Federal Politicians (Congress)

Send a letter to Congress

We provide the first few words of the letter so that Congressional offices will see the most important point right at the start, and so that no one can hijack our system for another purpose. Here's the part we provide . . .

I deny my consent for drug prohibition.
ZIP code is required so we can determine which Congressional “representative” to direct your letter to.

Petition

Your letter to Congress is a temporary action. But putting your name on a petition that the public can see is a permanent record of your principled resistance to immoral “laws” and programs. The impact is even greater if you allow your name to be shown on a map. That way people can visualize the growing denial of consent nationwide.

I Disagree

We think we will attract more people to our site, and have more participation, if we also allow people to disagree with us. In fact, we think we should give disagreement equal time. That’s why we’re giving people a prominent place to declare their disagreement, right below the petition. We also hope to make this a place where a dialog can happen.

Personal Press Release SM

Imagine being able to contact the media the same way you contact Congress. Imagine being able to send a Personal Press Release each time you Deny Consent for some immoral “law” or program. Imagine how the media will react when they start getting these Personal Press Releases denying consent from hundreds and then thousands of people. You’ll also be able to use this tool to pressure the media for better journalistic practices. They need to stop serving The State and start serving YOU.

Friends

Imagine being able to track the results of your educational and recruitment efforts. The tools we’ll place in this section will empower you to do that. You’ll be able to create personalized contact lists. You’ll be able to use these list to educate and recruit. This will include the use of interactive polls using our new polling software. These polling messages will allow you to find people who already agree with you, and then ask them to join you in denying consent. We call this “agreement recruiting.” Discovering people who already agree is a lot easier than persuading people who disagree, right? This section will give you powerful tools to both educate and recruit. If you want to help us fund the creation of these tools you can contribute using our secure form.

Institutions

Imagine being able to also inform institutions that you have denied consent – groups like AARP or NRA. These groups have major lobbyist sway. This tool could empower you to influence the organizations that influence the politicians. What if you could simply create doubt amongst these institutions, keeping them on the sidelines rather than working to expand statism?

Donors

Imagine being able to educate local political donors about why you have denied consent to various immoral “laws” and programs. You may be able to nudge their thinking in a new direction.
