I can’t even say “…if our founding fathers only knew” – OF COURSE THEY KNOW THIS IS HAPPENING – they are the angels that will help lead us out of the dark hour that our country faces.
If you haven’t had a chance to look at Executive Order 13575 – Establishment of the White House Rural Council - then you may want to. What this equates to is the complete control of our food supply by the federal government. All with an executive order from President Barack Obama. The Secretary of Agriculture chairs this council and this new council includes just a few of the government’s finest and most efficient (and transparent) agencies including: Department of the Treasury, Department of Defense, Department of Justice, Department of the Interior, Department of Commerce, Department of Labor, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Housing and Urban Development, Department of Transportation, Department of Energy, Department of Education, Department of Veteran Affairs, Department of Homeland Security, Environmental Protection Agency, the Federal Communications Commission, the Office of Management and Budget, the Office of Science and Technology Policy, the Office of National Drug Control Policy, the Council of Economic Advisers, the Domestic Policy Council, the National Economic Council, the Small Business Administration, the Council on Environmental Quality, the White House Office of Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, the Office of Cabinet Affairs, and ANY OTHER executive branch agencies as the President and the Secretary of Agriculture may designate.
THEY MAY AS WELL JUST SAY – THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CAN DO ANYTHING AT ANY TIME WITH RURAL COMMUNITIES IF IT DEEMS SO NECESSARY. (If you have any appreciation for freedom – you will realize that this is near-tyrannical.)
ALL OF THESE AGENCIES and ALL OF THESE PEOPLE are supposed to make rural communities stronger. If you haven’t been paying attention to the past 50 years of history – the federal government is supposed to protect our freedoms so that we can be strong (so theoretically, if the federal government was doing its job an keeping its nose out of our business, then we would be much more prosperous and productive = stronger communities) – however, we the people have forgotten that the federal government WORKS FOR US. Do we really think that having a broad over-reaching executive order will help? NO – NO it won’t – the only thing to help rural communities is to allow them to be free and to engage in commerce. Period. It is a bit more complex than that, but no more complex than the insanity of this Executive Order 13575 which will COMPLETELY SQUANDER the freedom of people who grow food, sell food, live and work in rural communities, etc.
States and localities must step up and stop the broad over-reaching power of the federal government. We are our only chance.
