Excellent questions. You've asked two and I can't answer either one. (I feel so inadequate
How do I explain statistical anomalies? No idea. I don't know what they were, the number of votes involved, nothing. I was responding to the OP's
claim of fraud based on the change in the online report, the screens that showed that of the 12 million votes cast, the "no" voters were ahead by a
few hundred thousand.
How do I explain anyone voting "no?" Again, I don't know. I can't figure out the voters in this country. Heck, they re-elected Obama, what
could they have been thinking?
I don't even know what arguments were used by the opponents. I thought I heard about a slight increase in cost
because of labelling?
My own argument, had anybody asked, would have been that labelling something GMO would lead to the use of the same type of scare tactics used to
demonize Alar and apples. The Alar fuss was a fraud from the beginning, but environmentalists said informing the public justified the lying.
