Writing_letterI sometimes write my congressmen about an issue of importance. But I have never realized before now what an impact that letter can have upon their thinking. Of course I know that all congressmen must follow their party and vote the way they are told to vote. If they don’t, then they don’t get any of that free money that helps them to campaign to get elected again. Only those who have enough of their own campaign money are free to vote the way they choose. But, if they get enough letters and emails and faxes supporting a particular position, they will listen and pay attention and perhaps even vote the way their people at home want them to. Give it a try. Write your congressmen and write them and write them some more.
