"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 citizenry, and a government responsive to their needs, where the wishes and desires of every citizen would be taken into account.
To realize this dream of a government reactive to the will of the people, we must have a dynamic and responsive citizenry.
The National Write Your Congressman campaign aspires to achieve this goal, and aims to give every American the opportunity to have his or her opinion reach those who need to hear it." -Congressman Mark Steven Kirk, 10th District, Illinois
