Your Calls to Congress Make a Difference

For months, proponents of the farm bill have declared that farms desperately need and universally want this trillion dollar bill. They assume that farmers are demanding the spending. For at least one farm-heavy congressional district, the phone calls disagree.

Through the entire August recess and during a rally to support the big spending farm bill, one DC congressional office recorded only ten phone calls in support of the bill. Because of that, the staff and the Representative strongly oppose the bill.

When a bill’s proponents, in this case industry lobbyists, say there is a groundswell of ‘support’ for this ‘important’ bill, congressional staff check the phone logs. This is why your calls are powerful.

Despite big government lobbyists urging for immediate passage of this bill and invoking a ‘crisis,’ the office we talked to takes the low call volume as a sign that their district is taking the conservative position.

Similarly, when you and your conservative friends make the choice to call your Members of Congress, those calls make a difference. An office may begin to take the conservative position more seriously, or they may be motivated to take the lead on an issue they’d otherwise ignore.

When the district speaks, good elected officials listen.

  1. I’m sure this is true that if you continue to keep contact with these “public servants” you will make some sort of impression but also I am convinced they do not care nor do they listen to it in any serious sense. They pretend to hear you. They will not consider it. This is how it has been with Jay Inslee since I’ve lived here this last time. They voted him out of Eastern WA and he came to the W of the state and infiltrated here instead, where the people were more “receptive” (obedient). Inslee is hard core left having helped to orchestrate a lot of what we have going on now. He is immersed in the complicity of Agenda 21 and it explains his want to become governor, quick before even the most harshly Lobamatized will notice and join the party of liberty..

  2. Republican Leadership

    As long as our Republican Representatives continue to elect RINO Status Quo leaders like Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, John Boehner, Eric Cantor, Jeb Hensarling & Tom Price we will continue to get the same ‘ol, same ol’ failed staus quo policies and the virtual rejection of the conservative ideas that have helped elect many of them. I am tired of professional politicians like John Boehner and Mitch McConnel calling themselves conservates. They are a failed disgrace to the Republican Party. All of the Republican Leadership from Reince Priebus down have failed the party and refuse to turn away from the failed policies of the past. They need to resign. The Republican Leadership in both houses of congress has shown total disdain for the Tea Party and failed to fully support the party platform and conservative (Tea Party) candidates.
    Give us new leadership or let’s start a new Conservative Party now, I’m tired of listening to Repulicans speaking conservative election rhetoric and governing like Democrats.
