These fools must be stopped. Our representatives are supposed to protect us from such theivery, yet they aid and abet them and tell us its for our own good. Then they get re-elected year after year.

In general, I agree. Too much of the “safety police” mentality. I must applaud the FDA in one area, though. I’m a celiac, as are two of my three brothers, and two (so far) of my five kids. I do applaud the FDA as far the regs go that ensure that I can tell when wheat, barley or rye products are in something I might otherwise buy. So, as far as the gluten-free or lack thereof contents listings go, great, that helps me a lot. But on the other hand, they (the FDA) need to cease attempts to lecture or otherwise restrict people above the age of majority buying what foods they wish.

Government is completely out of control. IMO, it's unlikely that this can be fixed by an election as no one has the guts to run for office on the concept that we MUST fire hundreds of thousands of government employees and eliminate the bureaucracies completeley. In fact no one will even talk about it. They will talk shrinking government but will never face up to the fact that that means FIRING people.

It's going to take a Constitutional Convention to regain our freedom. We are way to far over the cliff to fight all the bureaucracies and all the people that are running our lives and earning very comfortable livings with our money.

So, they want to limit or do away with salt in food??

It’s bad enough now that I have to add extra salt to all my food. I have “low” blood pressure and the only med is salt to raise my bp. Of course, I guess I could go to a lib website to get my bp up, but I hate those sites.
