Motivation of big money raises questions on I-522

LaceyOctober 13, 2013 

Many of the statements on the no side of I-522 I agree with. However, I strongly agree that it is not unreasonable to want to know what is in the food we eat.

Regardless of the Yeas and Nays on this issue, there is one underlying fact that concerns me more. And that is the big money behind not wanting the American public to know what’s in the food we eat. The big money I am referring to is Monsanto, DuPont and Bayer. The same bunch that pronounced that Agent Orange was simply a defoliant and would not hurt anyone. And may I ask, how has that turned out?

There are those that would argue that these chemical companies have done much for the good of mankind; for which I agree — but again I ask — what might be the real reasons chemical companies would spend millions against telling the American public what is in our food? It must not be money. They are spending millions against telling us. What is the big picture?

Think about it, choose wisely and vote.
