Boebert: ‘Show Up’ Locally if You Want Change Nationally May 12, 2021 | Truth & Liberty Staff Average people may not think they can make an impact on culture or politics when it seems like the federal government and mainstream media is against biblical values.But one strong Christian conservative from Rifle, Colorado, made her voice heard in her own community, and she now represents the state’s 3rd District in Congress.“That is the most important thing to do,” said U.S. Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-CO, of getting involved in government at the local level. “And the first thing I would say is show up – that’s exactly what I did.”Rep. Boebert joined the Truth & Liberty livecast to discuss a number of issues, including how to act locally and see change nationally.Taking a StandRep. Boebert was not always interested in politics, but after working her way from welfare recipient to small-business owner, she began to be concerned about the values that mattered most to her. She decided to get involved at every opportunity.“I started showing up to meetings and letting my voice be heard,” said Rep. Boebert. “I didn’t always know all the details to speak to, but I knew what I wanted to see and the direction – what I wanted to speak against and for.”When she heard an anti-Second Amendment presidential candidate was making a stop in Colorado, she drove three hours to be there. The video of her debate with Beto O’Rourke on gun rights soon went viral, and gave then-citizen Boebert her first national exposure.In 2020, she ran a grassroots campaign against a five-term incumbent and was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives as a Christian conservative Republican.Keeping Lawmakers AccountableThe best way to impact legislation and make your voice heard on important issues is to call your lawmakers’ offices directly.“I know that those phone calls, they are discussed in congressional offices,” said Rep. Boebert. “I hear about the phone calls that take place – we take tallies of the topics that come in – and we respond to those.”Concerned citizens are encouraged to call the offices of Democrat Sens. Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema and tell them to deliver on their promises to protect the Senate filibuster. Without the filibuster to stop pieces of radical Democrat legislation from passing the Senate and going to the White House, bills like the For the People Act (federalizing elections) would be signed into law.According to Rep. Boebert, telephone calls will get the attention of lawmakers.“You may not talk to the representative or the senator directly yourself, but I promise you their staff is communicating those phone calls that are coming through,” she said.Learn MoreTo learn more about Rep.
