Dear Senator McCain
We understand that you are very anti-agriculture. This grieves us deeply, for even though you have our vote (We will NEVER vote for a socialist...which is what Barack Obama is.), we do so with heavy heart.
We have reason to believe that you're following Bruce Babbitt's way. Believe me, that man has done everything he can to shut down not only the Agricultural industry in America, but ALL resource production.
Truly Senator McCain, Babbitt is a horrible man who's deeply entrenched with the likes of Al Gore and other eco-fascists like Jon Marvel. We caution you on even having Babbitt anywhere near you. He and his gang have reeked havoc on the cattle industry in particular. They've burdened cattle producers for years, with unfair rules, regulations, responsibilities and on, trying to put the U.S. Cattle Industry out of business.
We understand hundreds of thousands of folks in the ag business are voting for Obama, simply because he's a friend to ag.
Please read the following, as it will explain everything regards how critical American agriculture is to national security, that we have a president who is a friend to domestic resource production.
The 1796 Old Farmer's Almanac said:
"The cultivation of the earth ought ever to be esteemed as the most useful and necessary employmentin life. The food, and raiment, by which all other orders of men are supported, are derived from the earth.
Agriculture is of consequence, the art which supports, supplies, and maintains all the rest."
Two hundred years ago, agriculture was everything. Agriculture was of consequence!
But as time marched on, there evolved a huge knowledge disconnect between agricultural producers and those who make law.
More than any other occupation, farmers and ranchers are forced to deplete their personal income and time, trying to protect America's food supplies. Yes. This is true. Each day one cashes in their child's college fund, their pension plan, insurance policy, acreage or water, for the sole reason of finding ways to keep bringing safe, nutritious food to us.
If others had to spend equal time and money defending their business, they'd have to close down. Daily, farmers and ranchers are forced to wrestle with policies including endangered species, conservation easements, water, trade and bogus global warming claims that subsequently jeopardize our food supply and national security.
In 1729, Giles Jacob stated:
First: No man is to deprive another of his property, or disturb him in enjoying it.
Secondly, every person is bound to take due care of his own property, so as the neglect thereof may not injure his neighbor.
Thirdly, all persons must so use their right, that they do not ... damage their neighbor's property."
"Sic utere tuo ut non laedas" Translated: "So to use your own as not to injure another."
This is what being a Good Neighbor is about: Use your own so as not to injure another.
Senator McCain, you know better than most, that our government has combined with "jurisdictions foreign to our Constitution" to usurp our legislative process, and mandate law without our consent. Over a period of about 40 years, jurisdictions foreign - like Al Gore, Bruce Babbitt, Sierra Club, World Wildlife Fund, Nature Conservancy, Natural Resource Defense Fund, Greenpeace, have combined with the European Union to build an eco-movement and laws gravely corrosive to our American Republic. Can you imagine what would happen if the urban person tries to grow food in their yard? Most likely they'll get sued by Homeowners Association, WWF, EPA, NEPA, NAIS, CWA, TNC, LOST, USDA, IRS and ESA, for un-wittingly doing things with common mice, water, dirt, manure, herbicides, insecticides, disease, animals, tools, fertilizer, buildings, identification, electrical, fuel, attire or zoning. A country unable to feed itself is a country ripe for takeover. Yet our government with its mega-rich eco-partners has made a choice as to who gets to dine. And 99.9% of us weren't invited.
As my husband Chuck once said, " While our opinions on wars, economic conditions, religion and politics differ dramatically, and some may care less who the Rockies recruit to play ball, we do agree and care deeply about one thing: FOOD. We all eat!"
Elie Wiesel knows intimately the danger a hungry country faces; it becomes ripe for takeover by a dictator! A survivor of the Holocaust, he wrote his heart wrenching autobiography in his book "Night." When he received the Nobel Peace Prize for "Night", Elie firmly cautioned, "We must take sides."
Any entity wanting to sell their idea (whether new law, policy, treaty or a product), should have to present it to the peoples who would be most impact. If refused, that should be the end of it! We think you'd agree that never, should our government mandate purchase of an idea or product the parties most impact can't afford, don't want, don't need.
Americans should join together to ensure domestic resource production has every opportunity to grow strong and be healthy enough to hold up our nation.
Because we know agriculture is of consequence, we struggle each day to preserve it.
Senator McCain, do you think America can afford to swing the door wide open to socialism? That's what will happen if you continue to ignore agriculture, and good people end up begrudgingly voting for Obama.
Please study www.GoodNeighborLaw.com. It contains a wealth of FACTS pertaining to domestic resource production, Al Gore's global warming myth, and more. Good Neighbor is run totally by volunteers. We have not been bought off, therefore are the purest website for this kind of information one can get.
We'd be honored to meet with and brief you on Ag. Chuck (Sylvester) was the General Manager of the world's largest livestock show "The National Western Livestock Show and Rodeo," for 25 years. You won't find a more fair, rock solid, knowledgeable resource in the world when it comes to agriculture. Use him! Please.
