Welcome to Never Silent
In a letter to Col. William F. Elkins on Nov. 21, 1864, Abraham Lincoln wrote, “I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country [...] corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.”
We're afraid he's right, but we'd like to make him wrong (and we don't think he'd mind). The thing is, we can't do it alone.
You’ve heard it before: We are a nation divided; so divided that progress is being lost in the screaming. Red vs. blue, republicunt, libtard. We’re screaming at each other about these things, while the issues we need to TALK about are sliding under our noses.
The only way out of that game is not to play it. We need real discussion and effective activism about policies themselves. We will be asking: What will this BILL do? What has this LAW accomplished (or not)? Who has benefitted from these things, and who suffers? And most importantly: what do we do about any of it?
No matter which argument gets you fired up, we’re not going to tell you what your opinion should be - it's your voice to raise as you will. But we do hope to help you start raising it more effectively, taking real action more often. And then we hope you’ll never shut up.
Call Your Representatives!
There's plenty to talk about, and it's easy to let your Members of Congress, Senators, and Representatives know what you think.
Dial (202) 224-3121 and enter your zip code; you’ll be directly connected to a menu that allows you to choose your Senator’s or Congressmen’s offices.
