Added more into my last post and will add a part at the bottom of this one now before going.
But as far as voting goes, there's cryptographic verification processes that would eliminate voter fraud. It's not practical on a large scale, such as
the US presidential election, but definitely for a state bill. It allows each voter to check where their vote has gone to, that votes cast do not
exceed final results, and each vote was cast by a uniquely registered voter who'd have a receipt of it. The difficult task would be convincing the
people that their voting machines are not trustworthy. That would be an approach worth taking - market on the fraud of voting to have new measures set
in place. That would rectify the GMO problem, in the case of a re-vote, and any future injustices. That's curing the source instead of treating the
symptoms (the exact opposite philosophy of big pharma).
The other option is to continue relying on individual support to place the GMO stickers on products...but to mainly have a donation pool and find
sponsors in order to install a reward system or, preferably, hire people to do it within stores they're designated. That way there's people who are
entirely focused on it (it's their job), relentless, and more motivated with all the time in the world to do it. It's also convenient and convenience
is what Americans prize. I'd rather donate with a few clicks of my mouse than go to an office store, buy some label sheets, print a bunch of stickers,
research what products have GMO and what don't, go to the grocery store (which is at random times and not often) just to only be able to label maybe
an aisle (since I have other obligations, it's not my job) and it have no significant effect because I can't be consistent or frequent with it and
can't really label much.
People that are ignorant of GMO, or don't care, would not care about a sticker someone put on a product. If they go search "GMO", odds are they're
going to check out the Wiki page or agro giant propaganda that say it's "good" for them. They need more guidance. The only people this would
immediately effect are those already aware of GMO, already research it, and already want to avoid it.
In order to reach the rest of the target audience with the sticker idea, consistency and frequency must be extremely high.
