    Congress. They need to hear that we are watching and concerned. I stick to issues like Iraq and Iran right now, but make certain every time Congress does a good thing for our country like examining Kyle Sampson so effectively, I email and call them to support them.

    I now usually get letters back when I call and speak with a Congressional staff member. They are form letters, but that's fine - there is starting to be the occasional note from my Congressman, for whom I campaigned. So I have built some credibility and always temper suggestions with approval for actions my congresscritters take that I think are helpful.

    Some rapport building has paid off. Partly with our suggestions and encouragement, I think the Dems are starting to deliver more progressive legislation and they are definitely holding effective hearings.

    Domestic policy can only defeat us; foreign policy can kill us. --John F. Kennedy
