Now think about this before you answer. Remember that while the signature gathering phase of his initiative campaigns are funded...the campaign for passage is not. It is the force of one man's personality...the drive, the tenacity...the ability to NOT GIVE IN...that, coupled with the populist content of the measures, pushes his initiatives forward.
(This little treatise is because someone didn't like the use of the word "evil".)
Tim is hard to avoid. His actions demand attention. Yesterday afternoon he showed up for the governor's signing of the repeal of the initiative passed by the people... the "Taxpayers Protection Act" or the provisions of I-960. In front of God and the press (some think there is little difference), Eyman, alone, walked up and stood by the governor as she read the card in front of her and then signed the bill. Eyman stuck right by her side as she began to answers questions from the press corps (sounds like K-OR). There he stood!!!! I can't believe he did this! Totally, totally, incorrect.
Apparently, he was waiting for his pen and a picture. The governor eventually offered him a pen and he reached in the box to get a couple more. He had a few friends who had spent $700,000 dollars and 300 days in passing I-960 and they, as well, were hoping to have a little memento as I-960 was signed away. Seems like the funeral was well covered with all that press and Eyman peering over the governor's shoulder.
This man is totally politically incorrect. He is outrageous! He is rude with a smile. Did he even HAVE a mother???
Yet he is successful. He calls things like they are. Or, if you prefer, as he sees things.
Martin Luther King...Mahatma Gandhi...political incorrectness is in the eye of the beholder. Our world is a better place because of people who do not mind walking the road. Using the word "evil" is a necessity if you are going to make change. If you don't believe there is evil...and say it...you will never have what it takes to make change in the face of overwhelming odds and without funding.
