Ron Paul's Health Freedom Plank

Over the past few days the Ron Paul 2008 Campaign has been consulting with us; within the past hour the Campaign posted a powerful statement regarding Health Freedom on their Issues web page: (bottom issue on the right)

The text reads:

"Health Freedom

Americans are justifiably concerned over the government’s escalating intervention into their freedom to choose what they eat and how they take care of their health.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), in order to comply with standards dictated by supra-national organizations such as the UN‘s World Food Code (CODEX), NAFTA, and CAFTA, has been assuming greater control over nutrients, vitamins and natural health care providers to restrict your right to choose the manner in which you manage your health and nutritional needs.
I have been the national leader in preserving Health Freedom.

I have introduced the Health Freedom Protection Act, HR 2117, to ensure Americans can receive truthful health information about supplements and natural remedies.

I support the Access to Medical Treatment Act, H.R. 746, which expands the ability of Americans to use alternative medicine and new treatments.

I oppose legislation that increases the FDA‘s legal powers. FDA has consistently failed to protect the public from dangerous drugs, genetically modified foods, dangerous pesticides and other chemicals in the food supply. Meanwhile they waste public funds attacking safe, healthy foods and dietary supplements

I also opposed the Homeland Security Bill, H.R. 5005, which, in section 304, authorizes the forced vaccination of American citizens against small pox. The government should never have the power to require immunizations or vaccinations."

With this strong pro-Health Freedom statement, Dr. Paul once more shows himself to be a true friend of every American. He clearly challenges the statist assumptions of the federal political establishment and further sets himself apart from their failed policies. As someone recently remarked, "This country is sick and needs a good doctor... not another d----d lawyer..."

Thank you Dr. Paul!
