The first action of the new congress is clear sign of what's to come. Attempting to take over the independent ethics board is a very clear sign. What happened next is a very clear sign as well. As we see action by this congress that is not in line with our will, we need to act and act fast. We need to call our congressional offices. We need to show up. We need to let them know how we feel about every action they take.
Perhaps this election is a wake up call letting us know that's it's not enough to go the polls and vote, then let the legislators have their way. We need to be engaged. We need to ask questions. We need to let them know how we want them to vote on every single issue. If we don't like how they voted, we need to let them know.
If you're aware of an upcoming vote or one that just happened - share it. If you plan to go to a congressional office express your opinion, enlist some like minded people to go with you. Be polite. Be specific. Be factual. BE ENGAGED!
Don't broadcast what you're doing. Be strategic and specific. Build coalitions. Create a wave.
It will work.
