You know I don't do this much. [Sep. 11th, 2005|08:27 pm]

Okay, so out in California, Governor Schwartzenegger has a phone system set up wherein people can, among other things, show support for certain bills. One of the bills currently in the system is the marriage equality act that he intends to veto. So, I don't know whether it'll change anything or not, but it's worth a shot, right? Especially since it's a computer phone system and you can dial in your support without ever having to talk to another person.

This is definitely worth a minute of your time and a phone call, everyone.

Follow these directions:
1. Call the Governor: 916-445-2841 (This number is listed at www.governor.ca.gov) (00-111-916-445-2841 internationally)
2. Push: 2 (voice your opinion on legislation)
3. Push: 1 (gender-neutral marriage bill - Senate Bill 849)
4. And push: 1 to support marriage equality

And pass this on to as many people as you can. If he's gonna veto this bill, let's make sure he knows how many people he's going to piss off by doing it.

Shouldn't such a thing be for california residents only?

One would think. Perhaps they realize that the impact of the bill extends beyond the state's borders!

Or maybe they didn't have a way of screening it well. Going by the caller's area code could prevent voters who aren't in the state at the moment from voicing their opinions... I dunno.

what if you could get your hands on one of those telemarketer machines and just keep calling that sequence over and over?

Re: telemarketers

Tempting! Though it might incite them to shut it down due to abuse. That's why I only called twice - once with each phone line I have.
