I love this post and couldn't agree more! Altho, I might make my own political post later. Depends on how long everybody on my friends list keeps GRIPING about it! <-- that's not directed at you.

Or, do both ;)
My mom has something she calls a "Nonsense Filter" and that's when she can't hear what my dad is saying at all, because it's all nonsense and her filter is on.

I have a "nonsense filter" too, but it's for what *I* am saying. I can spit out purely precisely what I'm feeling, my knee jerk reaction, at those people I trust most, and see what happens, what comes back at me.

Then, from that, I can make sense out of it, look at it from all sides, see a bigger picture. And THAT is what can go to the senators, congressmen and representatives. AFTER it's gone through you guys, my own personal nonsense filter ;)

Before I throw a bunch of passionate, un-thought-out crap at a congressman who would pfft and throw it away.

BTW, welcome home!

I'm afraid you are wrong love
I live in Texas. I accomplish more by spilling into my journal than I would writing my senator.

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
Then explain how you are making a difference voicing something that your rep can't see?

I am curious

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
I'm making a difference in my life only. In my journal I can spill out all of the hurt and disalusionment I am feeling about the American people. By spilling all that our here, I am reducing the poison in my own system. I literally spent the majority of yesterday crying. I spilled out my thoughts in my journal and with a few friends, and today I am doing much better. I am even smiling some. By next week I will be able to work on how I can make a difference in the real world. But my representative does not represent me, and does not need me to win any election. Writing my representative will accomplish nothing except killing more trees. I may eventually do it anyway, but now I will mourn and then work out something useful.

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
Phoenix <---- completely sober


You know when I state take action I am not talking about everyone’s passionate spill of emotions. I am talking about If you support a cause or certains you should write them out to the reps. Not talking about emotional out burst or anything. If that was the case I would have been arrested for violent language crude remarks.

Now that I have clarified my statement.. You think you are being just a little negitve by saying I am wrong? I did say I was right I said here was some information for those that want to make a difference. It your view but it doesn’t make it 100% correct for everyone else.

I know things seem stressful but I think you are being a tad bit more negative than normal.

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
I'm definatly more negative than normal . That's one of the reasons that this has been so bad to me. I tend to live life as an optimist. I dump my negativity out to a few friends or in my journal, then I can go back to beleiving that things will get better. I'm trying very hard to get to that point here. I'm finding it very very difficult. I'm doing a bit better, and it won't take too much time before I am acting instead of complaining. But I do still stand by that I think you were wrong about the fact that writing my representative would accomplish more than writing in my journal. I am going to take action though. I believe I am going to sign on to volunteer for the Human Rights Campaign. Either them or Straight Not Narrow. And I'm going to look into starting to attend Town Council meetings. They are boring, but I think it's time I learned what was going on where I live. It will make it easier for me to take action if I have more of an idea of what is REALLY going on rather than the snippets we get from the media.

Hey more power to yah in getting more envolved. And you are entitled to think what you want it's the beauty of the nation.

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
you'd be surprised how few cards and letters your representatives get.

You'd be even more surprised to know how heavily they rely on volunteers, especially to get elected.

Because of those principles, I am a registered Democrat. I vote in the Democrat primaries. I have volunteered for Democrats who were campaigning. .

The end results? A relatively insignificant number of us were able to get a Democrat to sign on to a Republican bill for the conditional repeal of the motorcycle helmet law in Texas.

And who says politics is boring.

Re: I'm afraid you are wrong love
Call the office of the person you want to support. Tell them that you want to volunteer.

Easy as can be.
