Wild Earth Guardians helps you tell your Congressfolk and your President to protect the Endangered Species Act from attacks against it. That may seem odd, since Congress itself has been conducting most of these attacks, but they're supposed to do our will, and I can find no evidence that the American people desire that endangered species should be allowed to go extinct, merely so that fossil fuel corporations can churn up the land further. Of course our Congressfolk don't put it like that: they either pretend they really, really like the Endangered Species Act as they're trying to gut it, or they pick the most obscure endangered species you can think of (never the Bald Eagle, which the ESA has of course rescued from annihilation as of 2007) and try to make you choose between that and cheap energy. Of course you know what that is, right? That's hostage-taking, and we don't do hostage-taking in America. When our leaders present us with such narrow choices, we tell them: find another way. Because that is the American way.
Meanwhile, if you've missed previous opportunities to tell your Congressfolk to pass S. 1959, which would permanently ban Congressfolk from ever becoming lobbyists after they leave office, then Demand Progress still helps you do that. "Public service should be for the public good," the lastest Demand Progress email missive tells me, "not an audition for a lavish lifestyle as a corporate lobbyist." Yes, if Congressfolk know they can make bajillions of dollars merely by pleasing the kind of people who might pay them out the wazoo when they leave Congress, then yes, they'll serve their actual constituents much less than their duty demands, if at all. And of course one can do tremendous harm by moving from public servant to well-paid lobbyist who prevents the public from getting more out of their public servants. And S. 1959's ban would not violate those Congresspersons' First Amendment rights, because the First Amendment guarantees your right to redress your grievances -- not the grievances of those who pay you more than you ever made in Congress.
