Not a Nation of Passive Citizenry

Thomas Jefferson once said, "Determine never to be idle...It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing." When he and his fellow Founding Fathers built this Nation, they imagined an active, not passive citzenry. They envisioned a government that would be responsive to the will of the people.

To realize this dream, America must have active and informed citizens. The National Write Your Congressman campaign aspires to achieve this goal. It aims to give Americans the opportunity to have his or her opinion reach those who need to hear it. Democracy is a participatory sport, and for America to win, the people must participate. -Congressman Jeb Hensarling, 5th District Texas
