This chart represents the best guess of where each member of the House or Senate might stand based on public statements about Syria.


If your representative falls in the middle, before you do anything else, put down the mouse and pick up the phone now!

I made several phone calls today.

Talked to real people except for Boehner, so the phone lines are not being lite up with calls. My republican representative Duncan D Hunter--he's kind of of a no because he doesn't know what the end game is. Mc Clintock, R. CA, says no--if we strike, we are Al Qaida's air force. Feinstein's office said they would give her my message. When I pressed about her vote, they refused to answer. Boehner's was leave a message, so I was emphatic with my disgust for his siding with Obama against the American people.

Ribbed Olson good at his town

Ribbed Olson good at his town hall tonight, though he "said" he would vote no, his reasoning was that it was Obama's plan he was against. His voting record is aligned with the establishment so I am certain he will vote yes because Cantor will tell him to.

We are happy that the petroleum countries are accepting the dollar, right? If they didn't, then America would go down the drain.

Better yet...

We're FORCING them to accept the dollar.

I am ashamed of Virginia's congressmen.

One Virginia senator favors military action and one is undecided; my representative is also undecided.

I phoned both senators' offices within the week and e-mailed all three of my congressmen at least twice in the past week opposing military action in Syria. But do I believe it will make a difference? No, not unless a few million others join me.

Unfortunately, I don't think amerikans are awake enough to bother . . .

So sad really.

George Miller D California

Marked as undecided.

His local office is in Concord (CA) at Willow Pass and Diamond, in the complex behind Sizzler--in case anyone wants to join me in stopping by to drop off a note.

I've dropped notes off there, before. He's frequently wrong on issues, but sometimes surprisingly correct.

PS. I've written my note. Yesterday I overheard four veterans in a restaurant saying the idea to lob missles at Syria was stupid (one of them was 82, they told me). I'm including that in the note.

What do you think? http://consequeries.com/

Duncan D Hunter, CA:

"...If America is to have any immediate role in the removal of Assad, training and arming the opposition should be the extent of U.S. involvement, which is sufficient to show America’s solidarity with friends in the region.”

I phoned his local and D.C. offices asking for a NO vote to any action or funding. This guy voted against Amash on limiting NSA.

This is what I wrote to my representative Lamar Smith (TX)......

I am writing to ask that you vote no on going to war with Syria. I do not believe it is in the best interest of "We the people" in the US to fight a war that is not ours to fight. We are not the policemen of the world and this is not our battle and definitely not worth sending our military men and women to die for. I am also deeply concerned that this "no boots on the ground" statement only covers the first few weeks and will most certainly escalate into a full blown war that could include other countries as well. This is not worth the risks involved.

I don't think I have to write to my Senator because he is Ted Cruz, but I will anyway. I am sure he will vote no.

Pete Olson -R Tx (south houston) is having a town hall tonight. We'll learn his stance pretty soon.

Get crackin' on those phones!

This is a huge activism tool. *I had to click the link several times to get it to populate w/ the votes - anyone else?

Focus on all but the "hard yes" votes. Some members will pay lip service to being wary of this and suddenly vote yes.

I know

that I have heard Debbie Wasserman Shultz saying, the Chemical attack on the Syrian populace was the same as what Adolf Hitler did. She is for intervention. They have her in the undecided column.

Called My Rep and 2 Senators...

and told the folks answering the phone to forward to them a NO vote on Syria and to follow a non-intervention policy in Syria, no military action and I want a reply, from a constituent and Persian Gulf War Veteran.

Discusting ovation to Be Bee Nit Wit Yahoo. Even the IzUnreal gov never ever cheered this x cnn talking propagandist lier. But the glutunous pigs of congress dance to the zionist Rothscild strings from their private stolen state.


The same puppets cheering in this will cheer the deaths of many in the attack that will be foisted upon humanity.

"I just don't think the world can stand by..."

WTF? Are you from US Congress or "Congress of the world"? And what have Syria's internal affairs anything to do with the US?

These morons don't give a crap to the US Constitution, if anyone had doubts.

Soon they won't be able to spell the word any longer.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
