Make a cup of coffee. Walk to the restroom. Surf the web. Drive to the store. Contact a client.
Most of these things take as little as 5 minutes. You know what else you could add to the list? Calling your local Congressman and telling him or her to vote no on the bailout bill.
Your voice does matter. I know my local Congressman asks for a tally of how many people called in support or in rejection of a bill or measure. It affects how he votes.
So yes you can make a difference in as little as 5 minutes. Call them now. Let your voice be heard. As a citizen, you hold the power in this nation. And yes, your call does count.
After you call, tell all your friends to call and encourage them to make a difference.
If you need help finding out who your local Congressman is or how to contact them, leave me a comment with your zip code and I’ll email you their name and number. Together we can make a difference in how Washington is run.
