It Seems Sincere—But You Can’t Be Sure

Here is a sign I saw yesterday that opposes Cincinnati Public School taxes.

I don’t know if the sign is against all CPS taxes or just against an upcoming levy.

It looks like a homemade or hand made sign.

It did occur to me though that a superpac opposes these taxes and commissioned 5000 of these signs to give the impression of a grassroots revolt.

My theory is dented by the fact that this is the only such sign I’ve seen so far. Though maybe it is just that this is the first of the 5000 signs.

  1. “It did occur to me though that a superpac opposes these taxes and commissioned 5000 of these signs to give the impression of a grassroots revolt.”

    That’s a delusion.

  2. Are not phony grassroots efforts a staple of lobbying efforts of all kinds?
