Opinion: I tend to go in the opposite direction of fearmongering

Where are all the ads?

Some of the numerous ads on practically every TV channel telling us to vote no on Prop 1 claim large amounts of dark outside money is leading the charge on the yes side. I don’t recall seeing one TV ad slot telling us to vote yes on Prop 1. Where is all this outside money and influence? All I’ve seen so far are a few Alaskan residents putting out good facts and arguments for voting yes on Prop. 1. When overwhelming amounts of money are thrown at an issue by big business concerns coupled with fearmongering, I for one tend to go in the opposite direction.
