Democracy in Action
So, I’ve taken to occasionally sending emails to my representatives in Congress.
This has been disheartening, to say the very least, because in each case, I’ve gotten a response (via regular mail), that has FUCK-ALL TO DO WITH WHAT I EMAILED ABOUT.
Email to Sam Brownback about the Downing Street Memo? Letter in response thanking me for “contacting him about the reconstruction of the newly liberated Iraq.”
Email to Pat Roberts about Gitmo? Letter in response about the Patriot Act.
Email to Dennis Moore (my sole Democratic representative) about the new credit-card-company-sponsored bankrupcy laws? Well, OK….he actually responded on-topic: to tell me why HE FUCKING SUPPORTED IT.
