Good news! Last month, we sent out postcards to save the Elliot Forest, and it was a part of a successful campaign.
Here are our efforts for this month’s actions. Adapt them as you like, but remember to remain polite and direct. I included one angry rant option as the last postcard. If you do send an angry rant, be sure to never threaten, as this is illegal.
Send these to your local representatives. Please note that most of this round are for matters that relate to the House of Representatives.
In Oregon, I recommend writing to Greg Walden, our Republican rep, since he’s the most necessary to persuade. He has different offices, so you can use various destinations. I understand it is best to mail in to regional offices for all reps, rather than to D.C.
Also, it’s best to add your zip code after your name, to verify that you are a constituent, or live in their state.

Dear Honorable Greg Walden,
I am very concerned about DeVos’ school voucher system proposed in HR 610. Citizens need the federal government to support the equal education of every child. I am most concerned for kids who with IEP’s, in special education, ESL, and who need school lunches. Please vote No on HR 610.
Name and Zip Code
I am very concerned about the repeal of the protections on wildlife that occurred in Congress this week. It is repugnant to allow so-called hunters to slaughter wolf and bear’s in their dens while they are hibernating. Please consider legislature that will improve the dignity of hunters in regards to animal rights.
I am writing in regards to concern over HB 1986 and HB1894. I feel these are discriminatory bills that attempt to make it illegal for transgendered people to live in the peace and freedom that all Americans should be granted. Please vote no on these and any future bills that might arise of a similar nature.
I am writing with great concern over the repeal of the AHA and the proposed “TrumpCare” that only would make it very hard for me to get insurance. We need a system that is affordable up front, and not just in tax breaks. I also hope to have options on which doctors I see, including acupuncture and naturopaths. Please prove the GOP can care for the people better than the AHA, rather than supporting the rich, insurance companies and medical institutions.
I am very concerned about the Trump Budget proposal. It aims to dismantle key non-profit programs that our community needs. This money is small to the US Federal Treasury, but means the world to the disabled, the hungry, the elderly, and the young. Please only pass a budget that supports the non-profits that helps the impoverished and others in need.
And, for those of you who need to vent and skip the polite, feel free to send along a bit of reflection on the bastard’s recent decision on the value of your privacy this week:
I am enraged that you and the GOP gave away the right to sell my private browser history to the highest bidder. Your actions make it apparent that you have no value for your constituents’ best interests. I hope someone purchases and publishes your browser history to learn more about your “interests”. I am sure they are as twisted as your integrity as a representative.
Rot in Hell,
Thank you for taking part in the democratic process as citizens.
