Family business could hurt DeVos in governor's race
The new numbers, exclusive in West Michigan to 24 Hour News 8, show Governor Jennifer Granholm in the lead again. The poll taken last month has the governor with a lead of three percent over Dick Devos, but it also asked potential voters about Alticor, the Ada-based business started by Dick Devos' father.

The poll asked voters what they think of Alticor. 41 percent of those polled had a negative response. 17 percent had a favorable response. 21 percent of voters listed Alticor as a reason not to vote for Devos. 62 percent say Alticor will not influence their decision.

1. It's a "racket", not a business, imho.
:shrug: I'd rather vote for Jimmy Hoffa (Jr. *or* Sr.) than DeVos.

2. The public needs to be reminded that the name of the company was changed
A good number of people don't realize that Alticor used to be called Amway. Everyone knows Amway is a scam. If God was truly the God DeVos claims to worship, DeVos will go to hell for blasphemy, over the Scamway recruiting techniques:

"God wants you be be rich. God wants you to get rich selling Amway products". Give us the check to start up your distributorship!

What's with his ads claiming Granholm is running negative ads against him? I have not seen a single Granholm ad in which a negative attack was launched against him, unless his name has changed to George W. Bush. And, I haven't seen very many Granholm ads.

3. Scamway = Daddy's boy
This guy is only in this race to eliminate the single business tax. He has no other worthwhile ideas, plans and has never worked a day in his life as a public servant.

We can work to straighten out the single business tax without hiring a Daddy's boy. (and his bitchy wife)

4. could? we'll make it hurt
Tell all your friends, FREQUENTLY

According to Amway, their annual sales amounts to about $7 billion and there are 3 million distributors. Thus, the average distributor's sales amounts to about $2,333/yr. If 30% of that is profit, the average distributor makes $700/yr.

and

In the United States, the Federal Trade Commission requires Amway to label its products with the message that 54% of Amway recruits make nothing and the rest earn on average $65 a month. No such labels are required in other countries, but the facts are clear. Most people who get involved in Amway will not make money.


Before Voss can offer a good deal to Michigan, he ought offer a good deal to his own customers
