I emailed Senator Graham urging him to oppose any and all gun control legislation.

His response doesn't even mention gun control. I bet no one even read my email.

Don’t feel bad. I’ve gotten form letter responses from emails and straight to voicemail boxes, which all appear to be full, for phone calls.

Wow! That looks exactly like the response from him when I wrote an email to him regarding Harriet Miers!

Anyways it’s good to keep sending emails. They may not respond but they do keep tabs on where the public stands on any given issue.

At the very least, it’s a poll.

I hear he’s busy investigating South Carolina public rest areas in the evening. Specifically the one’s with graffiti that say, “meet here at x time.”

I got a personal reply from Fred Thompson, but that is the only Senator I have had who spent the time trying to remain in touch. Until I was gerrymandered out, the House Reps here have also been good for that. Commie Cohen, on the other hand...

This is obviously how they spend their time in DC, in meetings deciding how to not communicate with the people they represent.

These people are too high in the food chain to be bothered.

I really believe the first thing a politician does when they enter their new office in Washington ,is get some staffer to write them a generic answer they can send out when they get mail.Any mail not only emails.

They decide what to do by speaking with the other members of the fraternity and listening to the older members telling them what to do. They never read email nor do they read the bills they vote on. In fact IMO they do nothing except sit on their ass and cast a vote once in a while. They vote how the party tells them to vote.

I get form letters too. I wonder whether my emails to my Congressman and Senators ever get read.

That’s typical of contacting Sen. Graham. I have tried to contact his office over the past several years a few times...and have talked to others this is the way he usually responds. Form letter or a polite but the Senator is interested in your opinion...... answer to a phone call. Don’t worry hopefully we will be able to replace Grahamnesty in 2014!!!

I’ve gotten similar responses. some aid hits the wrong button and sends a canned email on the wrong subject.

I think they all use the same templates to prepare their responses. Probably prepared for them by party hacks. The language sounds the sale or similar

There was a congressman who had about 10 standard paragraphs. The first paragraph was always the same standard BS thanking the writer for writing, blah blah blah. Then for the rest of the letter the staffer was supposed to use one or more of the other paragraphs, depending on the issue raised, or request made by the constituent. Once, the staffer apparently used the wrong paragraph(s), the recipient became suspicious and ultimately there was a big stink. I believe the congressman later lost re-election.

I use the website at congress.org to email my reps and always get a reply.

You are more likely to receive a personal response from Li Lo than from your alleged representative in the swamps of D.C. How many people they each have on staff? They are heads of medium size corporations, and their jobs as CEOs is to show their faces, read speeches written by others, and collect money for re-election. They don’t write the legislation and they don’t read it, and they don’t write “personal” letters to the suckers out there. Your Senator is not your friend any more than Sylvester Stallone is your friend. Get real!

Must be mail dump Friday.

I got mail from McCaskill (About our efforts to free Jon Hammer) months after I had written her for help.

Got a letter from Billy Long who said he would vote for the Silver Star Service Banner IF it came to a vote. (It was made permanent in the House years ago)

In other words folks, we HAVE no representation.

That is what is boils down to.

In spite of the high volume of mail I receive daily, I look forward to reviewing your correspondence and providing a personal response as soon as possible.

I always get one of these automated responses before I get a response on the issue. YMMV
