Do you have the required insight and maturity?
- Ignore the ambulance-chasing media and the wag-the-dog politicians?
- Overcome apathy?
- Avoid windmill-tilting?
- Use simple tactics to make Congress do what YOU want?
If so, you can be an Agenda Setter.
Agenda Setters realize that…
- Voting harder doesn’t work.
- Neither does arguing on Facebook.
Both things are distractions. Meanwhile…
Lobbyists are meeting with politicians to write the bills that rule your life. So…
You must do the same!
Does that sound impossible?
- Are you too introverted?
- Do you feel unqualified?
- Do you lack the time?
- Are you afraid to go alone?
- Is travel to Washington too expensive?
Well, none of that matters because…
- The meeting will happen in your own town
- Friends will go with you
- Others can do the talking, unless you’re good at it!
You can set the congressional agenda by spending only an hour or two per year
Best of all, no meetings will happen until 300 people agree to go with you. This will guarantee success.
We call this Option Activism.
You have the option to do nothing until enough people agree to do something. We think 300 people will be more than enough.
These people will visit local congressional offices in groups of 3-10, week after week, month after month.
Most members of Congress will sponsor your bill at some point during that process.
This isn’t just likely, or probable, it’s nearly guaranteed. Better yet…
- No bill ever requires all 435 House members.
- We just need a majority – 218 in the House.
- That will give us enough support to force a vote, using a special procedure called a discharge petition.
- But the congressional leadership will probably schedule a vote long before that point.
Seize this opportunity!
Be an Agenda Setter. Become one of the 300 for one or more of the proposals below.
The One Subject at a Time Act (OSTA): HR 2240 reintroduced by Russ Fulcher [R-ID]
Each bill must deal with only one subject. Courts cannot enforce bills that violate this requirement. Be one of the 300 for this proposal.
S. 2566: Prohibiting Punishment of Acquitted Conduct Act
This bill will prohibit judges from sentencing people to prison for allegations that were acquitted in court. Yes, such things do happen. Roughly 30,000 people are serving terms for crimes they didn’t commit. Be one of the 300 for this proposal.
Restore federal parole.
The U.S. shouldn’t lead the world in incarceration. We need to empty the American Gulag. Restoring federal parole can help that happen. Be one of the 300 for this proposal.
