Allow Interstate Commerce in Raw Milk
Co-Sponsor and Support Ron Paul's H.R. 1830!
"YES! You DO own your own body and ought ot get to decide what goes into it! Despite the FDA's assertion that you have no such right, Dr. Paul and Natural Solutions Foundation know differently!"
I am outraged by [the April 2011 FDA armed] raid [on a peaceable Raw Milk producer] and the many others like it, and that is why last week I introduced HR 1830, a bill to allow the shipment and distribution of unpasteurized milk and milk products for human consumption across state lines. This legislation removes the unconstitutional restraint on farmers who wish to sell or otherwise distribute, and people who wish to consume, unpasteurized milk and milk products.
Many Americans have done their own research and come to the conclusion that unpasteurized milk is healthier than pasteurized milk. These Americans have the right to consume these products without having the federal government second-guess their judgment or thwart their wishes. If there are legitimate concerns about the safety of unpasteurized milk, those concerns should be addressed at the state and local level.
I am hoping my colleagues in the House will join me in promoting individual rights, the original intent of the Constitution, and federalism by cosponsoring this legislation to allow the interstate shipment of unpasteurized milk and milk products for human consumption.
If we are not even free anymore to decide something as basic as what we wish to eat or drink, how much freedom do we really have left?"
Dr. Ron Paul, Member of Congress
This Action Item asks your Members of Congress to become Co-Sponors of this important legislation. Many patriots rightly complain that the "Interstate Commerce Clause" of the Constitution has been misapplied to allow unprecedented Federal interventions in our private lives. This is one case where the Clause has its proper, limited application: promoting free trade among the States.
