ezs note:  If you are represented by a Republican who serves on the House Armed Services Committee, it's time to let your voices of displeasure be heard. In addition,  if an opponent is running, it may be time to send a bit of money their way.  Hey, it may be only five or ten bucks, but the earlier the better.

ezs note:  Well... I have some mixed feelings about Mr. Patterson's thoughts here.  Granted, on occasion you will have lunatics like Louie Gohmert around, (my sympathies, first district of Texas)  but the majority of representatives - Democratic or Republican - will at least be willing to grant you a hearing.  It is far too solipsistic to automatically play the "blame the representative" game.  If you didn't vote in the last election, I'm sorry - it's YOUR fault.
