It comes down to the fact that labeling wouldn't really serve much of a purpose other than to quell the paranoia of people that don't understand what they're paranoid about. GM Foods are so widely used, and have been for many generations, we would be relabeling the majority of our food. There's no safety risk, and your personal piece of mind isn't worth the trouble it would take. What you're asking for would raise the price of food and cause all sorts of problems for producers.
And you still have a choice. You always have. Take those seeds from Granny's tomatoes that you're convinced are non GM, and grow your own. Control the genetics of your own food. That will guarantee you know what you're eating. Otherwise just accept that you're eating it and have been forever.
