The Congressional switchboard is full.
Fill up the email as well!
Don’t forget to tell them to defund Obamacare too!
already contacted mine on Saturday
My guys have heard from me. BTT
Just e-mailed mine.
It would be far more effective if the Tea Party organized primary challenges to any Republican that votes for war.
Done and done......
Already did this Monday night. Repeated it last night. We must keep up the pressure .
Yup and I’m leaning on Stabenow and Levin as well.
Yes! Keep their feet to the fire!
From Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-OH. Rather non-committal, I would say.
Thank you for getting in touch with me about the current situation in Syria.
What began as a movement calling for basic democratic reforms has evolved into a struggle against the brutal dictatorship of President Bashar Assad. Since the protests started in March 2011, the situation has devolved into an increasingly bloody conflict leaving thousands killed and wounded.
The United States has joined its allies in condemning the use of force and has undertaken diplomatic efforts to end the rule of President Assad. I support these actions and agree that the Syrian government must respect the rights of its citizens. The United States must remain engaged in this situation and not turn its back on those who seek peace and the rule of law.
One of the gravest threats for all of humanity is weapons of mass destruction. The 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention outlaws the production, stockpiling, and use of chemical weapons. By mid 2013, 189 nations had ratified the treaty. While, as of January 2013, an estimated 78% of the worlds declared chemical weapons stockpiles have been destroyed, this doesnt remove the threats from certain nations, terrorist groups, and nations in violent transition such as what is happening in Syria. It is also important to note that Syria was one of five nations not to have signed the treaty, the others being Angola, North Korea, Egypt, and South Sudan.
I have been a long-time advocate for ensuring that protecting human rights remains one of the cornerstones of our nations foreign policy. We must do all we can to support peaceful efforts in pursuit of freedom, democracy, and the rule of law. Like many Ohioans, I believe that President Obama should make his case to the American people and consult with Congress before taking any military action.
I will continue to monitor the situation closely, and I will be sure to keep your thoughts in mind. Thank you again for getting in touch with me.
United States Senator
A primary challenge to any GOPer for not opposing anything that the Destroyer in Chief wants.
I wrote Cornyn numerous times. The times I did get a response it was a form letter that had nothing to do with the subject at hand. They don’t care what we think.
