Although 70% of Americans favor more domestic drilling, the leadership in the House and the Senate wont even let the matter come up for a vote. Perhaps they need a "bit" of persuasion.
Here's the idea: Send your Representative and Senators a small drill bit in the mail, with the message "drill already!" Send one each to Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid as well.

I'd recommend a very small bit (1/16" or smaller). It will make the point without alarming anybody and you can tape it to your letter and mail it with a first class stamp.
Pelosi and Reid are protecting their party members by not having them record a vote against domestic drilling just before an election. They need to be reminded who they work for. Let's drill the point home.
