Here's a link I've been meaning to put up for a long time.

U.S. Senate

I'm gonna put it up in the permanent bar to the left, but for now I wanna draw attention to it and explain why it's important. (This is basic civics, but hardly any schools teach that anymore so sorry if I sound condescending) Mid term elections in this country don't draw enough voters to the polls. I guess I can see how voting for senators is not as exciting as voting for a President, but it's just as important. Say we get a Democratic president this year (please please please...) That president promises us stuff during the election, and we want him or her to deliver that stuff. Right now we have a republican majority in the house and the senate tho. That generally means it's alot harder for a democratic president to get any of their laws passed. With how partisan the debate is now it means it'll be damn near impossible to get any democratic bills passed. That sucks. It sucks for everybody who voted for those changes when they chose a president.That's why those voters have to vote for their senators too-and pay attention. This website is the official site of the senate. It tells you how the senators from your state voted on everything that comes in front of them. This way you can keep an eye on them, reelect them if you think they do a good job, or boot their asses if you think that they don't, or if they don't even show up to vote at all-also you can email them and bitch-(I do that alot cuz one of my senators is Rick Santorum). So use it-abuse it, and tell those lazy ass senators to do their jobs-after all-you're their boss! And if you're not old enough to vote yet-you will be and they know it so email them anyway.
