Citizen's meetings with Congress members can be done one-on-one, or in groups. Let's be honest here: It's not so easy to get in the door, and usually meetings occur with an Aide, though on occasion one might get lucky enough to talk with the politician him/herself.

The best way to assure success in arranging such a meeting is to go in with an activist group which is well-established. Under their wing, it becomes easier to secure meeting time.

I suggest that we ask Congress members, in as direct a way as possible, one question:

What's going on? Why is Congress deliberately creating an economic Depression?

Because according to Barak Obama, the automobile industry is the largest employer in the country, the backbone of our economy in large extent. Yet Congress refused to bail out the Big Three. They also approved war funding based on lies, which got us into this economic mess and recession. Clearly the sub-prime mortgage crisis was pre-arranged: Obviously the lenders targeted a civilian cross-sector who they knew would not be able to repay the loans, and that targeting was deliberate, based on decades of practiced advertizing skills. Be that as it may, it would seem apparent that the lenders knew they would lose, and were counting on Federal aid to bail them out. Apparently, something had been pre-arranged prior to this crisis? This while we actually pay our taxes to fund the ensuing economic crash, based on the bailout of fraud-based entities? WHOA!! Talk about betrayal of the public trust, which is a legal definition of "Treason" according to Findlaw.

Can we please meet with members of Congress face-to-face and let them know, in no uncertain terms, that they must back Obama's plan with their signature or....we will organize class action lawsuits (with those same activist entities who are meeting with them, as joined with other similar entities?)   

Make no mistake about it: The government can be sued. That's why the ACLU exists and that's why the Center for Constitutional Rights does its thing.

We can't let them get away with this. If we say that we are powerless, we are being cowards and accomplices.

Please contact activist entities and ask them to wake up and act before it's just plain too darned late, ie while money is still in hand. Ask them to organize class action lawsuits against Congress for deliberately robbing us of our life's savings, our homes, our food on our plates and god forbid even worse if this all keeps going. And all that, to boot, while we pay them to do it. Time for a change? Let's go!
