Oh, you never know. enough people pulling in the same direction, well, it can really accomplish alot. See B of A...Verizon, Governments plan to require religons to provide birth control. All of these above were turned around 180 degrees by nothing other than public participation. That said, each example was able to field FAR more than 7700 people on the ground. If thats a true figure, we got alot of work to do. There is such a thing in C.C. ( congress critter ) land, that says if we make a big enough pain of ourselves, we might get what we want, just to get us to shut up, and let them have their election in peace. So that means, a bunch of us are going to have to send twice the tweets and facebook posts that Rich requests. Lets do the math...say we get 6000 out of the 7700, to participate daily. And each one of us sends more communications than Rich requests. By my little adding machine, thats well over 10,000 pieces of communication. Every single day. Thats a start.
