    Have you ever written a Senator or Representative that does NOT represent you?

    Have you ever written a Senator or Representative that does NOT represent you?

    From another state or district or jurisdiction, I mean.

    I did once, a long time ago, but I normally don't as I don't see how they would give it much weight.

    Once in a while I will.Usually its just my elected officials.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I wrote to George Bush when I was in middle school. My friend and I also wrote to Allen West. We were in college in Florida. He hand wrote letters back to us! I am from NJ my friend was from Florida.

    I wrote to Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin, when he was everybody's demon...congratulating him on taking a stand and wishing him well.

    Nope. I've only written to mine when a few Army officials were trying to blackmail me. Just hearing about it helped them change their minds.

    I never wrote to anyone in office. My wife wrote a few people, although I doubt she ever wrote anyone not representing her.

    I have written both those who purported to represent me, and those who don't. I have received form replies, which prompted the conclusion on my part that I have never written an elected official that represents me.
