DJW writes here about Sen Obama's comments on the power of opinions and letters to your rep. It's not just the power of citizens to voice opinions but the power of good ideas. Don't underestimate the power of a good, creative idea. DJWinfo: The power of a citizen. . . . don't underestimate it.
Here is Obama's quote DJW cites:
Obama urged the people in the audience to get involved, and said 10 letters from constituents can have more influence on a politician than a $1,000 contribution.
"If bad legislation is being passed, a lot of times it's because nobody's paying attention," he said.
