Right to Know about GMOs Initiative

The Party of Commons will soon be sponsoring an initiative to the People that would require one of the state departments or agencies, yet to be determined, to post on their website the exact brand name or generic foods that have some genetically modified organisms (GMO) within them and that are sold in the State of Washinton.  This would be a simple list, that wouldn't necessarily have to be comprehensive, and would cost very little in state funds to operate.  Although, this is not as extensive as the proposed California initiative that would require labeling on the actual foods that have GMO, this is the best we can do given our shoestring budget, and we're hoping that some bigger organization in Washington will replicate the California initiative.  Anybody that can help us with funding this initiative, please, send any amount you can to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009.  We will file the paperwork as soon as possible in January and, if we get some funding help, print thousands of petition pages, which would probably be available in early February.  Please, spread the word about this effort.  Also, if you have a suggestion as to which state department or agency should be responsible for posting the GMO information, send that to us by making a comment or through e-mail: partyofcommons@yahoo.com.  Thanks.

The Lieutenant Governor has only one official duty and that is to preside over the State Senate, so Mark will study the Robert's Rules of Order. If elected, in unofficial duties, Mark would concentrate on emergency management in a state that is susceptible to earthquakes, and one having the Hanford nuclear waste debacle on its hands, and one nuclear power plant. We must learn from the Japan crisis earlier this year, and begin to phase out nuclear energy altogether and transform to solar, wind, geothermal and other non-nuclear and non-fossil fuel energy systems. Where to put the nuclear waste that has already been made will be a major headache for society even as we begin to phase out nuclear energy, but one we'll have to deal with. If elected, I will also be trying to phase out genetically modified food in Washington state by mandating labeling. People, generally, won't buy GMO food if it is labeled, which is why the shady Monsanto Corporation fights proposals for labeling so vigorously. Please, send an e-mail to mark@partyofcommons.com to get a petition page (and anywhere from 2 - 10 signatures) that will get Mark on the ballot. Thanks.

If possible, please, consider contributing to campaign (see disclaimer below before donating) by sending check or money order to Mark Greene for Lieutenant Governor Comm., P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. Also, Mark is depending on supporters to spread the word about the campaign to get around the media bias regarding non-establishment campaigns. Thank you! Mark is probably the only politician in Washington that had the temerity to keep the 2004 election shenanigans in the news as late as 2011 and to call out names. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
