Letter from the Lawmaker.

Every time I receive a letter back from my Congressional representatives, I am launched further into a bleak emotional spiral. My politics diverge from the current generation in power. Worse still, they diverge from my own demographic!

The latter is a non-issue for the moment. I'm in the statistical minority who bother to vote.

Vain hopes of my viewpoint shifting enough to be more congruent with the dominant political force are seductive. Elitist feelings of belonging to an affluent minority group also encourage me. Toying with the idea of emigration is the most enjoyable mental diversion.

At least I'm not a racial minority?
