Sigh... we spend all this time trying to explain to people what we do, how the system works, how everyone is trying to screw you and you post this. If you want to "lobby", join a state chapter - we will give you the platform to do all the lobbying you have time for.

Like lobbyists, we stalk the "lobby's" of Congress and do meetings (I was doing this on Monday) -- but we are more powerful than lobbyists because we can do district meetings, which lobbyists traditionally don't do. As constituent's we have more influence (and respect) than lobbyists. Everyone knows lobbyists have sold their souls to sell something they don't necessarily believe in - but when we go to DC, people realize that we have taken time off work, paid our own way to come down to DC, they respect that and want to hear what we want to say. If someone from (say) Alaska, Montana, the Dakota's flies down to a lobby day - I guarantee you we will get a meeting with all Congressmen and Senators in the state (not just their offices).


We can't donate money though, since it is illegal - everything else is fair game (and we do it).

You may not understand it, but that doesn't change the facts.
