Weak Democratic Senat Seats In 2018 – How You Can Influence Them

01 Feb
Weak Democratic Senat Seats In 2018 – How You Can Influence Them

I have compiled a list of several Democrat Senators in weak districts (for them) that are up for reelection in 2018. It has their names, all of their office addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers (minus one Senator that has apparently and understandably given up on the technology), and at least one email address.

I’m posting it here so you can bookmark it and use it to advocate for whatever issues you feel passionate about. Personally, I will be using this list to push for confirmation of Neil Gorsuch without having to use the nuclear option of eliminating filibuster rules, and the total defunding of Planned Parenthood. After that, it all depends on the issue, the level of opposition, and the amount of votes needed to pass a piece of legislation I may be concerned about.

You do not have to be a resident of a district to lobby a Senator. Even if you’re not eligible to vote for or against them, you have the power to finance their opposition and vigorously campaign against them. Let them know you’re one-hundred percent willing and able to do so if they’re going to be steadfast in voting against issues that are important to you.

Call! Snail mail! Do not just use email exclusively. A human listens to everyone, and that information gets transmitted where it needs to go. If you have a phobia of talking to real people, like I do, call after hours when you know you’ll get a machine. Call every office. Also, letters pile up, they leave a physical presence. Bags of mail will garner some attention. Again, if your finances permit, send a letter to every office.

On the phone (or voice-mail), you can, and should, keep it simple. “Hello, my name is (your name) and I am/am not a supporter of (cause). It is important to me that Senator X supports the (legislation/confirmation regarding your cause).” It’s really that simple. Extraneous information does little good because you cannot make a spreadsheet out of feelings. Just stick to the basics.

With letters or email you should be a bit more personal, but try to stick to just a few paragraphs. Be direct but respectful. Tell them how their action will affect you as an individual and list your concerns.

This is how you enact change. Cute cardboard signs are just that, cute. Real advocacy takes time, significant effort, and sacrifice. I’m willing to do that for the issues that are important to me. Are you?

It’s not often that I ask people to share my posts, but this one is important. One or two voices will not make a difference. This information in the hands of the people that elected for change in 2016 could move mountains, though. The Left is actively mobilizing and we cannot afford to sit on our hands. Enforce your will! Share this list with your friends and encourage them to get involved as well.
