I call at least one politician every work day, using 5calls.org to get a rundown of an issue, a script, and the appropriate phone numbers.  For people like my Senators and Representative, I vary which office I call (DC and the two nearest my house) to spread out my impact a bit.  They don't have to get my address any more, I just give them my name and the know me.  I am polite, and when I get audibly angry about a subject, I make sure to say "I am not mad at you, it's not your fault, thank you for answering the phones."

When closing the call today, the receptionist ended the call with "talk to you soon."

Aww.

And, from the bottom of my immigrant heart unable to call any representative of a nation I live in, thank you.

HA! I'm picturing you sending them cookies and signing Christmas cards as "Respectfully".

Hehe. Nice! (Working phones at a representative's office right now would not be a job that I'd want.)
