1. Hawaii is not alone with the pressure being applied in this election:

They're spending $1.6 million in Oregon this year to defeat labeling. It's unknown how that will turn out, but rural turnout is said to be very high.

They're also spending $4.7 million in Colorado and the outcome is uncertain.

They've spent $27.5 million this year alone to influence voters.

They spent $70 million in WA and CA to defeat a popular initiative with 3 weeks of intense media buying.

Numbers from link:

A lot of money. How much money do they expect to make in return it leaves one to wonder...

And this isn't even the Koch money being used. How about that...

3. I'm cheering for science.

GMOs have done a lot more good than bad for the environment, according the vast majority of scientific studies.

4. Your studies are funded by either the manufacturer

of the poison or our government which has been funded by the manufacturer ... and your environment must look like this ...

5. That is not true.

Every major health organization in the world has tested GMOs and deemed them safe.

12. No, I am talking about the whole world, and even WHO.

The bans weren't based on their scientific communities. The bans have been based on politics. The anti-science fear mongering has been working well on many people.

15. Your "around the world on gmos" statement must mean

a growing smaller as we speak, contingent of paid off politicians holding back the true science revealing the facts about GMOs.....

6. There's no reason to lie and use hyperbole

...unless you are lacking on actual facts.

There are literally hundreds of studies that have been done by universities and foreign governments.

You'd have to think that just about everybody who could possibly do a study is bought off to believe what you just said.

GMOs have been around for nearly 20 years now. Can you cite an example of a location they have done the kind of damage you alluded to in your image?

18. Roundup is not a GMO

You just posted a propaganda poster that doesn't cite a single source while arguing against a herbicide that has been tested for decades in the United States.

GMOs have been around for nearly 20 years now. Can you cite an example of a location they have done the kind of damage you alluded to in your original image or are just using scaremonger type tactics?

22. You see, it's not that hard.

Of course, the actual studies don't make the alarmist claims of the political bull shit but still, that's a HUGE step for an anti-GMO'er.
