After many, many days of being a pinned thread in the Lounge forum, I don't seem to be able to find Rick Munroe's post about all of us contacting our senators about the proposed Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.


As I stated at the time, I KNEW, that in the case of my "esteemed" Republican senators from Virginia, that it would be a TOTAL waste of time and effort! I haven't yet received a response from Senator Warner, but I'm fairly sure it will ECHO Senator Allen's response. Any one else gotten a reply yet? I'm posting my response below:


"Thank you for contacting me regarding the issue of marriage and a

Federal Marriage Amendment. I appreciate your concerns and want my

position to be very clear.


As a United States Senator, I will support and protect the

traditional, common sense definition of marriage in law as only a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. While it was my hope that the existing Defense of Marriage Act could accomplish this goal, I believe that recent events and future court decisions indicate that a constitutional amendment is needed to protect the rights of the people in the States to define the institution of marriage.


To that end, I will vote for a Marriage Amendment to the U.S.

Constitution when the Senate considers one in July.


Thank you again for taking the time to contact me. If you would like

to receive an e-mail newsletter about my initiatives to improve America, please sign up on my website (http://allen.senate.gov). It is an honor to serve you in the United States Senate, and I look forward to working with you to make Virginia and America a better place to live, learn, work and raise a family.


With warm regards, I remain




Senator George Allen

I believe that there is at least one lobbying organization, where if you notify them that you have contacted your senators, then they can use the count of how many people have done so in their arguments.
