Goodbye to AARP

This letter to the AARP says it all.  It is a must read  regardless of
your age.  Some people just make sense in what they say.  This lady
certainly does.  Please forward this to everyone on  your contact list.
This was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of  AARP.

Dear Mr. Rand,
Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our
lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. I know it is not what
you were looking for, but this is the most honest response I can
give you. Our gap in coverage is merely a microscopic symptom of the
real problem, a deepening lack of faith.

While we have proudly maintained our membership for several years and
have long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no
longer endorse its abdication of our values. Your letter specifically
stated that we can count on AARP to speak up for our rights, yet the
voice we hear is
not ours. Your offer of being kept up to date on important issues
through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents neither an impartial view nor the one
we have come to embrace. We do believe that when two parties agree all
the time on everything presented to them, one is probably not
necessary. But, when the
opinions and long term goals are diametrically opposed, the divorce is
imminent. This is the philosophy which spawned our 200 years of
government.

Once upon a time, we looked forward to being part of the
senior demographic. We also looked to AARP to provide certain benefits
and give our voice a power we could not possibly hope to achieve on our
own. AARP gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy. The
Socialist politics practiced by the Obama administration and empowered
by AARP serves only to raise the blood pressure my medical insurance
strives to contain. Clearly a conflict of interest there!

We do not understand the AARP posture, feel greatly betrayed by
the guiding forces whom we expected to map out our senior years and
leave your ranks with a great sense of regret. We mitigate that
disappointment with the relief of knowing that we are not contributing
to the problem anymore by
renewing our membership. There are numerous other organizations which
offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our
sensibilities.

This Presidential Administration scares the living daylights out of
us. Not just for ourselves, but for our proud and
bloodstained heritage, but even more importantly for our children and
grandchildren.  Washington has rendered Soylent Green a prophetic
cautionary tale rather than a nonfiction scare
tactic. I have never in my life endorsed any militant or radical
groups, yet now I find myself listening to them. I don’t have to agree
with them to appreciate the fear which birthed their existence. Their
borderline insanity presents little more than a balance to the voice of
the Socialist mindset in power. Perhaps I became American by a  great
stroke of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery, but in my adulthood I
CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the freedoms it represents as well as
the responsibilities it requires.

Your website generously offers us the opportunity to receive
all communication in Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING??? Someone has broken
into our ‘house’, invaded our home without our invitation or consent.
The President has insisted we keep the perpetrator in comfort and learn
the perp language so we can
communicate our reluctant welcome to them.
I DON’T choose to welcome them.
I DON’T choose to support them.
I DON’T choose to educate them.
I DON’T choose to medicate them, pay for their food or clothing.
American home invaders get arrested. Please explain to me why foreign
lawbreakers can enjoy privileges on American soil that Americans do not
get?  Why do some immigrants have to play the game to be welcomed and
others only have to break & enter to be welcomed?

We travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over this great
country, averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there. He
meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose. Of all the
many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles, this trip yielded
only ONE supporter of the
current administration.  One of us is out of touch with
mainstream America. Since our poll is conducted without funding, I have
more faith in it than one which is power driven.

We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list, and
will encourage them to do the same. With several hundred in my address
book, I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make
a credible statement to you..
I am disappointed as hell.
I am scared as hell.
I am MAD as hell, and I’m NOT gonna take it anymore!
