Whenever a Government Becomes Destructive, Health Freedoms Diminish

(NaturalNews) Every week seems to bring yet another new issue calling for action to stop the FDA from taking one step after another which will further erode our safety and restrict our access to products and information we should have a Natural God given right to.

It is past time for "we the people" to demand agencies which look after our interests first and those of industry second. We seem to have forgotten that government rules only with the consent of the governed and only has rights that we grant it. Sadly, we have been granting our rights away for so long that some agencies feel they can take them away at will. As a result, we are seeing the results of our actions, or inactions, in losses of basic freedoms and rights across the board. The FDA is a glaring example. They have become their own law unto themselves, reaching beyond their mandate and charter -- and getting away with it because we and our elected officials let them dupe us.

From its inception, the FDA was a deceptive creation which has always served industry and big money at the expense of the little people. It was created that way and any ideas to the contrary are merely a deliberate illusion.

"The FDA `protects` the big drug companies and are subsequently rewarded, and using the government`s police powers they attack those who threaten the big drug companies. People think that the FDA is protecting them.

It isn`t.

What the FDA is doing and what the public thinks it is doing are as different as night and day." - Dr. Herbert Ley, Former U.S. FDA Commissioner

We are losing the war with our present approach, fighting a never-ending series of battles where, even if you win most of the skirmishes, you lose the war because every single victory they achieve, every covert insertion of wording into bills that slips by, every power they arbitrarily take and get away with, limits our freedoms and choices and increases their powers.

What we need to do is tear it down and start all over with an agency that is largely of, for and by the people -- one where our health and our rights come first and serving industry comes second. Such an agency should be made up of a majority of citizens beholden to no agency or agenda other than protecting and serving our health, with a minority of representatives coming from both the mainstream and alternative medicine.

Somehow we have been brainwashed to think that it is un-American and unpatriotic to oppose the actions of our government or its agencies and that we are supposed to believe that every action and utterance is for our good and not to be doubted as gospel truth -- no matter how outrageous the information we are fed: weapons of mass destruction, global warming, harmful vitamins, forced vaccinations, genetically modified foods, acceptable levels of contamination... the list is endless.

As our freedoms have become eroded more and more by the greedy and the powerful to the point that our forefathers would scarcely recognize what we have become, we have increasingly heard that to oppose these loss of freedoms makes us traitors. In fact, just the opposite is true: we are traitors to our country and to ourselves when we fail to oppose tyranny.

We were founded on the principles of standing up to tyranny and oppression of our natural God given rights, and it is expected of us, nay it is our duty, to take action when the government no longer is responsive to the people who gave it the right to govern in the first place.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government..."

It is time for us to return to our founding principles and, as patriotic Americans in the spirit of our founders, start taking back control of our lives and our rights. The issue of the freedom of our bodies and our health is a great place to start.

It should be no different for the people in Europe, whose citizens have also fought hard for freedoms that are being eroded -- the issues are the same, as are the profiteers and those behind the loss of freedoms.

If we fail to act, we will find that we have condemned ourselves and our future generations to less freedoms in a greatly diminished and unhealthy world.

"In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties." - Henri-Frederic Amiel, 1828-1881
