I got the same form letter. RNC got their first contribution from me when they announced Sarah Palin. Unless they show me they are serious about the issues that matter to me, and in advancing candidates that are truly conservative, they will not get another penny.
The sales pitch is, if you send us money, we'll come up with great candidates! I am sorry, but it works exactly the other way around. Why should I fill the coffers for them to potentially support candidates that I cannot, in good conscience, vote for?
The RNC seems to want a TARP-like bailout of their own, with no subsequent accountability to its donors. Maybe if the funds dry up they will start to get the message.
They called me on my cellphone, and I said: You seem to have made a mistake. I'm not a Republican, I'm a conservative.
The GOP has NOT responded to my emails making suggestions about their direction. Nothing - nada - zilch. Guess they already know which way they are going and don't need advice or direction from conservatives.
I got a “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN”? from the RNC.
I got one too....I laughed my butt off.
