Dear Michael Steele and the Republican National Committee,
First I’d like to thank you profusely for the recent survey I received in the mail. It has helped me make a decision that has been weighing on my mind. As you so aptly pointed out, it is an:
“OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN PARTY DOCUMENT – DO NOT DESTROY”
Oh My God….I’ve received an OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN PARTY DOCUMENT. Yes, the survey is registered to me! My name is on it and everything. So it must be official. (rolls eyes) Oh wait…hold on…further reading indicates that I’m addressed in the ‘letter’ that accompanies the survey, as: Dear Friend. Okay then.
First of all, you say that my answers on the survey will represent ALL Republican constituents living within my Congressional District. WRONG. My answers (were I to give you any) would be MINE alone…not those of anyone else.
Both the survey and the letter are a laugh. I’ve never seen such a biased survey or letter of information. How can you, in good faith, make such grey, fuzzy statements and expound on them as you have here. Take this question for instance:
3. Do you agree with Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi’s efforts to impose massive tax hikes on the American people?
Well now, there’s certainly no generalization there, is there? (rolls eyes again) Or how about this one?
7. Do you support the Democrats’ efforts to create a massive new federal government bureaucracy that would be run by unionized government employees and would have complete control of your health care costs and choices?
Are you kidding me? Who are you trying to brain wash here? Do you think we cannot read? Do you actually think we cannot study health care proposals & how they would affect us? How can you, in good faith, spend money on this piece of garbage you call an official survey and use it in an attempt to say it’s the wishes of the constituents? Truly unbelievable. If you actually wanted input from constituents regarding policies, wouldn’t it be a good idea to ask about those? Instead of simply filling this survey and letter with Democrat Bashing? Is that what this party has come to?
And the kicker: Your bold plea for money. And even if I cannot pledge any support this year, you’d really appreciate it if I would chip in $11. to help pay for the survey. *blink* Unbelievable.
You know, Michael Steele, I’ve never been a straight ticket voter. I have always felt that I researched the candidates and voted for those that I felt would best serve the public’s interest. And even though I have been a registered Republican for many years, I see the party’s goals turning fuzzy…just like those mugs up there. That’s why, after the last eight years of Bush, I voted for Barack Obama & with his win, felt that there was hope for our nation.
So, your official survey has given me the extra push that I needed to make my decision.
I’ll be changing my party affiliation as soon as possible.
