We will endeavor to truncate most personal contact information (otherwise included in those digests and in your direct transmissions) from the display here for privacy reasons, though in the case of such information included in the body of your comments themselves, we may not catch some variant spellings.

We will give priority to published authors and those with their own websites, but all thoughtful submissions will be considered. Opinions expressed therein are not necessarily those of The People's Email Network.

Mission Statement:
Our democracy is only as strong as the participation of the people. Do your representatives only hear from you once every two or four years, assuming you vote at all? There are members of Congress who publicly bemoan the fact that they don't hear from more of their constituents more often. Our leaders are our generals in the political arena, but we are their troops. They can't do battle for us against opposing interests without being able to demonstrate our ongoing support. The People's Email Network is constructed to facilitate communication with our elected officials. By your participation you can establish that you are a voter who will call your government to account at each successive election. Your views do count. They will be heard. And most importantly, when you cast your votes in the section above, be sure to use the ground-breaking input functions of our website to also submit the email addresses of everyone you know. In this way we can together mobilize the entire country to speak in the loudest possible voice.
