I like your idea; not a Rep, but a good idea is a good idea.

Get 'm team. It takes conviction to make this energy show up at elections. Most will have forgotten.

We need more Republican support for campaigns to break "R" regions away from "D" states. Northern California, Upstate New York, Northeastern Colorado, and my home of Western Maryland all seek independence from liberals who inadequately represent us.

Did you guys see the 3B money for a KY dam added to the debt bill? Pork for McConnell apparently. It's outrageous.

I'm not sure that was from him. I believe Lamar Alexander has been working on that for some time, maybe with someone else. McConnell may have helped too I don't know.

Seem to get the picture. Their last attempt, they sent me a prepaid envelope asking for me to return a check. Instead of a check, I wrote them a short but fiery letter explaining why there is no check in the envelope. Now I know you're thinking...

This sounds ridiculous, and it probably is, but it's an avenue we haven't tried yet. Emails and voicemails can be deleted without batting an eyelash. I know paper letters can be thrown away, but think about this for a second. Paper letters are...

Tangible. Think of the filibuster scene from Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. On the floor of the Senate, they bring out thousands of letters. That makes a statement. So if we convince all of our friends to write snail mail letters and overflow their...

Handwritten letters are thought to represent the thoughts of more people than phone calls or email. It does make a greater impact.

Of more probable import, though, in putting their nuts in a vice by withholding funds. My dad donates to specific candidates, never to the party. This keeps them from doing their own thing and ignoring the people so much.

I am also going to volunteer somewhere to help get Lamar Alexander out next year. Have been looking into it.

That is what we need! I'm volunteering for Matt Bevin in Kentucky who's running against McConnell. I don't even live there! Get involved and purge the GOP!

I find it very interesting that you have brought up the precise thing that I am doing. I currently have 4 or 5 of those letter/bills that I have gotten in the past few days that I am doing the exact same thing with.
