    just wondering how many folks on here take the time to write to there senate or house members. i do on issues that are important to me. i live in missouri. Senator Clair McKaskil always responds. Senator Kit Bond never has. i also make it a point to vote in all county,state and federal elections.

    Wrote mine yesterday on the state of affairs we are in.......lol he wont be getting my vote either. We need to put a fresh clean slate of people and see if they can do better than we have now. Have a new motto, "VOTE FOR THE NEW GUY or GAL", cant hurt!!!!!!

    I always felt that if a person didn't stand up for what they feel is right, really don't have a right to gripe.:angry: The mind set of "oh well, my vote wouldn't count anyway" is how things get into the shape there in .

    So many people are voting for a change.

    Well, Adolf Hitler was for change. Joseph Stalin was for change. Chairman Mao was for change. Fidel Castro was for change...

    I'm sorry, but I want to know what change means.

    Yes, I'm afraid voting for the new guy or gal can indeed hurt.

    I write to mine every month. Jim Webb is the best in my book. I hope he gets a shot at V.P.

    I have several sites booked marked one is to the white house, others are to my reps. If you don't let your elected offficials know how you feel they will neve know. When is the last time you spoke up, or just say good or bad job. Also letting others know about something that our officials are doing is as inportant, get the word out and start e-mailing
