47. There are many ways
Withholding donations and writing polite but strong letters to the organizations telling them precisely why you're withholding them. In a similar vein, you could stop by your local representative's office and drop off a similar letter, letting those there know in polite, but firm terms why you're taking the action you are.

Writing to media.

Non-violent civil disobedience (I do like Dan Savage's idea of a couple a day protesting in front of the White House for one year).

At the moment, it seems drying up politicians' donor base and letting them know exactly why is having some effect.
