pol white house 263x164 Fight Back, Vote them Out: 71 Senators Who Betrayed You by Not Labeling GMOsYour voice and your vote can go a long way. The fight against GMO companies is not over, no matter how deep their pockets are. It is estimated that GMO companies like Monsanto have spent upwards of $750 million buying off members of the senate and congress with special interest money and possible bribes, and if not money than scare tactics, but we won’t stand for it. Just the money that has been openly pumped into the Senate and House amounts to $122,000 and $260,00 respectively, and you know there’s a lot more where that came from.

Roy Blunt, a Republican from Monsanto’s home state, Missouri, for instance, has been paid more than $240,000 by agribusiness in the recent past, and the numbers and amounts of these pay-offs seem to be growing. Furthermore, this is just the senate; it was only recently that more than 50 House members rejected another bill that would require GMO labeling.

These people are still spewing lies like by saying things like “genetically modified foods will feed the world.” That’s what Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) tried to say in front of her peers and the world just before the vote. This is completely falsified opinion, and not based on real science. There are hundreds of horticulturalists, scientists and farmers who think differently – who think that organic and sustainable, small-scale farming can suffice.

Following is the alphabetical list of almost the entire senate who betrayed you by voting 71 against 27 to kill the bill that would force Monsanto and other Big Pharma companies that make or sell GMO foods to label products as such at the discretion of each individual state. It’s time to name names. NaturalSociety has given you this list before, but it’s time to vote these people OUT!

Note: The March Against Monsanto that happened in May of this year was a major success, but we’re taking things a step further. Join the Monsanto Video Revolt that will occur on July 24th, 2013. Millions of people will partake to bombard the internet with anti-Monsanto/anti-GMO videos to raise public awareness – get involved!

You can also call your senator, your president, and the Congress. Bombard their offices with emails, letters, and peaceful demonstrations. Let them know that you are not just one voice, but that you are telling your friends, your neighbors, your Facebook, Pinterest and Google+ friends, and your supporters in other countries, even. Activism works if we all stand together. We can’t let the bullies win by paying off the people we voted into office.  It’s time for some major house (and senate) cleaning.

    I am from michigan and Debbie Stabenow is the biggest dumb puppet political whore that ever was.. I wouldn't trust her with anything. They helped kill detroit.

  • skywatcher

    I just don't understand, what is happening to the world we live in? Well yes I do, they want us all to die. GMO's, chemtrails, flouride, vaccines, anything that will do us harm. I'm sure anyone can add more to my list as it is so many things. Our government does nothing but what big corporations want, they take our constitutional rights away. They fight like children and don't do their jobs let alone earn their pay. Very few people care about these issues or what goes on as long as they have their stupid TV programs and toys. No wonder the gov gets away with this crap! They do everything they can to protect the rich and want to do chained CPI to seniors, cut anything and everything for middle class and poor, it's all for the rich. Nothing the people want ever gets done. The banks and corporations run the show. If I was only younger I'd leave this country.

    The senators did not betray anyone at all. They did you a favor by not voting on this bill.

    Has anyone realized by now that 'labeling' laws' and people are actually in alliance WITH Monsanto, not against?

    The 'Prop 37 labeling' movement' held a public meeting recently with LUCE who is an organization in collusion
    with the UN Agenda 21.

    The 'labeling laws' are attempting to pass so that Monsanto can finally lock out any kind of ban or extiniction of GMO's and GE's in your city and town – and take over your city.

    The 'labeling' propaganda is now showing it's unintended consequences and the continued support
    is going reap more unintended consequences.
    Monsanto doesn't suffer at all.

    Barbara H. Peterson (via

    While everyone is focused on labeling GMOs instead of banning them, Monsanto is hard at work making sure that local communities and counties are prohibited from banning the planting of GMOs. The state version of the Monsanto Protection Act just past the Oregon Senate:

    Senate Bill 633: Relating to the preemption of local laws regulating agriculture. Makes legislative finding and declaration that regulation of agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed and products of agricultural seed, flower seed, nursery seed and vegetable seed be reserved to state.

    So, while we hop on the labeling bandwagon, Monsanto is pleased as punch because behind the scenes, it is working with the government to make sure that no county can ban them. Who cares if they are labeled if you control the agency that is responsible for labeling. By the time watered-down labels go through, if they do, it will be game, set, match if bans are in effect banned by Monsanto in collusion with state governments, and labeling is a mere charade concocted by….. Monsanto, of course!

    Get to your city and get involved before Monsanto moves in and poisons your own city for good –
    and tries to ban the entire country from any kind of law prohibiting the GMO BAN.

    The government is not your friend.

    Hiya this petition on Avaaz to strip Monsanto’s Robert Fraley’s 2013World Food Prize. Fraley developed Roundup Ready Soy, and is the reason he was awarded the prize. Please share the petition on your networks, email to friends, make it go everywhere..…?

    Truly do you blame corporations?
    God give a day to worship. Genesis 1 (For the once who belief in Bible)
    Satan imposes a false Day.

    God say you should not eat from the good and evil tree because you will die.
    Satan say God knows that if you eat you will become like God and you will not die.

    God describe the food that Man should eat.
    And Satan wants to produce food that will make you sick Satan has used this corp. (it’s not Monsanto fault, it is on Satan Hans)

    God wants man to live healthy.
    Satan wants humanity to die.

    It’s our fault for not blast our government in protesting, who permit these blasphemy. Our government it’s who should we focused on to stop these crimes.

    I think you are doing the right thing and I am a grate supporter but by attacking the corporation we are not succeeding, as we should attack the main head of our nation for betray USA citizens, so the head of the nation has to be thrown off of office.

    The one who signed Monsanto protection and all of those Senators that betray USA Citizens.

    He is not good for the people of our great nation. He signed.
