Our NAIS protest happened today. I got up at 0400. I milked and fed the other animals. We then booked to Jefferson City in high gear. It was about 200 miles. The rotunda of the State Capitol was reserved. We basically had it filled and most folks were from southron Missouri. I hope we can get the rest of the state. It was very cool. The protest lasted from 0900 - 1200. Several state reps/senators spoke as well as a few members of our Property Rights Congress. It felt powerful to hear politicians and friends get up and boom over the microphone that they will not chip their animals. I have no way of proving it but we were told that Missouri is the first state to have a formal protest at the state capitol. Missouri has both a house and senate resolution to the feds to keep NAIS on a voluntary basis. I hope we thwart this intrusive federal government. Were any other homesteadingtoday.com folks there?
