After reviewing the scorecard, the next step is to contact our nation's leaders, whether they scored well on the HSUS scale or not. It's important for us to recognize those that match with the ideals of mainstream America verses those that sway to the hard-hitting lobbying efforts of HSUS.
Thanks to the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance for putting together letters to send to our Congress members, offering two options: one for a high HSUS score and one for a low score. If they scored high with HSUS, let them know you don't approve of their siding with an organization that wants to put farmers and ranchers out of business. If they scored low, thank them for standing by their constituents and ignoring the pressure of the well-oiled HSUS machine.
Take a look at your senators and representatives. How do they stack up against the HSUS grading system? Most importantly, will you take the next step and contact these folks? As always, let's compare notes in the comments section. In your opinion, who in Congress needs to go, and who should we continue to support?
