Please fillout the following poll and you don't need to comment with your name. I need the truth. Am I one of the few pushing the wheelbarrow?

I've only e mailed my representative so far. Because most elected officials changed today. And only he had a website up and running properly already.

I have contacted everyone, all the way up the chain to the potus. Even let those governing states I don't live in know how I feel.

I was surprised to get some personal responses here in Oregon, two sent from iPhone so pretty sure they were legit.

My message is clear, polite, and to the point, using the words no compromise where 2nd is concerned.

I've emailed but I'm not sure it did any good. The reply I got was obviously a canned reply just saying they appreciate my email blah blah blah. I think the only thing they ever really do is just to try to hang on to their office. It's obvious to me that voting them out doesn't work. It's time to flush them all but how do you do it if people keep voting straight tickets?

I wrote a letter to my congressman and both senators. Email is too easy to ignore. A real letter showdown they how much you care because it costs money and time to send. Everyone should do the same.

I will contact my reps every day and leave messages until they come to the phone or call me back and speak with me personally. I did send emails in the interim.

I have emailed all of mine so many times that I am begining to think that I am on a first name basis with them. Their response have been both canned emails and normal emails.

The difficult I do immediately, the impossible takes me a few minutes longer.
