I have been monitored by the NSA for years, for what I believe in which is no secret, I am anti tyrannical GOVT and corruption, and have been vocal about it on the internet at least since 2005.
You have nothing to fear but fear itself. . . . .
I implore you to write congress, . . . .
It will end I promise you that and the people are the only responsible ones for what happens to this world.
Whether it takes courage or fortitude to take down the Obama administration, really doesn't matter any more, what matters is if the people truly want to take care of themselves by saving themselves.

Guts? Because people are worried they will be "listed". Well, you're probably already on a list, at least one anyway with the rest of us. Start from the bottom up, let them know how you feel.
Wherefore, and to that end, I ask you to consider a strong and sustainable border. I ask for enforcement of immigration laws. I ask for a fair and just taxation system blind to politics and the whim of an individual. I ask for a strong national defense. And I ask for the enforcement of the fourth amendment to the Constitution that safeguards the right to be secure in our persons and our property. And furthermore, I ask for a good and just fiscal policy that will ensure the money of this great land in which we are so blessed to live.

I actually have stopped being an "armchair peace fighter" and have started to go actually talk to my elected people in office. While I do write emails, and they do get counted, getting in your car and driving to see your officials has a much greater impact then typing out a letter.
So instead of writing letters, try to leave your compound once and a while

This requires guts because of a post I saw the other day. The person said that because of the NSA spying he/she will no longer be posting because he/she was afraid.
The Senators and Congressman have a "rule of thumb" (true or not), it is also one used by major organizations.....
at least 500 other people have the same concern or idea for every person who has the "guts" to contact them. Why, because the majority of people are silent and just "stew".
So it takes guts just to be willing to post on ATS, most people will just read what we write, but not have the courage to say what they think.
Now that the NSA spying is "outed" and the Presidental "kill list" is public, then it really does take guts to declare you will stand up for freedom of speech.

Unless your letter is set to explode once the envelope is opened, I don't think it will have any impact.
I also get the feeling this is more about you being "brave" than anything else tbh.
