I appreciate the effort and I have previously contacted my representatives on several issues but I am convinced the "chain letters" are ineffective.
I know what I'd do if I got a bunch of identical letters in the mail... I'd throw them away. I don't care if I agree with the opinion or not.... My opinion would be "Wow, they care so much they couldn't be bothered to type their own letter."
Write to them, call them, email them, yes. Please don't print a letter that a thousand other people are going to print and send them.
Have enough passion to think your own thoughts and express them in your own words.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
