Business Reply Mail - As straw pollSubmitted by IMissLiberty on Sun, 01/13/2008 - 16:05
Do you get those "surveys" that the Republican Party sends out? For some reason I've been on their mailing list for years, even though I've only just registered Republican for the first time.
They're dishonest in saying they want my opinion. They really wanted money. What I like about their so-called surveys is the pre-paid postage envelope that comes with it.
I used to write "I'm a Libertarian" on it and send it back, but this time I put "Support Ron Paul." I also made all the usual corrections to the "survey" such as suggesting they cut foreign spending as well as domestic.
Ron Paul is correct that it is a simple matter to change the minds of politicians. They read the numbers, and a growing number of people unwilling to go with the program will make a difference.
Both Republicans and Democrats can win my votes on a race by race and candidate by candidate (individual!) basis. I'm happy to work with the libertarians among them. I am a Libertarian from birth to death so I will be re-registering on February 6th, but since they said it was "critical" that I respond, and the postage was pre-paid, I was glad to help them out.
