So I was thinking about a topic to write about to show that I am not trying to make this a one topic blog (obviously the anti B.O blog). So I was considering blogging about Michael Savage, and how though he is a hero to most conservatives yet I think he is a phony (God willing, I will post about that in the future)...BUT THANK YOU LORD, I found what just totally irked me from the other side of the agenda.
My husband got a letter in the mail today that he was so proud of. The letter was from the RNC (republican national committee) stating they had chosen him to represent area republicans. I say the following with a touch of irony at my husbands’ oft-shown naiveté. My husband said "Wow so I get to represent the 5 republicans that live in this area (we are in the city of NY - few registered republican here)" So I asked him if this is junk mail and if he wants me to toss it and he seriously and proudly said "No. I will send this in to represent my issues as a republican." Oh how I look back at him saying this and smile.
So I took a look at this questionnaire that they sent him - and I will quote a few questions
- Do you agree that we must stop illegal immigration? Yes No Maybe
- Should republicans fight for a balanced budget? Yes No Maybe
Should we do everything we can to stop Democrats from weakening border security? Yes No Maybe
(For the whole survey, see: http://www.nukefreezone.net/archives/000384.html)
But I noticed at the bottom of this survey it says:
Will you join the Republican National Committee by making a contribution today?
- Yes, I support the RNC and am enclosing my most generous contribution of:
- Other $_______
**A gift in this amount pays to mail 250 more CENSUS DOCUMENTS to registered Republicans.
- Yes, I support the RNC, but I am unable to participate at this time. However, I have enclosed $11 to cover the cost of tabulating this survey.
- No, I favor electing liberal Democrats over the next ten years.
From a psychological point of view - they just asked me 20 questions about safety, morality, and security which I felt proud of answering, and now they tell me that if I don’t write them a check I am betraying the safety, morality and security of this county. Shame on you NRC for being a big bully. Shame on republican political figures to allow this sort of fear technique to raise funds. I am as of this moment a disappointed party member.
