Poll: Do you contact your representatives?

As the title says, do you ever contact your local, state and/or federal representatives regarding concerns and issues? And if so, how often?

Sure do.

Not often. Once or twice a year, maybe? Depends on the possible legislation on the board.

Yes, but usually only when something pretty directly affects us, such as proposed changes to local zoning or local speed limits, federal tax reform and health care. I don't think my contacting them had any impact whatsoever. I only got part of what I wanted for tax reform and that had nothing to do with me contacting anyone.

All the time. "WTF are you thinking about, moron?"

Do you know the difference between an honest politician and a crooked politician? An honest politician stays bought.

If you aren't in the top 0.10% you're a peasant. Like me. Good access cost about $2K per year per politician unless you brought them up through the ranks. You heard it here first.

Yes. Maybe 3 times a year. I will have two phones. On one phone, I’ll call my representative, and on the other, I’ll call a Vietnamese restaurant. Then I put the two phones together so they can chat with each other.

You've probably done more to help build our country by exercising this schema than nearly anyone else on the forums. When the politicians are tied up doing things, they can't fuq things up.
