Like most government propaganda, a lot of what Wikipedia calls “weasel words” and other techniques of stretching the truth and intimating things without actually lying 100% of the time, which would be too obvious.
Actually, learning how these things are done — especially easy to do on a topic you know intimately — is a very good way to learn how marketers and politicians and corporations fool most of the people most of the time. In college, I studied communications and statistics…a very deadly combination for this kind of stuff. I coulda been a very effective evil person, but I swore only to use my powers for good…and so I’m planning to dedicate a great portion of my life to passing Prop 19, beginning September 1.
Look out world!
