we said that we would do so if:
- They provide us with an email address so that we don't have to keep faxing and
- They answer our specific health freedom questions and let us know where they stand on these vital questions which affect your life and mine (like "Should children be taken away from their families for compulsory drugging under any circumstances" and "Should we support FDA and other government agencies in their Harmonizing with Codex standards and guidelines?")
Senator Mike Gravel's campaign manager gave us an email address and promised us that we would receive Senator Gravel's answers in the next couple of weeks. Senator Obama's campaign pleaded with us to stop faxing and gave us an email address to use instead. (We are faxing your requests for answers to our Score Card questions to all the rest of the candidates, by the way.) We told both Senator Gavel's and Obamas's campaigns that the quickest way to halt the tsunami of communications would be to answer our questions and tell us what their candidate's Health Freedom Plank in their presidential campaign is.
So far only one candidate, Dr. Ron Paul, has adopted a Health Freedom Plank that meets most of our concerns. Here it is:
Americans are justifiably concerned over the government's escalating intervention into their freedom to choose what they eat and how they take care of their health.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to comply with standards dictated by supra-national organizations such as the UN's World Food Code (CODEX), NAFTA, and CAFTA, has been assuming greater control over nutrients, vitamins and natural health care providers to restrict your right to choose the manner in which you manage your health and nutritional needs.
I have been the national leader in preserving Health Freedom.
I have introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117, to ensure Americans can receive truthful health information about supplements and natural remedies.
I support the Access to Medical Treatment Act, H.R. 2717, which expands the ability of Americans to use alternative medicine and new treatments.
I oppose legislation that increases the FDA's legal powers. FDA has consistently failed to protect the public from dangerous drugs, genetically modified foods, dangerous pesticides and other chemicals in the food supply. Meanwhile they waste public funds attacking safe, healthy foods and dietary supplements
I also opposed the Homeland Security Bill, H.R. 5005, which, in section 304, authorizes the forced vaccination of American citizens against small pox. The government should never have the power to require immunizations or vaccinations."
We will continue to report to you developments and invite you to send your message to the candidates, if you haven't already done so, click on Presidential Campaign Health Freedom Score Card, ( http://salsa.democracyinaction
