Are you like me? I hate to make phone calls, especially to my elected officials. Before the staffer even answers the phone, my palms are sweating and my voice is quivering. Ugh, my blood pressure is rising just thinking about it.
You can imagine how excited I was to discover a tool that makes reaching out to your representatives quick and easy. It's called Resistbot and the tool allows you to use your the text messaging feature on your mobile phone to send a fax to your reps in the house and the senate.
It is so easy to get started:
After you've sent a few messages, you will earn "elite" features like the option to specify a particular representative (by default, the message is sent to all three of your reps). Effective today, you can also opt to send postal mail -- Resitbot even covers the stamp!
The tool is completely free (excluding any charges from your carrier for texting) although you can make a donation if you like. The tool is created and maintained by a group of volunteers who are "deeply opposed to the direction of the country."

to get started. It takes less than 5 minutes to have your voice heard in Congress.
