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 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 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

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 disa ppointed as hell.
I am scared as hell.
I am MAD as hell, and I’m NOT gonna take it anymore!
