    Re: When is the last time you wrote to your Senator or Representative...

    2 days ago I contacted Several Republican Senators telling them not to vote for Leahy's bill For Reading Emails. I also told them to squash Lieberman's ideas as well. That if we find out they voted for it. Then they will have to deal with a Concentrated Effort to remove them from Office and or vote them out.

    Asked for support for Rand Paul and Coburn in squashing Leahy's Bill.

    The Difference being.....It will be Republicans coming after them. Not Democrats! Moreover.....we know how to make it hurt when it comes to our alleged own.

    I contacted both Senators Sessions and Shelby in my state urging them to vote against NDAA. I was ignored by Shelby, but had contact with Sessions. Sessions gave me the run around and told me that it was in our best interest or something along those lines. I responded quickly and never heard back. I contacted them about SOPA. PIPA, and CISPA....all for not though because they both voted in favor of all three.

    I will be contacting them again about this e-mail legislation. I find it essential to contact your Senators/Representatives if you want to express outrage or try and sway their vote.

    About a year and a half ago, with nothing in response but a mass-produced photocopy that had nothing to do with the issue I brought up.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Good job.....and stay on them. I was all over Sessions azz for letting Obama put Kagen on the SCOTUS. Tell the good Ole Boyz if they don't get with the Program we will run their azz out of Politics all together. Their days are numbered.....time for pasture!

    I agree, to an extent....
    Its important that our representatives know how we feel about things.
    I think that they should send out a well designed form letter in order to know "what is going on".
    The key here is "well designed".

    excellent approach. threaten the elected representatives if they do not vote your way

    As far as I am concerned, anyone can read all of my eMails all day and all night. I do have at least a double digit IQ, and if I do wish to hide something, I'll use our US mail..
    Those who are doing things "under the table" should not be so lazy.
    I do not think that eMails should be private, so remember, every coin has two sides..

    Just because a particular vote doesn't go your way doesn't mean it was all for naught.

    I'm on an e-mail list for one of my Senator's newsletters. It's decent, but of course it's all positive in his favor.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Last week, I wrote heated emails to both my MP and Harper. I do so quite often as well.
