I wanted to ask those who frequent this forum for their opinion on something. Here goes: I have been calling and sending emails to my elected representatives for a few years now. In almost every case, I receive a very polite response, but it's quite obvious to me that the response that I receive is nothing more than a chain letter. Regardless of what the subject is, or where I stand on it, the letter tells me what the official thinks about the issue, but it's insultingly obvious that he or she never even considered my opinion, the questions that I asked them, or the points that I raised.

So, my question to you all is: Do you think I should bother?

On the one hand, if several people like me called in, that might make a difference, but I have no way of knowing what every other citizen does.

On the other hand, it almost seems to be a complete waste of time.

In case you are wondering what I'm thinking: I'm leaning towards giving up on this process altogether.
