The clock is ticking in Washington and we have 48 hours left of farming freedom.Â With 3 easy emails or phone calls (your choice) you can do your part to ensure that the National Animal Identification System, NAIS, remains voluntary in Washington State.Â Why is Voluntary NAIS critical to Washington agriculture?
- Mandatory NAIS transforms your real property into a government-controlled premises.Â A government defined ‘Premises’ will not ensure that the food on your dinner plate is safe.Â If you sign up for Premises Registration you are allowing someone to tell you what you can or can’t do on your own property, and you will get to pay for that privilege.
- Mandatory NAIS electronic identification will not ensure the food you buy will be safe.Â In fact, scientific-evidence, shows a direct link between electronic identification and cancer!Â Ewwww, do you want cancer cells for dinner?
- Mandatory NAIS surveillance, tracing, tracking will not ensure the food you eat is safe.Â It is true government officials will know where outbreaks occur (psst…they already know through Google).Â When agriculture officials conduct unaccountable surveillance and tracking the result is that your small local farmers, the ones growing healthy food, are driven out of business due to over regulation by a stack of alphabet agencies. Suspect animals are not tested, but are inhumanely slaughtered, whether they are sick or not!Â This drives up the cost for your local food products.
One 4-ounce hamburger purchased at your local grocery store has come from as many as 1485 locations, most are out of the country.Â Ask your Legislator how Mandatory NAIS will make this one 4-ounce hamburger safe?Â COOL to the rescue?Â How are they going to fit all those locations on the label?Â And do you really have time to readÂ all the locations?Â Please do your part today by supporting Voluntary NAIS and help to restore the USDA and WSDA stamp of approval to their historically renowned quality, really making your hamburger or food of choice safe.
One last thought before you spring into action to save our food!Â Under public disclosure it was revealed that truckloads of diseased and undocumented cattle are flooding across the border headed straight for your dinner-plate.Â Vegan?Â Washingtonians have the same problem with your fruits and vegetables crop supply.
Why should you be forced to give up quality local food products while multi-national companies, in the food business solely for profit, make the big bucks while you and your family are subjected to an inferior and contaminated food supply?Â True Homeland Security is access to fresh and local food products with farmers and ranchers who are free to do what they do best, bringing you quality local food.
