Government of the People

This morning I emailed the governor with a few concerns as to a bill that awaits his signature. I was as polite as I could be and explained things completely. I even asked my mother to proof it. I returned to the computer this afternoon and found a reply from his office that went as follows:

Thank you for contacting my office. It is an honor and a privilege for me to serve as your Governor, and I appreciate hearing from you.

Because your ideas and concerns are very important to me, your correspondence is being reviewed by my constituent services staff to ensure that your issue is addressed and that you receive the assistance you may need.

Again, thank you for your correspondence.

Basically it means that there is hardly any chance of my little voice being heard and possibly stopping a pending disaster. Below the above words was a notice in all caps asking for me to not reply to that message. The interesting thing is my governor's email address began with this: no-reply.
