Like "I have gone to Olympia twice this legilslative session to lobby for issues that were important to me, and I keep track of what bills are going into hearings so I can send my Representatives and Senator my opinions on how to vote. The American Cancer Society, AARP, and American Association of University Women have active PACs that keep me informed when bills of interest are going to be voted upon so I can send my DC Congressmen(women) my support. Interestingly, though I am a member also of American Diabetic Association, I seldom receive any emails from their Political Action Committee (if they have one). I gripe along with everyone else about the confusion and fear of the way America is heading, and how/who/why we are in the mess we're in, and have no solutions. But I try make my voice heard using the resouces at hand. "
