This is the response I got from one of my state senators when I wrote regarding 45's crimes and lack of fitness for the job.
The republican "leadership" in this country is fucking USELESS. I am not surprised, but I am disgusted.

"Thank you for contacting me about President Trump. I appreciate hearing from you and am grateful for the opportunity to respond.

I believe the American people elected President Trump because they want change in Washington. They want us to rein in federal spending and reduce our national debt so we do not mortgage our children's future. Voters also sent the message that they need relief from excessive government regulation. We must promote a level playing field and institute commonsense, pro-job growth solutions.

I also recognize that our country is very divided at this time. I hope that President Trump and leaders in Congress will make it a priority to find areas of common ground where we can work together to help all Americans regardless of their race, sex, religion, or where they live. I am ready to work with the president and my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to get the best results for Georgia and the country.

Double talk and did not answer question.


To start what about the trillion dollar debt they added to the national debt pay for the tax cut. This guy is a typical republican out for the wealthy dam the rest.He makes me sick.


Reduce national debt.... By having record deficits??? Lol


Actually the American people didn't vote him in, it was antiquated process involving the electoral college.

I actually emailed a response to him, and that was in it, but it came back as being unable to be delivered.
I didn't feel like going back to his website and doing another. It wouldn't matter to him anyway.


I don't care about a response. I write any way & I watch how Senator Ron Johnson votes & speaks. He will follow McConnell's orders. He is secure until 2022 when he will become a lobbyist. No justice. No peace.

They should be prevented from becoming lobbist for at least 6years or two terms.


Yep. Here is the reply I got from Pat Toomey when I wrote about trump's treason after Helsinki.

Thank you for contacting me about Russian aggression around the world. I appreciate hearing from you.

I have long said Russia is no friend of the United States. Russian President Vladimir Putin actively seeks to undermine American values, institutions, and our leadership throughout the world. In addition, American intelligence agencies have confirmed, unequivocally, that Russian actors, almost certainly at the direction of the Russian government and Vladimir Putin, meddled in our 2016 presidential election. I find it very troubling that President Trump has not more forcefully condemned Putin's hostile actions against the United States and our allies. Regardless, I am committed to ensuring that our armed forces, intelligence community, and homeland security agencies have the resources and tools they need to fulfill their missions, including in pushing back against Russia and protecting the integrity of our elections.

I have also supported strong sanctions against Russia for its aggression in Europe, the Middle East, and cyberspace. As a member of the Senate Ukraine Caucus, I was pleased to support the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA) (Public Law 115-44), which codified and strengthened existing sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. This legislation also authorized new sanctions on Russia for its role in cyberattacks, and placed mandatory sanctions on Iran, Russia, and North Korea for their activities threatening both the security of the United States and global stability.

I was also pleased that, on April 6, 2018, the Treasury Department utilized CAATSA and other authorities to issue sanctions on seven Russian oligarchs, 12 Russian companies, and 17 Russian government officials. This action came shortly after sanctions were imposed against five Russian entities and 19 individuals for U.S. election meddling and other cyber-related activity, including an ongoing attack on America's critical infrastructure. In addition, on July 24, 2018, Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) and I sent a letter to the Treasury Department urging that sanctions be imposed immediately on the 12 indicted Russian military intelligence officers for their involvement in cyber operations to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Whether it is aggression in Ukraine, meddling in the U.S. elections, supporting the Iranian and Syrian regimes, flagrant human rights abuses, or any other in a long list of aggressive actions, it is clear that Vladimir Putin is a bad actor and his government should be treated as an international pariah. In December 2012, for example, I supported legislation (Public Law 112-208) known as the Sergei Magnitsky Act, which allowed our government to impose sanctions on Russian human rights abuses. More recently, the Senate approved a resolution that I introduced condemning the violence and persecution of gay men in the Russian state of Chechnya (S.Res. 211) on October 30, 2017. Shortly thereafter, the Treasury Department used the Sergei Magnitsky Act to sanction the head of the Chechen republic on December 20, 2017 for his role the aforementioned abuses. I am also an original cosponsor of bill pending in the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, S.2455, which supports enhanced cybersecurity cooperation between the
U.S. and Ukraine. I have also stated unequivocally that Russia should be disqualified from rejoining the G7 until its malign behavior ends.

Mr. Putin insists that the Russian government has nothing to do with meddling in our elections. In that case, he should not object to the Russian hackers who have been indicted by the Department of Justice from being brought to the United States for prosecution. Since Putin's cooperation is unlikely, the United States should impose tough new sanctions on Russia. Our country must not stand by and allow Putin and his cronies to bully the United States, our allies, and our friends across the globe. Congress must remain vigilant against Russia and its aggressive behavior in the future.

Thank you again for your correspondence. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future if I can be of assistance.

U.S. Senator, Pennsylvania

Can't believe anything they say, can ya?


That is fucking un fucking believable. Rein in the national debt?!?!?!?!?!?? WTF the gop has us mortgaged to the hilt!!
I hope there is someone more responsible running against him. It's Georgia KKGator forget about it (spoof on the last line from the movie Chinatown, one of my all time favorite movies).

That's some sorry ass shit right there. 😟.

Course my congressman is not much better, I do have 2 dems for senators and the gop in WA State hate both of them, couldn't be because they're girls😉.


only one that seems to be able to speak off-script is Trump.

I got myself added to the email list for my state rep and have seen similar responses. I'm left to guess that something as vacuous as what you received is what passes as satisfactory for a supporter of that candidate. I doubt that they or even a staffer reads the emails when they express something contrary to the rep's position and then they merely send a generic letter as response like this one. At times like this, they're probably equally swamped with messages from their supporters as they are with letters from less supportive constituents wanting to know what the fuck is wrong with them.


Well that really didn't address the issues now did it?

Nope, sure didn't. Not to mention, he repeated the same LIES as 45.

Even though it's only been a couple of months, I'm pretty sure my efforts to bring about a change in the party are doomed to failure.
These assholes are too entrenched in their dogma, just like believers.
They are never going to change, and I can't keep beating my head against the wall.
The only reasonable thing to do is go back to being an Independent.

I absolutely hate failing.

@KKGator This has been my worry from the start. How do we enact the change we want to see?

No easy answers. But at least you've tried!
