This letter to the AARP says it all. I like the way this lady thinks!!! 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
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 it's 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
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
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 perpetrator
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!
