i see on some threads ppl hoping many will write a congressman, or some other official. maybe i'm just cynical, but how many of you really believe that step will do anything at all? i certainly don't think my voice would be heard at all--i think our govt is now on its own trail, has been for some time, and what the public says/wants means nothing to them. they get their huge pensions, they get to run up tabs for vacations i can't even imagine, live in extravagance, and if i should need something or write them for any type of assistance, i am certain all i'd get is, at best, a form letter saying they received my email/letter, and gosh, they're looking into it right away! (but nothing really happens). basicly getting the 'pipe down, you bother me' attitude. the older i get, the more i am believing our govt is only out to line their pockets and us little ppl are nothing more than a way to do that. am i alone here?
