​Legislators listen to corporate lobbyists
because they're the only ones doing the talking.


The corporate media and our Republican controlled schools don't want you to know that Lobbying is the only thing that can restore our democracy.
 
Nothing is more important in our government

than lobbying.


Learn why we can't do without it,
when, where, and how to lobby,
and how to contact your local, state,

and federal legislators.

The Legislative Process


The Ten Biggest Lies in America
You've Heard All of Them

Public Demonstrations Do Bring Change 
History is made by those who show up.


​Standing and Pledging:  Style versus Substance
How one man's courage created a movement

America's Police Problem:  Cause and Cure
Our greatest power is within our grasp.


​Lobbying is the effort to convince local, state, and federal officials to support or oppose legislation and policies

reflecting your positions. 


Everyone can do it.
It doesn't cost a dime.

You Can Influence Government Regulations

The Republicans are governing by fantasy.


Why We Need More Lobbyists
Nothing is more American than a good, old-fashioned lobbyist.

You Can be a Lobbyist


Find Your Representatives


Get Your Message to Your Legislators

Our schools are supposed to teach this stuff, but they don't want you to know it.


Petitions Don't Guarantee Success
What makes a proper petition? And are they useful?

Beware the Politics of Distraction
Pay attention to what the media isn't telling you.




Lobbying


Lobbying is not what the media tells you it is.

"Giving money to legislators" is not lobbying.

Express Lobbying

As explained by

Newton’s Laws of Motion


1.  An object at rest will remain at rest.

An object in motion will remain in motion.

Unless acted upon by an outside force.

Nothing moves in government

unless someone pushes it.

2.  Force equals mass times acceleration.

The harder you push, the more it can move.

3.  For every action,

there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Be prepared for people to push back.
