Amish Farmer's on Terror Watch List? It must be the Radioactive Pickles from Homeland Security

Headline: New rules are hurdles to Amish farmers with old ways "Products that require licensing through the state include relishes and pickled products, butter, milk, cheese and yogurt, and canned products." How ever did we consume milk, cheese and yogurt before it was approved by the FDA?

The founders of this country included farmers, much like the Amish of today. I would be hard-pressed to believe that James Madison wrote the Constitution so that one day the government would require people to ask permission before they could grow and sell food.

Scared of Amish pickles? The food approved by the FDA is often way more "toxic" than the homemade organic jams and pickles of the Amish community.

One industry pays tribute to Big Government and one group with no lobbyists merely wants to continue the agricultural practices passed down from generations prior. If grandpa didn't have to ask for permission, why do we? This is the insanity of modern-day America. We the People have forgotten our relationship to government. It is the bureaucrats that must ask permission of us, not the other way around.

Most of the questions regarding permission have already been answered in the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. You don't have to ask for permission; your government does. Remember, the Bill of Rights was designed to restrict the power of government, NOT the people. For instance, "the RIGHT of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed."

That statement is a constraint on the feds, whom our founders knew would one day try to usurp the tools that allow a free people to remain free. Since a zebra can't change its stripes and a scorpion doesn't come without a stinger, what makes you think that government is your benevolent protector just because it is draped in the U.S. flag?

Twenty-first century Americans would do well to remember about which the founders of our country warned us -- it is our government that is the greatest threat to our liberty. Obama and McCain are not allowed to let such simple and obvious truth leave their lips. Change? Please remove the cotton from the pill bottles that were given to you by Big PHARMA. John-boy and Barack will bring you plenty of the same. How long before they put all Amish farmers on the Terror Watch List?

Homeland Security will probably claim that they are pickling in radioactive water. Embrace freedom. If you want good quality food that has been made the same way for generations, then hug an Amish farmer and thank them before it's too late. Where do I apply for a license to hug? You know it's only a matter of time...
