Soi Disant -- or is that soy disant -- free people

We sure allow ourselves to be bullied by the Feds on food. Baylen J. Linnekin, Executive Director of Keep Food Legal, takes to Reason to list Ten Federal Food-Policy Issues Obama and Romney Should Discuss.

All ten are deeply depressing reminders of what we've given away. The Federal government performs paramilitary raids on raw milk, approves brand logos and packaging, gives (traditionally very bad) advice on nutrition, &c.

Trade all ten for the Tenth Amendment, good people.

"I've worked hard for every lump of coal I've taken out of the ground. And what do I have to show for it? I can't set my prices. I can't choose to whom I sell my product. The government takes what it wants, and taxes what it leaves behind!"

-Ken Dannager, Dannager Coal, Atlas Shrugged Part 2 (the movie)

It hasn't been as sudden or as obvious as 'Directive 10-289' but we are most of the way there, nonetheless.
