A sure sign of big business corrupting politics are those people who stand outside of stores and try to get you to sign petitions. Most of them are PAID!
My husband asked one yesterday if he was paid, and he said yes, and then tried to defend himself by saying that "everyone does it." That is not an excuse. If everyone jumped off a cliff, would you also?
If someone doesn't feel strongly enough about a petition to stand outside and get signatures from the public, then that petition doesn't deserve to be on the ballot!
