: ...accomplish. It seems to me that with her support of moveon.com, she is already in contact with the kinds of people that oppose the war, and I'm sure she had already heard about the UN "Unite for peace" resolution that was part of the original email in question.
: I suppose I could call and talk to one of her secretaries, but I just can't imagine what effect that will have. I have already emailed and faxed my public officials (who represent Michigan) and they have, for the most part, ignored me. Some of them are anti-war so I forgive them, but I'll return the favor to the others by "ignoring" them next time I vote... I'll vote for whoever opposes them.
: : : Andreas,
: : : I have been to Rep. Eshoo's web site and she is only obligated to respond to her constituents in California. For this reason, I cannot contact her.
: : +++ So, contacting her is an unsurmountable problem for you?
+++ 1) Regard her as a possible "multiplicator"
... with a lot of insider contacts.
2) As she is Assyrian (or: Assyrian/Armenian ?) she could help the antiwar sympathizers within the silent Assyrian masses to come forward and to form and voice their opinion.
3) ... and so on and so on ...
