Rep. Ron Paul on CAFTA

The only consistently pro-freedom and pro-Constitution voice in Congress, Rep. Ron Paul gives us another reason to oppose CAFTA (which isn't about "free trade" at all):

The largely government-run health care establishment, including the nominally private pharmaceutical companies, want government to control the dietary supplement industry – so that only they can manufacture and distribute supplements. If that happens, as it already is happening in Europe, the supplements you now take will be available only by prescription and at a much higher cost – if they are available at all. This alone is sufficient reason for Congress to oppose the unconstitutional, sovereignty-destroying CAFTA bill.
