Let's make some noise about this! Let's use the power of alternative media before they take it away from us!
The Honorable (full name)
United States (Senate or House of Representatives)
Dear (proper name, i.e., Senator Smith)
My name is XXXXXX and I am a member of your constituency. I am a registered voter and am active at every election. It is my understanding that your purpose in Washington is to represent the wishes of those who elect you.
First, I'd like to tell you how disappointed I am in the passing of the NDAA. I have a thorough understanding of the legislation and I feel as though this is a black mark against the Constitution. The reason I am writing you today is to tell you my thoughts on Bill H.R. 3261, the Stop Online Piracy Act. After contemplation of this document, I feel that it is misnamed as a way to manipulate the people into believing that it is for our own good. This bill is clearly an attack on the First Amendment and intended to police the internet. This bill is designed specifically to legalize government censorship.
I urge you to vote AGAINST the passing of the SOPA bill. Please be assured that I will be checking the roll call on this vote and plan to be very vocal in my support of those who vote against it, or, alternatively, in my criticism of those who vote for it.
I sincerely thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I hope that I can count on you to protect my rights under the Constitution, and that I can continue to support you as a voter from your electorate.
