    You nitwits that keep saying we are going to lose this or lose that. Try thinking and listening once in a while.

    Take the milk thing for instance, he is talking about getting rid of FEDERAL control of it, states could take over the job. Do you get it????? It’s about removing FEDERAL stuff, and getting the states to do the jobs they were intended to do.

    It doesn’t mean there will be no protections, it just means the states will deal with them and not the federal government. Sheesh, it’s simple folks.

    Ron Paul has gone further over the edge than he has ever been with this one. Making it even more unlikely that he could ever be elected to dogcatcher. Folks, he doesn’t stand the slightest chance of ever being the president. Why not waste your lives on something more productive. Like pulling the wings off of flies. At least you would get the attention of the flies!

      What a useless bit of diatribe.

      I guess you think it’s better to stay doing what we are doing, going further into debt etc.

      You are certainly entitled to your opinion, as worthless as it is, see, I have an opinion too.

      The handwriting is on the wall whether you choose to see it or not.

          Hmm, let me get this right.

          I’m a stupid loser, because I believe in freedom, because I believe in our constitution, because I believe we are being sold out, because I believe in the ideas that founded this country?

          If YOU don’t believe in these things, then maybe you are in the wrong country. MY country. The one that I took an oath to defend the constitution from enemies foreign and domestic.

          If you are not FOR the constitution, then you are against it, if your are against it, hmm, you’re starting to look like a domestic enemy.

    How much freedom do we have if we are forbidden by the federal government from drinking whole natural milk? The answer is none. This is tyranny. If we aren’t being controlled in some area it is because they haven’t gotten around to it YET.
    Can Ron Paul be President? Only if WE give it our all. Unless you give your time, talent and money to this cause don’t expect it to happen. Dr. Paul can’t do it alone. It’s your life, your future. Decide and then live with that decision.

    I’ve been drinking raw milk for 20+ years. Luckily I live in California where it is legal. If raw milk is so dangerous, the FDA should put a skull and crossbones warning on it. While they are at it, they could put a similar warning label on strawberries, spinach, lettuce, and all other raw foods, because those are the foods that I remember being contaminated in the past, not raw milk. I don’t want my tax dollars used for policing raw milk.

    I think he needs to include human breast milk fed to babies in the bill.

    Just in the case the FDA decides to raid daycare centers for serving ‘unpasteurised milk’ (with a SWAT team I would guess).

  21. Everyone Here Is Stupid

    Soo, you do realize that unpasturized milk is completely legal, you can all still drink it and what you’re all complaining about is actually a protection measure put in place over 20 years ago by your government that says you cannot sell unpasturized milk OUTSIDE OF YOUR OWN STATE. This is a safety measure since it is more dangerous than pastuerized milk. So stop bitching about it.

    Everyone here who is crying to Ron Paul to save them from the media or w/e it is your afraid of… well guess what, you’ve just had a propaganda campaign run against you by your candidate! Way to understand politics and be rational independent beings.

      When the milk is heated in the pasteurization process, important things like the milks natural Lactase, Lipase, and Phosphatase, which helps with the breakdown of milk sugars (lactose), proteins, and the absorption of calcium, are destroyed eliminating the natural digestive support given by Mother Nature, herself. All the enzymes naturally found in milk are extremely heat sensitive making them some of the first things to go when milk is pasteurized.
      This process not only destroys the bad bacteria but also a lot of the good ones our bodies could use.
      pasteurization of milk or cheese kills all the probiotis in the milk that your body needs to properly digest the milk and that is why some people have allergies to milk or have lactose intolerance. It also zaps all of the enzymes and vitamins in the milk or cheese, and alters the protiens and fats in the milk. Raw milk has lactase and other enzymes which aid digestion and actually kill germs like salmonella only if it comes from grass fed free range cows. if you get milk that is not from grass feed free range cows you get problems because cows are meant to eat grass not corn, and exercise and move about. If the cows is not healthy before it dies you will catch some kid of sickness from drinking the milk or eating the cheese. Finally most of the milk in these studies and sold in Super Markets around the world is from conventionally grain-fed cattle. These cows are forced to walk around in there own feces and the fecal matter of other cows, which is why they all usually get sick and need to be fed antibiotics. As you can probably imagine cows that walks around in poop all day and are force fed food they were never meant to eat are going to produce milk that is filled with nasty bacterias, antibiotics, and viruses.
      A1 Beta-Casein is the nasty stuff associated with the release of beta-casomorphin-7, which is an opioid-like chemical released upon digestion. This protein fragment is what normally causes the joint pain, digestive issues, and leaky gut generally related to all casein. This is normally because the kind of dairy cow that produces A1 Beta-Caseins (Holsteins and Friesians, these are your typical black and white cows), also produce more milk per cow, so they are the favored dairy cows of the conventional factory farmed dairy industry. The A2 Beta-Casein produced by cow breeds like Jerseys and Gurnseys cows (brown and white cows), hasn’t been shown to cause the same problems with gut irritation, joint pain, or leaky gut problems. So if you insist on drinking milk, or doing a GOMAD protocol try and stick to the brown cows, the Masai did and did pretty well on it. A2 dairy is also associated with Goats milk which also seems to be less of a problem for even lactose/casein intolerant people.

        A good book on the importance of raw milk is called the raw truth about milk: here is a summary of it, All that pasteurization, homogenization and processing is not only cooking all the nutrients right out of your favorite drink. It’s also adding toxic levels of vitamin D. This fascinating book tells the whole story about milk. How it once was nature’s nearly perfect food…How “raw,” unprocessed milk can heal and boost your immune system. Here is a link to the book called the raw truth about milk:http://www.amazon.com/Raw-Truth-About-Milk/dp/9962636736/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_2

    We must be truly brainwashed by now. In the day and age of our founding fathers who had no access to the media, they would have still realized they were being abused and marched down to the capital and removed the current leaders from power.

    How are we being brainwashed? By the thing that our founding fathers did not have, the media. Everyday all we here is a two sided argument, not between good and evil, but between arrogant warmongering idiot and arrogant welfare-spewing idiot, and usually we have to choose one of those idiots to be our leader (Ron Paul is an exception). Both sides seek to waste our money, the only difference is that one gets our sons and daughters killed and the other gives our money to immigrants, foreign nations, and pretty much everyone other than the American people.

    Why are we not marching on D.C. right now? This is absurd.

      Weston A. Price (1870-1948) discovered what health is made of, and proved it. In the early 1930s Price and his wife (“Mrs Price”) travelled more than 100,000 miles to study the diets and health of isolated primitive peoples in Africa, South America, Australia, Polynesia, Europe and northern Canada, at a time when such communities still existed. He was the head of the american dental association.
      Price undertook amazing journeys into the wilds to seek out people “who were living in accordance with the tradition of their race and as little affected as might be possible by the influence of the white man”.
      Weston A. Price
      Wherever he found them — regardless of race, diet and climate — they were a “picture of superb health”: they had superb physiques, perfect teeth, no arthritis, no tuberculosis, no degenerative diseases, and they were cheerful, happy, hardy folk.
      That changed radically when he compared them to other, less isolated groups of the same peoples, charting a catastrophic health decline the closer they got to the “trade foods” produced by industrial society (processed foods grown by synthetic farming methods), in the shape of the “white man’s store”.
      He found it takes only one generation of eating industrialized food to destroy health and immunity, including pasteurized food.
      Price was a fine scientist and a thorough investigator and collected an enormous amount of data with thousands of supporting photographs — his case simply doesn’t leave any room for argument. We are all victims. But he leaves us with the promise of regeneration. Thwarted health can be recaptured.
      he pubished his research in a book called nutrition and physical degeneration in 1939. Here is the link to his book. read it and then reply to me: http://journeytoforever.org/farm_library/price/pricetoc.html

    I grew up on raw milk raised at home in California. Back to China where I just visited! They have more freedom now than we do!

    America faces tyranny to families (CPS abducting and exploiting children of good families), their food supply and livelihoods (FDA targeting honest Amish farmers), their children’s religious upbringing (government indoctrination into naturalism religion), their homes and national wealth (siphoned off to corrupt bankers), and their money (manipulated and devaluated at the whim of the FED).

    Beyond this, all 10 of my rights in the Bill of Rights have been violated. Who cares? I want to know. Dr. Paul, I can tell you more if you email me. You’d hardly believe; Nor have I met anyone else who had all ten violated.

    They should just open the spillways a little bit in anticipation for the flood season and then a bureaucratic nightmare of which citizens to flood out would not ensue.
