No one actually reads the questions you submit to election campaigns. You know how each candidate's website has a place for you to ask questions? Well, I asked one - the same question at each of the Huckabee, McCain, and Romney websites.
The Huckabee and McCain questions were not answered. The Romney team sent me a form answer that generally talked about his position on abortion, but didn't actually answer my question. I wasn't satisfied, so I responded to the form letter, asking (again) for further clarification. Guess what came back?
The exact same form letter. Apparently their interns simply scan the mail for keywords.
Frankly, I'm disappointed. All the campaigns make such a big deal out of "listening" to the people, and they all say that they "welcome questions"...but it seems that they don't really mean it when it comes down to truly answering a real one.
I know, I know. They're politicians. What do I expect, eh?
