Bear, remember, you're not paranoid if they really are out to get you.
But I get what you're saying. Every time the govt passes another law "to keep us safe," I know we've been screwed. I even think a few of the tragedies we've suffered on US soil may have been engineered by power mongers, or if not, definitely used by them to curb individual freedoms.
There's a concept of operating in sunshine/sunlight - iow, operating so that all can see what you're doing. When the highest executive officer in the land allows (signs into law) that GMO products not only don't have to be labelled, but are forbidden to be labelled, that's hiding information from the citizenry. And if that isn't enough, our taxes subsidize the very industries that are producing GMO foods.
Me? I'm paranoid and pissed. And pretty much have been so since Watergate.
