Bleeding Heartland: Legislators, show engaged citizens some common courtesy

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

During the caucus campaign, one of my pet peeves was the tendency for
Iowa voters to complain about all those phone calls and knocks on the
door. When volunteers care enough about the direction of this country
to advocate for their candidates, and all they are trying to do is
engage you politically, the least you can do is be courteous. People
in many other states would love to have as much influence over the
presidential nominating process as Iowans have. Similarly, politicians
who sought out the opportunity to represent Iowans in the state
legislature should not complain when engaged citizens contact them for
a cause they believe in.
