California’s Prop 37 Scandal: Resolution and Healing Amid the Corruption – Washington State Next?

November 12, 2012 | By | 3 Replies More

After elections we learned of the scandal claiming that the results of Prop 37 were announced prematurely and perhaps incorrectly.

Then we discovered the official record from the California Secretary of State for all the uncounted votes, amounting to 3,334,495. Many people have begun to hope that we could still win this thing, including myself. So tonight I crunched the numbers, hoping to discover that our labeling law could be saved from demise.

I totalled all the votes remaining to be counted for the blue districts/precincts (those we won) at this link.

This total is approximately 1,437,080 votes. This is not even half of the total reported remaining votes (3,334,495) to be counted. So, about 1.9 million of the uncounted votes are from precincts/districts we DID NOT win (the tan-orange areas).

Since we have no real landslide victories in any of the precincts we won, that ALSO have large numbers of uncounted votes (like Humboldt County), and of the remaining 1.9 million or so in the precincts we did NOT win, many of those DID beat us by landslide numbers (great disparity ratio of No to Yes), this means that when the all the votes are counted, we will likely lose by even more.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news, unless my reasoning or math is wrong (please tell me it is!), but this reasoning tells the likely outcome, barring an anomaly that rather grossly disobeys the averages already recorded.

California’s central valley, home to GMO corn and GMO cotton fields, cattle living in squalid conditions, and its filthy, polluted air through which the sun barely shines did us in. This chemical wasteland fittingly won the Prop 37 race in a vote to ensure, for now, the continued spread of this environmental abomination.

So, we should assume that labeling of GMOs in California is not happening for now, even as we demand due diligence to count and record each last vote.

While the State of California counts and records the rest of the votes, we should focus our efforts on what is next. What is immediately next is for each and every one of us (that means you) to bolster efforts not to buy GMO foods while we support other states like Washington to get their GMO labeling ballot initiatives rolling.

I think it’s better to be realistic, attuned to what is likely (while demanding due diligence nonetheless for all votes to be counted), rather than have and foster false hope, which can put many of us who just experienced huge disappointment through unnecessary sadness, upset, and misdirected energy again. And if we do win, by some miracle, hallelujah! So best to re-focus on the next better possibility with renewed energy and hope.

We are growing in numbers now, and after the heartbreaking loss, we are growing stronger than ever before, just as a broken bone becomes stronger than before as it heals. So many more of us are finally outraged and finally beginning to feel the true injustice of GMOs through education and personal experience. This outrage is what fuels change and justice. We should embrace this upset and channel it into right action.

We will win, and when we do, we will drive the opposition as equally far away from our well-being, from our blood streams, from our children’s future as they have encroached and violated us for way too long. Join the resistance, embody the solution by choosing organic, always! Do it for revenge, for justice, for what’s right.

Please join these non-GMO groups for the latest updates, lively discussions, and to become part of the solution to eradicate GMOs in America and around the world.

    Are the amounts listed for the contributors that helped defeat this proposition in dollars, i.e. Monsanto contributed more than 8 million dollars?

  2. david says:

    so, your article assumes that we still have elections and that each vote counts and that elections are not manipulated i the way the corporate assassins want them to be manipulated. why is the collective memory so short as to forget that all of the elections since electronics have been shoved into the arena have been defrauded.

  3. Boldhawk says:

    Californians or most US people are not stupid when it comes to a simple question and direct answer.

    The simple question: Do you want to know what’s in your food? elicits only one answer from rational people: YES.

    So I can’t believe that question produced a predominance or majority of NO answers.

    I read the ballot summary information, and the way stuff is worded it might as well have been written in Greek, as it adds information that introduces decisions about forbidding marking/marketing as “natural” any product containing GM components.

    The fiscal impact statements, earlier and final versions are slanted, and may even be totally false. Most of the policing is rarely done by the actual agency in charge; a claim is originated by people, and pursued by the agency, and the cost inures the loser.. At any rate, there are already many methods of inspection and enforcement for food labeling… no new agency would be required … it’s just another task. People may have voted on the basis of the fiscal impact claimed, but not well documented.

    So if the count really was correct, the way the proposition was summarized in the ballot information will account for the loss of the proposition.

    You ask what to do next… Introduce a simpler version, and leave it to the appropriate government department to work out the details of the intention of the population.
