    I feel like writing to elected officials (except for those like Bernie Sanders) is like writing to your abuser and asking them to stop hurting you.  I fear the truth is too many elected officials don't have the conscious to stop it and their lack of empathy (being able to put yourself in another's shoes) prevents them from stopping the pillaging.

    There are a elected officials that may know and empathize with the people, but I'm sure even they know they are helpless against an overwhelming majority.  I think at this point we need to start recreating a new system, with checks and balances, because this one is broken beyond repair.
