    Official U.S. definitions regarding invasive species were clearly provided in Executive Order 13112 signed by President William J. Clinton on February 3, 1999.

    Invasive species” means an alien species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.

    Alien species” means, with respect to a particular ecosystem, any species, including its seeds, eggs, spores, or other biological material capable of propagating that species, that is not native to that ecosystem.

    Species” means a group of organisms all of which have a high degree of physical and genetic similarity, generally interbreed only among themselves, and show persistent differences from members of allied groups of organisms.

    Ecosystem” means the complex of a community of organisms and its environment.

    Alien plant species, also known as genetically modified organisms, were engineered and introduced into natural environments specifically designed to spread rapidly. Because they are so uncontrollable and engineered to be aggressive, these aberrations of science gone mad rapidly overtake naturally occurring ecosystems and destroy the biodiversity needed to sustain not only the land, but the life on it.  Alien GMO species are an unwelcome interruption, displacing natural plants and crops and all animal species dependent upon them for survival.

    The following is a letter from Tennessee to the other 49 State Legislatures

    We send greetings from the Tennessee General Assembly.  On June 23, 2009, House Joint Resolution 108, the State Sovereignty Resolution, was signed by Governor Phil Bredesen.  The Resolution created a committee which has as its charge to:

    • Communicate the resolution to the legislatures of the several states,
    • Assure them that this State continues in the same esteem of their friendship,
    • Call for a joint working group between the states to enumerate the abuses of authority by the federal government, and
    • Seek repeal of the assumption of powers and the imposed mandates. More
