Ask President Obama to Endorse Prop 37!
In 2007, when Barack Obama was running for president the first time, he promised to label genetically engineered food. Now, if you write the Obama for America campaign about GMO labels, you get this response:
"Genetically modified crops hold out the promise of benefits like increased production and reduced reliance on pesticides. At the same time, some Americans want more information to help them choose their food. President Obama understands these concerns and is considering additional steps in this area."
What? How can he flip his position like that? What makes him believe Monsanto's lies?
Why isn't he listening to the majority of voters who want GMOs labeled? In California, 76.8 percent of voters say they plan to vote "yes" on Proposition 37. That's more than the 56.8 percent of voters who say they're voting for the President!

Endorsing Prop 37 could only help President Obama get re-elected. Nationwide, nine out of ten Americans believe we deserve the right to know what's in our food! One of them is his wife, First Lady Michelle Obama.
Today, on 10/11/12, the Organic Consumers Association is delivering more than 203,000 signatures to the White House and Obama's California campaign headquarters in San Francisco on a petition asking the First Lady to talk to her husband about labeling GMOs.
Our petition delivery follows what Vani Hari, a.k.a. Food Babe, did at the Democratic National Convention.
Politically, politicians of both parties favor the interests of Monsanto, but personally, they choose organic. This hypocrisy must end!
