1. Labor Protests in Michigan

Michigan police have historically been used as the enforcement arm of politicians and their corporate masters to bully and even to kill labor union protestestors since the 1920's. Henry Ford used his own private security force which operated in conjunction with local police to supress union protests and to intimidate workers. This is why the right to work legislation is so repugnant to workers everywhere but especially so in Michigan.

3. I believe Snyder as much as I believe Rick Scott.

And that is not saying much at all. "Freedom to choose" is the same as "school choice". Just another name for screwing the worker.
