Is there such a thing?

Not to go into too much detail...such as how old I am, but let's just say I am looking ahead. Is there an organization comparable to the AARP that is a conservative group?

Your profile gives you away. You are between 42 and 46 most likely.

Considering that AARP is really just an insurance company that disguises itself as an activist organization, buy insurance privately and join individual groups that have programs that interest you (NRA, Good Sam, etc.)

60 Plus is often viewed as the conservative alternative to the American Association

Unfortunately I’m not sure that they are in existence any longer but it was my opinion that they were the ANTI-AARP!

I tried getting websites for USANext.org and all I see are links concerning stories about them. No actual website. Are they still around?

I think you've got that backwards. It's a wealthy socialist activist group that disguises itself as an insurance company. It's one of the most powerful "progressive" lobbying organizations in Washington.

I'm not sure how comparable it is to AARP, but if you or a family member are a Veteran, you might look into Veteran's Advantage.
The Veterans Advantage Card Benefits Program has been created to provide greater recognition, respect, and rewards for those who have served in the U.S. Military, including Veterans, Active Duty Military, National Guard and Reserves, and their family members.
As a member of Veterans Advantage, you and your family have access to a FREE Prescription Drug Card program. Simply download your Prescription Drug Card and receive savings of up to 75% at more than 50,000 national and regional pharmacies. You may create as many cards as you need. Participating pharmacies include the following: Kmart Pharmacy, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Publix, Winn-Dixie, CVS/pharmacy, and Albertsons, as well as thousands of independent pharmacies.
Plus discounts on travel, entertainment, home and office equipment.

Not sure you are making a joke or not. Either is fine. If it’s not, BTTT means Bump to the Top... in other words, by making a comment on this topic it bumped the thread to the top of the ongoing topics list...as it will when I hit “post” now.
