Industrial Hemp Production
The Revolution America Needs to Prosper
By Devvy Kidd
It seems all we hear is more begging for Congress to create jobs. There is no authority for Congress to create jobs other than those critically essential to support the military, the courts, congressional overhead and in areas specifically enumerated under Art. 1, Sec. 8 in a supporting role. As we can all see over the decades, pork spending creates nothing but more debt. Stealing from all of us, not to create jobs, but give the illusion the voter sanctioned criminal syndicate out in Washington, DC, is "doing something."
The Outlaw Congress, one after another for decades, have done nothing but kill MILLIONS of jobs through destructive, unconstitutional trade treaties and agencies handing down more and more draconian regulations thereby choking private industry to death. That means your representatives and mine are part of the problem.
The solutions to many of our economic problems have been ignored for years by these crooks in Congress, and yes, I even mean the "conservatives" like Speaker John Boehner, Eric Cantor and others. With a split body, the Republicans can only do so much as far as legislation, but since long time incumbents have ignored the real solutions for decades, it has to be the states of the Union fighting back.
Want to create jobs, lower our dependence on foreign oil and clean up the environment? How about hemp? I'm not talking about growing hemp to smoke (marijuana). I am against legalizing "pot"; a position that gets me in trouble with libertarians who believe all drugs should be legal. The exception is it should be available for cancer patients who say it relieves the unbearable pain; they should not be denied relief.
Do you know that:
14 - Henry Ford's first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the car itself was constructed from hemp! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel. (Popular Mechanics, 1941.)
Research by Doug Yurchey. You can read all of Yurkey's column on hemp where you'll see, once again, the prostitutes in Congress were bought out by big money to strangle the use of a naturally grown plant within the states of the Union.
Congressman Ron Paul has introduced a bill over and over and over to stop this nonsense.
In 1942, the War Department released the film “Hemp for Victory” which was produced by the United States Department of Agriculture. Hemp for Victory was an educational film promoting hemp production in the United States. "This film contains high-quality information about the Cannabis Sativa plant and large-scale hemp production for industrial use."
