I just called Obama’s campaign office, and they were very polite. Here’s how you can do it, it takes three minutes.
- Call the campaign office: (866) 675-2008
- Press 6
- A person will pick up. Express to them your opinion on Obama’s FISA bill position. Be polite, they are our friends! Here’s a suggested script:
“Hi, I would like to express my displeasure with Obama’s position on the FISA bill, is this the right person to speak with?
Okay cool. So, I’m a big Obama supporter, and a contributer [optionally mention how much you’ve contributed]. I understand that Obama has to compromise on certain things, but this bill is particularly horrible. The telco immunity part in particular — it’s a law which allows politicians and their collaborators to break the law. It’s corruption.
Usually I don’t get excited about any candidate, and then I just vote for the lesser of two evils. I am an Obama supporter and contributor not because he’s the lesser of two evils, but because he has given me hope that he is a different kind of politician.
I feel that Obama should at least vote against, and preferably filibuster, the law.
<okay, I will pass that along.>
Thank you [M’am/Sir].”
