28. I think we've been having a citizen revolt., only people have been calling it
"pushback." We've been innundating them with calls and emails (me, once a week).

A national strike is very difficult in this country. We aren't Paris.

The last time America was able to muster one was in the early Fifties. The country is too big and suburban/rural, we've become too apathetic and we don't have the infrastructure because our unions don't do it. Candidly, the Republicans, by calling on their own organization, the NRA and the churches, could succeed a lot better than Democrats, IMO.
