Democracy imbues the citizens of that democracy with many rights. Along with those rights come some responsibilities. The United States of America is a representative democracy. All this means is that we elect individuals to represent us in our government instead of our having a direct voice about how laws are passed.

Voting is only one way to we can influence our government. The other way is by letting our representatives in Congress know how we feel about various issues. In some ways, this is more important than our votes. It does little good to vote someone into office if they end up not representing our views.

That is why the Motley Moose has provided this section of our web site. You can use the link on this page to send a message to your representatives through The site uses your zip code to identify your representatives and senators.
