Don't Waste Your Time

Q: Does it do any good for us to write our Congressman about an issue?
A: I cringe when I read “write your congressman.” I think of Dracula being in charge of the blood bank. With very few exceptions, the “elected” politicians are completely amoral. They have a completely different mindset from the people they are supposed to represent. They have absolutely no concept of right or wrong.
To them, “right” is self-aggrandizement and how to stay in office. Unless and until we can view them as Machiavellians, we will be deceived about every political event.
Most politicians have one purpose: to milk the system for all it’s worth. They have total and complete contempt for the U.S. Constitution. Politicians have no value system, and the rule of law is a joke to them. Isn’t it time for us to stop believing in the Santa Claus of the two-party system?
Does it matter what labels devils wear? Washington is a cesspool of corrupt politicians. So writing your Congressman probably isn’t the most effective way to make a difference.
