A Citizen of the Republic

As a citizen of the republic I find myself unsure of the usual methods of effecting policy makers and planners. I find I don't have a practical way of knowing the standards of 'my representatives,' much less effecting them.

For example how can I keep informed what elected representatives are doing at the Federal level to promote scientific research appropriate to my health.

I feel ignorant and ineffectual. Is the tide so  against the existence of a democratic republic so that it is  best to forget the dream of having a functional republic and to go with the oligarchic flow?
