    Re: Let's play a game

    Since I only really got into politics last year, I have written to my Senators only once. Both are moderate Democrats, so I recently wrote to both of them telling them to vote against the health care bill, which of course they both ended up voting for along with all the other Senate Democrats. I'll probably only write again if something really big comes up.

    I haven't written a word to my representative, nor will I. He's a douche who wouldn't give a crap about what I think.

    Well depending on where you live, your Representative might represent less people than your Senator does...might be easier to get through to them.

    Why?
    Is this a reflection on you or them?
    Maybe a sample of a letter is necessary.

    Unless the state is so small that it has only one Congressional district, all representatives represent less people than Senators. My representative wouldn't give a crap what I think though, since he's so corrupt and since his re-election is almost guaranteed as long as he runs. Also, my Senators are more moderate and prone to break with their party, whereas my representative can pretty much be counted on to always take the most liberal position.

    Then get active. You can do it, CHANGE YOUR STATE! Or ****, join someone's campaign or run for yourself. Just don't use Gengar as your political symbol.
