Julius Caesar once declared, "Veni, Vidi, Vici! -- "I came, I saw, I conquered" to assert his victory and remind the senate of his military prowess. Ironically, today it is the American people who have declared, Veniebamus, Videbamus, Vincemus! - We Came, We Saw, We Conquered to remind the senate of the power of the people of the greatest nation to ever walk planet Earth --The People of United States of America!
VPX/Redline would like to thank everyone for their support in responding to our request to take action by e-mailing a letter to John McCain. All of you who took your precious time and take action stopped the so called, "Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, S. 3002" dead in its tracks! The anti-supplement bill, "S. 3002" was offered this February and crushed less than one month later last Thursday, March 4, 2010! You made your voices heard loud and clear and congress listened! There's been no official tally but my guess is that millions of you objected via e-mail to this proposed highly suppressive bill.
The fact is that American consumers love their dietary supplements and want less, not more regulation. We want less of Big Pharma trying to force drugs down our throats and more sophisticated and efficacious supplements. The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, S. 3002 would cripple dietary supplement innovation like the Codex Alimentarius has in Europe and other parts of the world. The Codex Alimentarius makes criminals out of ordinary persons like yourself who want to use dietary supplements to improve health, vitality and performance. "Codex" is a global political and pharmaceutical drug cartel designed to hand over the control of natural supplements to the pharmaceutical giants. The Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, S. 3002 would be the foundation to launch the Codex Alimentarius right here in America and give drug companies and the government the right to destroy what health freedoms DSHEA has accomplished. The fact that American consumers love their dietary supplements and want less, not more regulation is proven by the hard data demonstrating that in one of the worst economies in decades dietary supplement sales increased significantly in 2009! During America's financial crisis in 2008 and 2009 the dietary supplement industry was one of our nation's only industries that had economic growth. The passing of any bill that would jeopardize the dietary supplement industry is counter to the health, best interest and desire of American citizens. Furthermore, the passing of any bill so highly detrimental to the USA's economic growth and well being and is outright ANTI-AMERICAN!
In closing I'd like to thank you again for your pro-active support in stopping the "Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010, S. 3002" DEAD IN ITS TRACKS! Dietary supplements are 100 times safer than OTC drugs, pharmaceutical drugs, tobacco and alcohol and, therefore, these are the industries that congress needs to be focusing on, cleaning up and making safer!
If law enforcement did their job and arrested the persons involved in adulterating dietary supplements with steroids and sex drug analogs, this challenge would have been solved long ago and there would be no issue. Professional sports and the Olympics have major problems with steroids and a myriad of other performance enhancing and muscle building drugs. In conjunction with anti-doping institutes, these organizations work together to deceive the world by blaming dietary supplements for their organization's drug epidemic. The citizens of America and the Dietary Supplement industry are sick of these lies and demand an end to this mass deception immediately. Shouldn't the Olympic Committee be focusing on the death and massive injuries during the 2010 Winter Olympics instead of lying to the world about dietary supplements?
Between all the industries involved in dietary supplements including functional beverages in regard to freight, all aspects of shipping, gas, retail and wholesale sales, distribution, packaging, manufacturing, trade shows, health food stores like GNC, Vitamin Shoppe, Vitamin World, big box stores like Walgreens, CVS, WalMart, grocery stores, C-Stores like 7-Eleven, and workout facilities like Bally's Fitness and 24 Hour Fitness, our economy would lose billions of dollars if an anti-supplement bill like this was passed into law. Therefore I declare all organizations and individuals who threaten the great Dietary Supplement Industry as UNAMERICAN! WE THE PEOPLE DEMAND AN END TO YOUR TOMFOOLERY!
I will be calling staunch dietary supplement supporter, Senator Hatch this week to set up a meeting to strengthen DSHEA on behalf of all Americans and on behalf of the wellbeing and recovery of the American economy!
