    To all that love shooting sports and firearms,

    Have you contacted your State's Senators and Represenatives lately? David has a link @ the top of this forum. I used it today to email my Senators and Represenatives. If you have not used this link, it is very simple and will take you right to the person whom you need to contact. We all need to now, more than ever contact our Government Officials.

    Sincerely,
    Matt Woodson - Owner of Woodson Ent.

    Matt: To save some time I copied and pasted my response on another thread regarding this. It is a total waste of time. They don't give a $hit about any of us. Ed

    This has been discussed before. All I hear is contact your representatives. Well within the last year I contacted my elected representatives 12 times. ( 4 times each for my 2 US Senators and 4 times for my US Representative) The queries ranged from the budget, to the stimulus package and illegal immigration. Here are the results. One US Senator answered back 2 out of the 4 times I contacted him. The answer amounted to a bunch of political rhetoric as to why he voted with Harry Reid. The Representative reported back to me 2 out of the 4 times I contacted him. Same deal; political rhetoric on why he voted in lockstep with Nancy Pelosi. And last but not least was my beloved Senator Blanche Lincoln, (Arkansas) who has of yet to recognize my existence. Oh well she is zero for 4, so at least she is consistent. These people do not care. You only hear from them when they near re-election and then they crawl out from under their rock and promise the voters everything under the sun. This government is corrupt from the top down. They want power and control. You mean nothing to them except a paycheck. I might add the only politicians you hear from regularly are the likes of Barney Frank, Pelosi, Conyers, etc. They do the talking because their constituents will never vote them out. So they are safe being the mouthpiece for the other cowards. Contact my representatives?? Been there and done that. Ed

    I called one of my US Senators yesterday and was in the office of my rep to the state assembly today. I do drop by fairly often. So far they don't lock me out but time will tell.

    The media and liberal pundits are sure doing their best to marginalize the Tea Party protests.

    Got to go along with Ed, sometimes it seems a waste. I can't count the letters I've sent. I'm in NC. While she was one of our Senators, Elizabeth Dole would answer my letters as would Richard Burr.
    Our so called Representative from this district Bob Etheridge has not once acknowledged any of my many faxes or letters. Well I guess I might have p---ed him off. I told him how I felt about his pro amnesty stance and how we really need the illegals take, (he actually told me this to my face when I confronted him on his sheilding the Illegals in 2005). I may be peeing up a rope but I'll continue writing them. The newspapers in Mr. Etheridge's district will receive letters to the editor, I'll point out his voting record It's not a very impressive one, as he is a confirmed "Democialist". I will talk to anyone who will listen about how little he has done for NC. He zero's in on the entitlement seeking base, promises the elevator then give the state the shaft. Typical Politician pure self serving bottom feeding scum. Do I sound disgusted? Well yes I am. Am I going to give up? Absolutely not!!!! J.W.

    My rep is a liberal Democommunist. He does what he pleases. Wins overwhelmingly every election. Doesn't even care what members of his own political persuasion think, because he knows the other party can not be competitive in this district. The sad thing is that the Democrat drones in this district haven't figured that out. It requires a substantial higher IQ than most them possess.........

    I regularly write and email to all three of my federal elected officials. I always get an answer back from John Shimkus, my representative in S.Illinois. In many years of corresponding with Dick ( and I do mean a dick ) Durbin, I have never received a reply. The same goes for Senator Burris, no reply, but I guess he's got enough trouble just holding on to his butt.

    Guess which ones are Democrats and the one whose a Republican.

    I live in Western New York. BOTH of our senators are now effectively anti-gun and my Representative is Louise Slaughter. Pointless!
