    Got this from another list. Please pass it on to any and all that apply.
    Do a search on the site once you are confirmed after joining for the raw milk vote. There are a few of them one in health and one in ag.
    Also there is the NAIS stop vote too.

    Hi, all - I hope it's okay to post this here. It was sent to me and I
    feel it is very important. Please support sales of raw milk from the
    farmhouse.

    There's a vote going on at Obama's website change.org; the top 10
    > ideas will be accepted in the new administration. Charles Rutledge
    > created one for legalizing raw milk. You have to get a signon to
    > vote, but that took me about a minute. Then vote for his idea.
    > There's only 17 votes right now - let's kick it up! And pass it on!
    >

    >

    So vote and pass it on!

    Thanks. Lorrie in OK

    But DON'T let them get your e-mail address. I've had at least 80 messages since I voted a couple days ago! Since milk regs are determined state-by-state, the effective thing would be to get this kind of harrassment directed at your legislature.

    The vote is now over 1200 and in the top five. I have not gotten 1 email since casting mine. All I did was vote not place any comments.

    I didn't get any emails either, except for my registration to the email.

    I went to vote and First round voting has closed, BUT more voting will be needed on Jan 5-15

    here is a quote from the site:


    First round voting for the Ideas for Change in America Competition closed at midnight on December 31, 2008.

    This idea finished in 1st Place in the Agricultural Policy category and has therefore qualified for the final round. Final round voting will run from January 5th - 15th, and voting totals will be reset at zero for all qualifying ideas to ensure an equal playing field.

    Top 3 Ideas in Agricultural Policy
    2428Legalize Milk
    1432Vegan school lunch options
    1393Stop NAIS!

    "Since milk regs are determined state-by-state, the effective thing would be to get this kind of harrassment directed at your legislature."

    Thank yo Tom! THAT is where you will see practicable change. To be honest? I dont WANT the federal gov't meddling with this, I suspect we would end up with a lot WORSE than state by state legalization. At least I can sell here in TX if I so desire and there is hope for improvement. And those states where it is illegal can be easier changed to legal status by working within the state. But once the federal gov't gets involved? Sheesh they cant hardly get anything right!
