How various interest groups have rated the performance of every Senator and Representative in the USA. Couldn't find any groups especially similar to us, but some of the ratings can be used by us with *inverted* values. The Christian Coalition's, for example.


This is THE source. Almost everything that gets said and voted in the US legislature is available on this searchable database. Takes some patience to wade through, though.


The email addresses of everyone in the US legislature.


One of the first and best treatises on management, strategy, and politics-- at an ftp site near you! Hint: ignore the footnotes and scholarly crap-- read the actual text.


A citizen's group that's trying to prevent net censorship by the US Government. Check out their online pledge that you can present to your elected representatives and demand they sign. It's phrased in a way that makes it embarassing to refuse, and a serious commitment for the politician if they do sign it.


One of many web-pages telling you how to publicise your web page effectively.

Info on political campaigning via email. This led me to find all the other stuff in this message.
