Guess what I got in the mail!

I got another letter from the Republican National Committee today! Not an email like the dozens Mike Duncan, its chairman has sent, asking me for a donation, but an actual form letter from him telling me just how speshul I am. And as proof that I'm so speshul, the letter even asks me to fill out an enclosed questionnaire.

Not everybody is getting this questionnaire, neither, "because it is cost prohibitive for the Republican Party to print and mail an OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN PARTY CENSUS to each and every one of the 62,000,000 Republicans nationwide"!

Because I'm so speschul (And you're not!) MY "answers will represent the views and opinions of all Republican voters living in (my) voting district"!

Well dang. I guess the results they received from the speshul folk they sent last year's BLUEPRINT for the Republican Party for the next ten years, the RNC may have learned a thing or two or three.

This time, not only aren't they asking me to send my completed questionnaire back within a specific time frame, of the 23 policy statements I'm asked to Agree or Disagree with or mark as Undecided, this time they even included two involving illegal immigration!

HOMELAND SECURITY MEASURES

4. Should we do everything we can to stop Democrats from repealing critical border and port security legislation?

DOMESTIC ISSUES

1. Do you agree that we must stop illegal immigration?
Not that my answers are going to count. In fact, they're not going to be included at all.

It's not that I'm not going to complete my GOP Survey and mail it back in the self-addressed, postage-paid envelope. I am.

My answers won't be counted because I'm not going to include the $11 the RNC says is required "to cover the cost of tabulating (my) survey."

I'm guessing that when the RNC has been asking for donations, instead of the dinero they need, they've gotten too many of these:

Too much blather about stopping illegal immigration with absolutely no substance of a lasting nature to show for it, just because Mike Duncan seems to have become the "face" of the RNC instead of its General Chairman, Mel Martinez (R FL), nothing's changed..

They're about to get another one.

Ha! They won't send anything out without asking for money!

Love the peso, by the way. ;)

No, Pam. That was in a different line with suggested amounts. This second option was new and in my HUMBLE opinion a baaad mistake.

In other words, unless I send the $11, my opinion is worthless. Then, there's the third RNC support option I'm offered: "No, I favor electing liberal Democrats over the next ten years."

Snide and snarky? And that's only ONE section. The tone throughout is like . . . James Carville has started moonlighting for the RNC!

Not that I've ever supported the RNC to start with, choosing to pick what candidates I support instead.

I'm THIS close to changing my party affiliation to Independent or libertarian. The only thing keeping me from doing that right now is the upcoming primaries.

I got the same letter and it pissed me off to the point that I may not support ANY GOP candidate in Florida or for the White House. I am pissed at Florida's GOP for supporting Kathern , "Vote for me or you will commit a sin" Harris and I am pissed at the national GOP for even thinking about supporting the prez and his amnesty bill. Then this insulting letter topped it off..

I'll continue voting for the candidate I believe will do the best job, no matter their party.

Between Nelson (D) and Harris (R), I cast my vote for Belinda Noah who ended up getting one percent of the vote. Running as a Republican (the par-TAY wouldn't give her ANY support preferring Harris), Noah from the start of her campaign (unlike Harris) was pro FairTax and took a tough stance against illegal immigration.

Noah's one percent may not sound like much, but running against two money machines my read is that it was a statement by voters (like me) on just how dissatisfied they are with being treated like idiots by the DNC and RNC alike.

This letter didn't top things off for me. Neither did support for the amnesty bill, although that didn't help matters any.

No, my disgust with the RNC began before the election last November, with the letters Hubby -- who a year before had changed his party affiliation to Independent -- kept receiving from the RNC saying that they still hadn't received the money he'd promised over the telephone to donate to them, and they needed the money badly to pay their bills so it was about time he paid up.

I'm paraphrasing, of course, but not by much.

Like I said, I'm holding on 'til the primaries.
