Good idea from my Facebook feed. Who has others to share?

From my Facebook feed. Please it on. Also, if you have other ideas, perhaps we need to start up a Discussion Thread on what to do, how to help, who to call...etc.

Since Paul Ryan has blocked his office phones and faxes, and is turning away people who show up to deliver petitions, it's time to change tactics.
Please mail post cards to his home address saying NO to defunding Planned Parenthood, NO to repealing the ACA, and NO to privatizing Medicare!
Let's see what 67 million cards in the driveway looks like!
Real Americans resist.
Copy and paste this to pass it on.

And those of you in his district, get active in the district. Hold rallies outside of his office.

I feel like we should be like Dumbledore sending all those letters to Harry Potter (first movie: Sorcerer's Stone) congratulating him on being accepted into Hogwarts.

so we shouldn't really do anything... this attitude is why the Dem party is where it's at today.

Guess what, if he holds his mail, we'll send him a telegram. Can't send a telegram, send your correspondence as registered mail. If you got a bit of extra scratch, send a letter via UPS or FedEx.

But it's better to do nothing, I guess than think creatively about how to get to him.
