Got my $75 back from the RNC

Posted on 06/27/2007 6:45:25 PM PDT by WBL 1952

Called the RNC today and told them I wanted the last two years of contributions back. They said they would send the money I sent them just for the last 12 months - $75.

The first jerk hung up on me when I insisted I wanted at least two years $$ back so I had to call back.

I don't know if they are getting the message or not.

Good for you! I haven’t given recently, but told them to remove me from their rolls, and WHY. I have told them for two years that I will nolonger give them money to be distributed partially to RINOs. I only give to individual CONSERVATIVE candidates.

I've given money. When I give it, I generally relinquish the right to take it back. Just a thought.

Big bump. Bankrupting the pro-La Raza RNC is one way to get the message across. I will contact them too.

I’ve never thought of that. Did you tell them why you don’t want to support them anymore?

Great job. But I stopped giving to the RNC several years ago. Too bad, because I would enjoy asking for my moeny back.

Excellent burn!

(of course how long it takes to get it back may be another deal...)

Did they tell you if it would be in dollars or pesos?

“I don’t know if they are getting the message or not.”

First of all, you’re talking to people working the phones. Not only do they not get it, they don’t care really. Just taking calls.

I’m convinced that the politicians have positioned themselves to profit from this amenesty no matter what happens. Amnesty passes, the politicians get booted, maybe, but retire wealthy.

If you give it for a purpose, with a realistic right of an expected result, and feel cheated, you have every right to want it back, IMO.

That will make the country better!

They're probably laughing, saying "Wait til this guy finds out about paragraph 12,564 in the Immigration Bill which states that we can tap anyone's bank account as needed to help pay for LCD TV's for new citizens".

I’m assuming you are mad for a whole host of reasons (ME TOO) but especially over immigration. However have you seen this? A comparison between present and proposed imm. law.

You might consider that by showing Republicans that they lose our financial support when they vote liberal, THAT may make our country better. When they act like Democrats, why give to them?

Pardon for butting in like a socialist liberal and telling you what to do with your money, but I hope you find it in your heart to some time to re-direct that money to someone like DeMint.

I have done the same thing a couple times when they called, and several times by return mail when they sent a request for a donation. Always say I am supporting only real conservatives, NO RINOs!

You came back with an honest question. I’m sorry I don’t have a good answer. I’ve been following politics for fifty years and it just seems it gets worse. My personal favorite right now is Fred Thompson, but you know I’ve come to a conclusion I don’t care who you pick, pick anyone you want and say they got elected, name your dream team, they couldn’t change this government. A friend told me once we need to tear this system down and start over.

No doubt Jorge has calculated correctly that lost contributions from some 80 million middle-class Republicans like you and me will be more than made-up for by new contributions soon to be on the way from Hispanic ex-illegals that will surely rush to become the new Republican base.

If you think the RNC is doing such a fabulous job you can always pick up the slack for the rest of us and donate big bucks. Nobody’s stopping you.

I’d ask for my money back, but I stopped donating to the party a few years ago, and have no plans to ever do so again. I’ll donate to individual conservative candidates, but the Republican Party as a whole doesn’t deserve my hard-earned money.

Even if you don't get it back, it will certainly tell 'em that they won't get any more unless they BUCK UP and DO THE JOB WE THE PEOPLE HIRED THEM TO DO.

The loons seem to have taken over FR. Bush-bashing runs rampant, and far too many people are actively trying to destroy any support for the Republican party. It’s why I don’t participate anymore. Far too many comments here can be found at DU too.

Okay to your first part, but you got to promise I get to shoot everyone of the bastards in the ACLU. I also like what LadyNavyVet had to say. I stopped giving years ago. If I give anything in the future it will be metal pesos or virtual money just like GW’s virtual f—king fence.

I’d like to see a campaign started involving democrats and republicans who are fed up with the politicians and thier politics as usual where there would be a designated day where everybody goes to local election supervisors office and changes thier party affiliation to independent.

It just might send a strong enough message.

I’m just trying to figure out a way to send them a message without having to do it at the expense of an election itself.
