Politicians are stupid
You have to write to them and tell them not to do stupid things. They probably won't listen, but you're obligated to try.
In 2001, I told my reps 'Pay UN dues. UN good.' A few months later I told them 'RIAA bad.' About the same time, I wrote to say 'SSSCA bad', so they renamed it.
One of my former reps voted against the USAP AT RIOT Act, so I wrote to say 'You good', which was a refreshing change. Then in 2005 I wrote other reps to let them know that 'Nuclear war with Democrats bad'.
Of course, the actual letters tend to be a few hundred words, not just two words.
