GREETINGS TO MY FRIENDS FROM OLDDOG,
IF YOU STILL THINK YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN HOW YOUR CONGRESS CRITTERS VOTE, OR IF YOU WANT TO TELL THEM WHAT YOU THINK OF THEIR ALLEGIANCE TO THE BANKERS, HERE IS SOMETHING THAT WILL MAKE IT EASIER.
From Publius Huldah’s Blog
The federal courts have refused to enforce the Constitution. Congress has failed to impeach & remove usurping federal judges – it has failed to be the “check” on the federal courts. Therefore, WE must enforce the Constitution by means of nullification. WE must be the final “check” on the courts. Study & Learn so that you are qualified to do this. PH

Subject: the easiest way to email Congress: OpenCongress version 3
Today we are delighted to announce the release of a brand new open Congress version three. Now, open Congress offers the easiest way to write a letter to all your members of Congress, all on one page, then send it immediately over e-mail. As always, it’s free and open source for the public benefit.
We’re taking all the unique data that has made Open Congress the leading not for profit government transparency website in the United States and using it to power an innovative tool set for grassroots organizing and taking action.
Now you can write to all of your members of Congress at the same time, pulling campaign finance data, bill status info, legislative text, and more into your letter with a simple drag and drop process.
Contact-Congress makes it simple to write powerful, personalized letters to Congress in just a matter of minutes.
MyOC Groups—Coordinate your actions with people who care about the same issues as you. My OC groups is a free platform that makes it possible for anyone to start and lead a grassroots group for watchdogging, peer-to-peer educating, and organizing actions directed at Congress. Share your communications with Congress and publicly track responses from their offices. You can also find groups that are already working on stuff that you care about and get involved right away.
Over the past few days, with congressional web sites crashing due to massive interest in the debt ceiling debate, it’s become clearer than ever that we needed a better system for constituent communication with Congress. The new features were launching today are the foundation for an effective new platform for citizen engagement with our senators and representatives. Until now, it has not been possible to e-mail all of your members of Congress at the same time from one open-source, not for profit, website—unbelievable right?
But this is just the beginning. In the coming months we will be adding even more information about how special interest groups are influencing bills and votes—we’re continually improving our free tools for fighting corruption in politics and encouraging a more responsive democracy.
As always, all of our work will be free to use, free for developers to borrow and remix, and totally independent of political parties or business structures. OpenCongress is different because all of our data except for personal info, is available in the public commons to help build open knowledge and government accountability, something we need now as urgently as ever.
We invite you to take our new tools for a Spin and let us know what you think. Take a second to find a bill you care about from our unique list of major bills by issue area, choose whether you support or oppose it in the right-hand sidebar, and draft a quick letter to Congress using our new Contact-Congress tool. I think you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to write powerful and personalized letters to Congress. We’ll be continually highlighting some of the most-newsworthy and most-viewed public letters on our blog, so dive in–let the people who represent you in Congress know what you think !
David and the PPF team
