    What is "acting in good faith?"

    Certain farmers might not see anything wrong with having children working 12 hour days as long as he pays them for their work (and in fact, that often seems to be the case).

    There are many people who don't think there should be a minimum wage.

    Bribing government officials is "lobbying."

    I completely agree with Doc. There are always going to be outliers who won't be be convinced their extreme ideas are wrong. I'd rather organize with like-minded folks and then reach out to sympathetic citizens who can be persuaded with reason and data.

    And that's about 60% to probably 75% of citizenry, depending on the issue.

    Don't forget, when George W Bush left office, he had a 23% approval rating; and 28% said they approved how he handled Iraq (this was after 2007 was the bloodiest year in the war).

    I figure about at least 25-30% of people in any instance will never come around.
