Surprise, One of the Liar Obama's Campaign Promises in 2008 was Mandatory GMO Labeling

While on the campaign trail in 2007 and 2008, Barack Obama promised to label GMO foods if elected [see video below]. Of course, along with all the other lies he used to convince progressive US voters he was one of them, his administration, including the USFDA, has continued and extended GW Bush's support for the GMO industry. Now, as we approach the 2012 election, an estimated 80% of processed foods contain GMOs and Obama refuses to make any comment on the situation or California's 'Right to Know' proposition on the upcoming ballot.

Obama's presidency has been a litany of broken promises, the Pulitzer Prize winning 'PoliticalFact' published by the Tampa Bay Times features 'The Obameter' which lists and describes Obama's broken promises one by one, it runs 5 pages long. That Romney can continue to flip-flop from position to position, to lie about whatever he finds convenient, simply shows he's been paying attention to what got the present 'liar and theif' elected.

Yesterday's editorial in the N.Y. Times 'Buying the Vote on G.M.O.’s' about the financial backers of the 'No' campaign in Calif. was excellent and offered some hope that by exposing the propaganda filled ads of the self-interested financiers behind the campaign their lies can be exposed [hope springs eternal eh]. On the other hand the 'Yes' side has held it's fire until now, does have a war chest of $4-5million and has bought many TV ads to counter the opposition's dis-information that will run in Calif. during the next 13 days.

The most recent pre-vote polls are showing that the gap, once 2-1, is narrowing in California. That these tactics are working surprises no one, and is further argument against Citizens United and super PACs, and for big time campaign finance reform. Big money has defeated democracy in the US by and large, this Prop. 37 'Right to Know' what's in your food campaign in California could be the last test of whether democracy still exists there or if it's now totally run by liars and thieves.
