Meet and talk to your congressperson?

Postby Epicurus » Sat Jul 19, 2014 11:36 am

A local congressional candidate responded to a comment as follows:

The advantage of our current system is that each citizen has a specific representative who is supposed to be representing them in Washington – an individual who they can meet and talk to and complain to and vote for or against every two years. It is a good design, and one which has held up fairly well over time.


I am constantly amazed at the nonsense we believe because we don't question the myths we were taught in school.

Meet and talk to? LOL. My congresswoman won’t even send me a form-letter reply to my concerns. That’s hardly representation.

Aside from the fact that I disagree with almost everything she does and purports to believe, how could she possibly meet and talk to, or even send an email response to, me and almost 700,000 other people?

Who does she have time for? Military contractors and her other campaign contributors.
