I did it and received this response:
I appreciate your contacting me and bringing your concerns to my attention. The issues you raised about an individual's right to pursue recreation on the Internet certainly warrant serious consideration. As you may be aware, HR 4411 and HR 4777 seek to outlaw gambling games online. These bills are currently pending action by the House Judiciary Committee. I want to assure you that I will give full consideration to all the issues you raised if these bills are presented for a vote on the House floor.
Thank you for your correspondence. I hope you will continue to share your interests and opinions on the vital issues facing Congress.
I know that things like this have little value, Mr. Clay will vote the way his fundraiser chair says he should, but other than staging a million poker player march I dunno what I can do. I guess its time to look for a place in Canada. Isn't it true that these bills DON'T outlaw gambling online, but outlaw CERTAIN gambling online? I thought I was told that there would be exemptions to Horse Racing and maybe something else. I guess I have to dig up the text and read them.
Dear you dumb plutocrats: Do you relize you can legalize it and tax it.Dear you dumb casino operators: Did you know that people you gamble online are more likely to take a trip to a casino. Plus if it were legal you could extend your relationship to the customer via your online gambling instance. If you outlaw it fewer people will gamble and fewer people will go to your hotels and bricks and mortar casinos.
Dear you dumb citizens: Do you realize that your personal liberties are being eroded on a daily basis?
