The 2nd Amendment is our most important one because it enforces all the rest. We cannot trust our judicial branch to protect our rights because they are political animals and will rule for the outcome they desire regardless of the law.
According to Wisconsin Judge Patrick J. Fiedler, you do not have a fundamental right to consume the food you grow or own or raise. The Farm To Consumer Legal Defense Fund, the pioneers in defending food sovereignty and freedom, recently argued before Judge Fiedler that you and I have a constitutional right to consume the foods of our choice. Judge Fiedler saw no merit to the argument and ruled against the FTCLDF. When they asked him to clarify his statement, these were his words:
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to own and use a dairy cow or a dairy herd;”
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to consume the milk from their own cow;”
“no, Plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to produce and consume the foods of their choice…”
Talk about hammering a point home.

I like raw milk and drink it. I let the cream rise to the top, skim it and drink the leftover milk with Ovaltine in it. (The cream, of course, is turned into butter and buttermilk – I’m not wasteful.) My family absolutely hates it. They only drink Braums milk. They get what they want; I get what I want. I wouldn’t envy the sucker that tried to come here and tell me that I couldn’t have my milk.
There are times I’m no longer certain that we have the fortitude to enforce our rights. Would my friends and neighbors rebel against authority and protect my cows regardless of the cost? There is no widespread condemnation of this judge’s ruling. He has not been threatened with impeachment due to his heretical ruling. They appear to be willing to lie down like whipped dogs and let the state tell them what they can do and what they can’t do with their lips, tongues, stomachs and cows.
Will we allow them to continually whittle away our rights until we see them as state granted rights rather than God given rights? I don’t know, but I hope there is enough backbone left in us to live free or die. There is no judicial system to protect us.
