TIDBIT: RAPPAPORT ON THE “DEFEAT” OF PROPOSITION 37
November 10, 2012 / /
John Rappaport has posted some reflections on what really needs to be done about Proposition 37, and I completely agree with him... it's time to spread this to other states, and if at first defeated, try try again, and it's time to demand paper ballots, and to scrutinize all aspects on this issue:

Yeah right !!!
Anyone seem that farmer’s BULLdozer or
is the farmer dozing, too…?
The effort that they had to go to spending $45M and fixing the counties is the writing on the wall. They will not be able to stop this, only slow it down. I’d like to see a lawsuit now to force the disclosure of fraud so that, 1) it goes on the ballot again, and 2) people in these companies and their Politimafia friends start going to jail. And 3rd, once the cat is out of the bag, they will be less likely to be able to do it in other states. Is there a mechanism for recounts on ballot initiatives?
Portland’s Mayor Snake Adams pushed for transparency recently and when the Fluoride issue was being lobbied effectively broke his OWN RULES and met with lobbyists without reporting those contacts. The fact is that we need to start convening citizen grad juries again, and take the grand jury process out of the hands of the state.
QuietRiot, thanks for your assessment and information.
With regard to your last statement, “we need to start convening citizen grand juries again, and take the grand jury process out of the hands of the state.” I agree with that also, but be warned we will need to first, and foremost, muster up some dragon slayers.
This was a big one. The other selections between puppets was miniscule compared to what the passing of Proposition 37 would have had. The the game was set to win “fairly”. If it couldn’t go according to plan A, then there wasn’t any worry, because the system was gamed from the get-go. Plan B is embedded in the “electronic/computer voting system”. No doubt, the money spent on advertising(another way to “game the sustem) would give credibility to the “win”(which, in reality didn’t actually win the votes casts by citizens; but did win, in terms of “who’ counted the votes[a computer program/ a “what” won the vote, instead of a who]).
Robert, you are absoltey right, “This was a big one.” A very BIG one,.
I agree. Also legitimate ID should be required before being allowed to vote in order to show the poll workers that you really are who you claim to be.
No objection there either Nidster… the fraud in the system makes it next to impossible to gauge what’s really going on.
