We all need to call our reps NOW!

I called my house rep, a conservative republican who wants to repeal Obamacare. This is my 5th call to that office in 5 days. Today the person who answered the phone told me that based on their data, only about 20 percent of the people calling were angry with the party or Mr. Republican for the shutdown. She said they felt the 70 percent blaming republicans number being put out there is grossly exaggerated.

Ok, what that tells me is, people are not calling, they are coming here and other places to vent, but not calling the people we need to call to make them listen.

They listen to the TP people who call them all the time. They organize better than we do, they make it seem like there are more of them than there are of us. We need to do the same, ring their phones till they are sick of us.

She may have been talking the party line, but it sounded honest to me. I was nice to her, I apologized for the job she had to do but I had to make myself heard. She didn't want to hear.
