Some people think its impossible to hold their Legislator accountable and feel they have no other option but to complain to others about that online or at a Party meeting. They attend a meeting or two or three and get something in their party’s platform or agenda, but low and behold, it doesn’t miraculously become law and that person determines they are disenfranchised and encourage others to be as outraged as they are……
They rail against the party and Legislators as a whole because their idea didn’t become law even though that’s not how it works. That’s not how any of that Constitutional Governance works….
Look, I am not trying to mock people, I am trying to educate people on how to be effective. I see so much disinformation and people stoking faux controversies online I had to speak up. I’m mocking to get your attention so that you will allow yourself to be educated in how to get things done. That is after all why most of us are involved in politics isn’t it? To get better laws passed?
If you want to change legislation, the place to do that is not at your BPOU meetings. Its at the Capitol. That’s where they write and vote on legislation.
I challenge you all to contact your Legislator on a regular basis. They even encourage it. Its not that hard.
How do I contact my legislator? How do I let a representative or senator know how I feel about an issue?
You can call, email, or write a letter to your legislator’s office. Email is most effective if it is not a blanket mailing to all members. When sending an email, remember to include your name, postal address and phone number.
They even go on to give your helpful Do’s & Don’ts. Like:
“Don’t threaten legislators”
Have you contacted your Legislators lately? Whether or not you have a Democrat or Republican representing you? Because the foot soldiers of Marxism are bombarding ALL Legislators with hundreds of contacts daily to grow Government and erode freedoms and liberties.
No seriously, go visit the Capitol and talk to your Legislators at their job where they do the work you want to influence. They even give you directions and tell you where you can park…
There are thousands of lobbyists and special interests who already know all of this and show up every single day to badger Legislators into passing or opposing laws. The 201 Legislators at the Capitol are outnumbered by those lobbyists and special interests.
Maybe before you devote all your time and energy into being outraged online and planning a monthly meeting to encourage others to be as outraged as you…. Maybe you could try to calmly contact your Legislators and talk to them.
