Run The Country to promote a GMO Free USA and world, plant-based diets, and active lifestyles.
Safe and Healthy Food Supply
The world’s food supply is under siege. Powerful multi-national corporations such as Monsanto have laid claim to food—from the DNA within the world’s seeds, to the plants those seeds become, to the products produced from those plants. And now through biotechnology, corporations routinely release genetically modified organisms and their partner poisons into the environment. Once released, these organisms and poisons contaminate and pollute natural plants, animals, soil, air, and water. Biotech corporations create GMOs, but they can’t control them. Neither can they control the extent of the damage that has and will result as these organisms and poisons continue to pollute the world and sicken natural species, including you and your children.
These corporations control governments, and bribe, threaten, sue, and silence their opposition. Above all else, they lie.
Monsanto and their bullying buddies defeated California’s Proposition 37 in November 2012, a proposition that would have labeled GMOs. They did it by immersing the airwaves and media in slimy and illegal lies backed by millions of dollars. They repeated the same lies in 2013 to defeat Washington state’s labeling initiative, I-522.
As a result, GMOs remain unlabeled in California, Washington and the United States. However, things are changing. According to the Center for Food Safety, “In 2013, nearly half of all U.S. states have introduced bills requiring labeling or prohibiting genetically engineered foods.” And Connecticut and Maine have passed labeling laws that will become active when enough other states pass similar legislation. We have a right to know who’s profiting from our food choices. Beyond that, we have a moral obligation to boycott lying corporate tyrants.
When enough people realize that Monsanto and gang lie, we will inoculate ourselves against the power of their lies and the poison in their products.
We are Running The Country to promote the world’s access to a safe, healthy, and public food supply!
Epidemiologists and millions of people around the world know that the world’s longest living people live their long and peaceful lives on plant-based diets. And a plant-based diet is not only best for human health, it’s best for animals, it’s best for the environment, and it’s best for the world’s food security. In spite of these well-known facts, corporate interests and our corporate-influenced regulatory system pump out billion dollar lies promoting food and food like substances that are now responsible for virtually every major cause of U.S. disease, sickness, and premature death.
We are Running The Country to promote healthy plant-based diets!
It’s no secret that Americans don’t get enough exercise. And it’s no secret that our butt-sitting, TV-watching, and lazy lifestyle is resulting in a host of physical, mental, and emotional problems. We are designed to move, to walk, flex, lift, push, pull, sweat, and run. When we do so, we experience multiple benefits.
We are Running The Country to promote active lifestyles!
We all want to enjoy safe and healthy foods, healthy diets, and active lifestyles. With that in mind, our mission is your mission.
We are honored to represent you, run with you, and speak for you as we Run The Country.
We commit to you and the people of the world to fulfill our mission.
We invite you to run with us as we Run The Country!
