Just Sent $3 to Obama Campaign

Since participating at the Republican caucus, I've been added to Mitt Romney's mailing list multiple times. Nearly weekly I'm shipped a large package with a glossy 8x10 photo of Mitt by a barn. Yesterday I received the same Romney mail three times in the same day's mail. I must be costing the campaign $10/week or more.

So out of sense of fairness, I've opted into the BHO campaign too. I'm already being shipped a bumper sticker. Why should only Romney have his stuff sent to landfill?

Obviously, it is my sense of political helplessness that has driven me to such petty actions.

I've Gotten That Same Package

Makes me wonder, did Romney pay to have a barn brought to MA for the photo shoot?

When I get Mitt mail

if the envelope is pre-paid I send it back with a very short note inside that says: The “voting the lesser of two evils” is a failed policy and I can not pass off to the next generations this debt and look them in the eye and say it is not my fault, I voted. It is our fault as we gave up on principles and allowed ourselves to be lulled into their game. I for one will no longer do that. I will vote, but it will not be for Romeny or Obama.

That is all I put. I am sure they get all kinds of crap, so I keep it short and sweet and hope if even just one person thinks about it, it is a start. No doubt it goes quickly in the garbage.

Fill with pebbles/pennies

If the envelope is labeled "postage paid by sender", I'll pack it full of heavy junk to increase the return costs.

I haven't done this for Mitt or BHO yet, I'll have to open more of the packages and get the envelope.

I am still in stitches from this comment.

Do what we do:

Inside every envelope from the Romney people is a postage-paid return envelope.

We stick Ron Paul stickers on the outside of it, and drop a couple of cards inside, and drop it back into the mailbox. Fun!

I wish the Romney campaign

I wish the Romney campaign would actually try to use their money for a good purpose...

Petty sure, but fair and balanced

And I think it costs them more than $3 to process the donation, so you actually made them lose money!

Yuo are quite right....

... my mailbox is flooded with Romney material. It goes into the recycling bin, unopened.

Yep, two pieces today are

Yep, two pieces today are staring up at me, unopened in my recycling bin...wait they joined two from yesterday, so that' makes 4. 8 Mitt Romney eyes stating up at me along with that smarmy, enigmatic smile. Yech! One of the pitfalls of registering Republican to vote for RP in the primary.

Primaries...what a total JOKE on the American people...but not a funny joke.
