    Kudos to the Danes for developing some common sense. Meanwhile, France is contemplating raising the tax on palm oil by 300%: French lawmakers debate

    The most discouraging thing about the article is when it says that palm oil "is known to be high in saturated fats and can potentially cause heart disease," as if that is a fact.

      The biggest problem with Palm oil is that it isn't harvested sustainably. They are cutting down the habitat that Orangutans live in.

Local politicians, ballot measures, etc...it's hard to truly influence things on a federal level, but you can have a huge impact on the local level...and that CAN spread out and affect other areas over time.

        Also, there are always third parties. Johnson, the libertarian candidate, got 1% of the vote. Doesn't sound like much, but he highest amount a third party candidate has gotten in recent history. I may just be optimistic, but I'd like to think we're starting to see some cracks in the two party monopoly.
        Good luck on the local level but agenda 21 will be enforced and the Fed gov will over ride local laws when it comes down to it.

        What use is having 1% of the vote if you can't enact or veto laws? Though you are right about the death of the two party system. The Republicans can no longer win an election since immigration has tipped the demographics permanently in favour of the Democrats.

        Honestly, I hope you Americans can regain some power at the local level but from the outside it looks hopeless

          Well, what options are there? Give up (I'm to stubborn for that); load up (have no interest in an armed rebellion); or live in a way that promotes liberty in my own life and try to live an example that will desirable to others and hope that it spreads and makes a difference...I'd rather be overly optimistic.
