Unbelievable Defeat of California Anti-GMO Initiative

It's quite unbelievable to realize that California defeated the GMO mandatory labeling initiative, which lost by several percentage points.  The corporate behemoth, Agribusiness and the Colossus of the Bizarre, Monsanto, spent many millions of dollars in deceitful advertising, filled with distortions and untruths, to keep the public at large uninformed about the dangers of GMO food, which is genetically engineered (this is not mainstream cross pollination agriculture that has been practiced for centuries by farmers). 

Now, Washington will try its hand at an anti-GMO initiative.  We must succeed where California failed, although the sponsor of this initiative (I-522), Chris McManus, is getting off to a bad start since he can't even manage to return the phone call of a supporter -- me.  I'll try again, however.  The initiative is not very likely to succeed if the ringleaders can't even return phone calls or answer e-mails from like-minded folks.  People who are interested in supporting and contacting McManus can get his contact information from the Washington Secretary of State's Website under Elections & Voting, Initiatives & Referenda, Initiatives Filed in 2012 and Initiatives to the Legislature.

If possible, please, consider contributing to the Party of Commons by sending a check or money order ($10 recommended) to Mark Greene's Party of Commons or $12 to the Secretary of State Campaign (to Mark Greene for Secretary of State); for either address, write to P.O. Box 612, Bellevue, WA 98009. 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 2012 and to call out names. Help us solve the mystery of "The Other Curious Election of 2004" (WA 9th Congressional District U.S. Rep. primary) by contacting real journalists and asking them to look into it. Elections are too important for shams to be ignored and for accountability to be neglected.
