February 11, today, is “The Day We Fight Back”, an initiative to have the masses speak up and out to their local representative. I’m skeptical that writing e-mails or making phone calls will change much, if anything at all. Most of our congress critters, in my pessimistic view, are already in the pockets of some interest and that interest is not ours. But I also believe the one thing our political class loves more than money is their seat of power so maybe, just maybe, if enough phone calls are made so that a representative feels that seat is sufficiently threatened… well, who knows.
It’s certainly worth a try, so click the banner below and go send an e-mail or make a phone call to your local rep. It’s only a little thing but little things add up.
