Last Saturday morning, my phone rang. When I picked it up, the woman on the other end announced that she was calling on behalf of the Republican National Committee (RNC) and asking for donations.

I immediately had an answer for her, and it wasn’t the one she hoped to hear. I told her that a few months ago, as the Senate Gang of 8 was secretly negotiating with pro-amnesty and mass immigration lobbying groups, I made a decision to cut off contact with the Republican Party and that I would not be donating any more money until the amnesty threat was gone. I also let her know that I was  angry at the Republican Party’s support of amnesty, and if an amnesty law was  enacted, they would never get another thin dime from me.

While we are up against very powerful special interests who are arrogantly throwing their money around, conducting media campaigns and buying off the politicians, we also possess something that the Democrat and Republican Parties, as well as other political organizations, treasure dearly, our personal information.

There is a simple way that we can all leverage our own valuable personal information to fight back: contact your party headquarters, as well as the Senate and congressional arms to tell them you want all of your personal information permanently removed from their databases and for them to never contact you again. It is critical to explain that the reason for your actions is that you oppose Republican and Democrat Party support for amnesty.

Here’s the contact information:

  1. Republican National Committee (RNC): 310 First Street, SE Washington, DC 20003.  Phone (202) 863-8500 / Fax (202) 863-8654.
  2. National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC): 425 2nd Street NE Washington, DC 20002.  Phone (202) 675-6000 / Fax (202) 675-4730.
  3. National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC): 320 First Street SE
    Washington, DC 20003.  Phone (202) 479-7000
  4. Democratic National Committee (DNC): 430 South Capitol St. SE Washington, DC 20003.  Phone (202) 863-8000 or (877) 336-7200 / Fax(202) 863-8082.
  5. Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee (DSCC): 120 Maryland Ave. NE Washington, DC 20002.  Phone (202) 224-2447 / Fax (202) 969-0354.
  6. Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC): 430 S. Capitol Street, S.E. Washington, D.C. 20003.  Phone  (202) 863-1500

Phone calls, faxes, and written correspondence are best. Email contact should only be considered in addition to contact by phone, fax, or letter, since these offices often get inundated by email and treat it as a low priority. Also, any harassing phone calls you may have received from party fundraisers should be reported as such.

Don’t limit yourself to calling party headquarters. Call or fax your Senators and House Representatives, and let them know that you know that amnesty and massive visa and green card expansion is a threat to our great country.

A member look-up can be found at the website Contacting the Congress, and the main Capitol switchboard number is (202) 224-3121. Talking points are included in the articles and blogs at Californians for Population Stabilization. 

Additionally, information you obtain through national media reports, talk radio, newspaper stories, etc., that relates to the actions and positions of a particular congressional member(s) can be very powerful. For example, if I hear a talk radio personality criticize a pro-amnesty Senator, I call his office to personally notify him of the media criticism. Politicians hate bad press, and it makes them crazy to know that people are listening. Similarly, I strongly praise those who are standing up for our side, to encourage more of the same.

With determination and resolve, we can make our voices heard. Better yet, we can send the politicos into full panic mode by melting those phone lines and Internet links.
