Far from being paid, I have observed hundreds of people even in my small middle class town writing to one another on various boards and gathering together to work out how to resist. These are people of all sorts: Young, old, middle aged, wealthy, poor, educated, homeless, in great health, in wheel chairs,, women, men, mostly heterosexuals, a few homosexuals, etc. In short, all types of people motivated by only one thing: Concern or fear of the wild and crazy (euphemisms for evil and insane) President and those who support him. No one is paying anyone. It is all spontaneous and grass roots. It is all heart felt and driven by a desire to have a real democracy.
