30. While collecting signaures for the Snyder recall here in Michigan
I was called a socialist and a communist. I was told to get a job. I was given the finger many times from passing cars. These incidents were minor compared to the huge number of grateful people who honked, waved, thumbs up, signed and thanked us for being out collecting signatures.

There are bound to be those who oppose what you are doing. The old way of changing govt was by force. The new way is by democratic means. Those who are corrupting and impeding this system should remember this.

I would never advocate violence as it is wrong and counter productive. Yet look at the ends to which unions historically had to go to even be able to represent workers. I thought these issues were settled and the integrity and legitimacy of the system was paramount. Short-sighted of the republicans to work against the integrity of the system.
