California Ballot Measure will Require Politicians to Wear Their Corporate Owners' Logos
And it's not a hoax or just a joke. San Diego entrepreneur John Cox is running the California Isn't For Sale campaign. Signature-gathering will begin this January. John Cox said:
“This is a very serious initiative. This is not a joke. If you came down from Mars and you looked at our electoral system, you’d say to yourself, ‘How dumb is this?’ You’ve got a system under which people who want something from government fund the campaigns of the people who make the decisions. How stupid is that system?”
Undoubtedly this won't be legally binding when (not if) voters approve it. But it'll bring a lot of publicity and sunlight to an issue that the Powers That Be would rather keep in the dark. And if there are millions of dollars' worth of TV ads warning about the scary consequences of this initiative (funded by anonymous donors of course), the irony will be unbearable.
