A Republican Survey! You mean they care what we think?

A Republican Party Census Document was given to me yesterday for my review and recommendation.

The survey is composed of 26 questions. Two questions ask about your past voting. The entire “survey” appears to be simply a fundraising activity for the G.O.P.

Here are some of the questions:

“Should we stop the Democrats from cutting funding for our intelligence agencies or bringing back Clinton-era restrictions on inter-agency communications?”
Yes – No – Undecided.

“Should President Bush’s successful income and capital gains tax cuts be made permanent?”
Yes – No – Undecided.

“Should we make sure President Bush’s judicial nominees receive fair hearings and up or down votes in the Senate even when Democrats threaten a filibuster?”
Yes – No – Undecided.

The “survey” mentions Democrats or the Democratic party in seven questions. “Clinton-era” is mentioned in two questions. Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid are mentioned in one question. The “survey” basically portrays the Democratic party as evildoers and the Republican party as the answer to all the worlds problems!

My favorite question though is the last one:

“Will you join the Republican National Committee by making a contribution today?”
Yes - $500 $250 $100 $50 $35 $25 $Other
Yes - $11 to cover the cost of tabulating the survey
No – “I favor electing liberal Democrats over the next ten years.”

The accompanying letter asks for money three times on a four page letter. The letter also makes it sound like the end of the world will occur if Hillary or Barrack are elected President. But we can prevent that, simply by sending money to the Republicans! I guess they don't really care what we think, they just want our money.

Do people really fall for this? Are people that blind?
