    As predicted GM contaminates. Have any politicians actually looked at the contamination problem with GM? Do they actually care about the future or are they so manipulated by the GM corporations that they are too greedy counting their money that they cannot see the real issue of our food supply that will give no choice to farmers or consumers? There are health issues, there are contamination issues and the non-GM farmer has to prove that he is not GM or pay the penalty. Yes, that’s right.

    The non-GM farmer has to pay to test his/her seed to prove that they are not GM. And if contamination is found, they have to pay the Monsanto penalty in fines, and from that moment on, have to purchase GM seed. This is a disgrace to any government that they cannot see what is happening or want to know. They are blindfolded by their greed.

    The government is supposed to protect the people not force them into slavery.
