One can simply not be a humanist and be involved in politics, unless it serves the humanist principals. Last time I checked, we're starving the poor, gutting medical for the poor and disadvantaged, destroying water supplies and padding the pockets of corporations, french-kissing republican asses and padding the pockets of tea party psychotics.  No thank you. If one truly wants to make a difference, volunteer your time, hold a hungry child while she eats, give a hand up and be truly a compassionate human.

The important question is how to provide a real INCENTIVE for Congress
to change its ways (i. e. via blackmail, counter-lobbying, or other
forms of political extortion/manipulation).

No one does anything without an incentive (basic law of human nature).

So unless you have a new sack of candy to offer Congress, or can
credibly threaten to take away the ones it has, your trip is
pointless.

Sorry.
