Somebody tell me why these are preferable to sending a civil, well-reasoned letter to our elected officials.
Agreed, I’m not sure how something even a little confrontational helps our cause.

Keep in mind that most Senators and Representatives are bombarded with correspondence and employee staff members whose only job is to sort through all of this information and give them a tally. More less all they want to know are my constituents for or against a specific issue.
