These are individuals, neither campaign has any control over what they do. And I know for a fact that, more than once, a pro-fluoride groupie "stole" yes signs from his own campaign in order to create a story and distract people from the real issues (because people are figuring it out). Leave the signs alone folks, that is super childish (plus I think the "yes" signs are comical and actually hurt their cause). Remember, fluoridation allows government to do something even your doctor can't do: force you to take a medication without consent, without evaluation of individual need, weight, lifestyle or existing medical conditions. I voted no on ethical grounds. And if you're balking at the word 'medication' please know that this use of fluoride meets exactly the definition: a substance where the target is the human body for a purported health effect." How can we say yes to government putting medicine for all in the water? It should be a choice, not a mandate. And let's not forget that 97% of this stuff never hits its target, people's bodies, and goes straight down the drain.
This Mercury "article" acknowledges that pro-fluoride tried/is trying to rig the vote, but then endorses it anyway? Why would they need to rig the vote if their information is true and valid? And why is there an ad for "premium whole house fluoride water filter" at the bottom of this page...oh yes because nobody wants to drink this stuff. Fluoridation and covering the reservoirs, letting Nestle build a bottling plants (which they'll succeed in doing if this passes because demand for bottled water will spike), is all leading to the eventual privatization of our water. Go ahead and add coal trains too to add to our toxic load. I sure wish somebody at the Mercury could crawl out of the old paradigm and into the new - drinking fluoridating water really doesn't do much for oral health, it all goes straight down the drain and into the environment with no effect on anybody - just a legal way around pollution laws. It will be a such a sad mistake if it happens.
