RNC Asks Me to Their Join Presidents Club Membership - This is My Reply to Reince

Reince Priebus
310 First Street S.E.
Washington, DC 20003

Dear “Friend”,

I’m not one to mince words either, so I will also get right to the point. The actions of the Republican National Committee, the Republican Party, and the Republican leadership, have not only caused my decline of your Presidents Club Membership invitation - but have also caused my withdrawal from the Republican Party as well.

Demographically speaking I am your perfect member. I am under the age of 35, have an above average annual household income, a steady career, own my home etc, and I am very active politically both with my time and money. I also fall into your most coveted “new member” segment as I registered Republican for the first time this year. I have become very active in the political process even having attended many local events and watched many live streams of caucuses across the country…

The problem Reince is that my increased involvement in the Republican Party this year actually worked to disenfranchise me rather than engage and retain me. I watched in amazement at how voters were treated during caucus meetings this summer. I watched in disgust at how party leadership flat out ignored their own rules to stifle the voices and votes of the people. I watched in anger at how leadership at the GOP Convention unseated duly elected delegates and again broke their own rules to censor one candidate’s name from nomination and voice from the auditorium. Does this really sound like a party anybody wants to be part of? Not me.

Simply put, the Republican Party has demonstrated that not only do you not want my input; you very clearly don’t want my vote either. I am sure you can understand how giving you my time or money is just laughable. Please cancel any membership I have to your party and remove me from any future mailings.

Sincerely,

Jeff O’Toole
American Voter

PS – Good luck without me.

the GOP or RNC I slip in a Ron Paul flyer and mail back.

This is one stellar letter!

This is one stellar letter! Wow. Kudos to you! Loved it!

Sounds like a good Op-Ed to me!

Suggestions?

I have written tons of letters to many editors and I have never ever even received a reply back on anything I have sent. Any thoughts or suggestions on how I can get them to publish? I always make sure I have my full name, address, and phone number listed. I always present my views in a professional manner. I always adhere to word count restrictions etc. What am I missing? Do you guys have better luck?

To the Editor

1. The shorter the letter, the more likely they will use it to fill a space. A cute two line comment fits.
2. Be timely. Two days later is way too late.
3. Steve Chapman from the Chicago Tribune advised me to keep the Libertarian wordplay to a minimum and don't sound derisive.

I'll tell you a secret because it is beyond the statute of limitations, and it worked very well.

I used to fax press releases for a state Libertarian Party before cheap automated faxing was available. Instead of faxing them to a list and hoping somebody would read them, I'd call the Editors one by one and ask them if they got my fax. Each Editor would rustle papers around and holler across the news room, "Did anybody get a fax from... Dave?", followed by a heartfelt, "Gee, I didn't get it, Dave." Can you resend it and I'll keep an eye out for it? I'd have it all cued up in the fax machine so I could send it right away! The likelihood of a release being printed went sky high because somebody held it in their hand, read it, and had a brief personal contact with someone. Dig?

Good luck, Jeff.

I got the same thing

The best part is it comes with a prepaid cardboard priority mailer. I haven't written my reply yet, but I will. I am a 35 year active member of the GOP that also sent in my change of party paperwork recently.

You know the presidents club

You know the presidents club is a scam right?
They send you a "presidents" card to make it seem legit.
All it does is put you in the spreadsheet for dope to siphon money from.

Yes.

Any time I get anything from the Republican Party in a self-addressed stamped envelope I send back a letter letting them know why they lost my support and future votes. I would encourage everyone to do the same so they understand the impact of their actions!!

Abbie Hoffman had this outasight idea.

..in "Steal this Book".

Affix the return postage envelope to the top of a paper wrapped brick, and drop it into your neighborhood mailbox so the return postage was really, really high.

P.S. This is probably a class XXX felony Federal violation kids. So DON"T DO IT! Unless you're wearing Groucho glasses, limping and using a mailbox in the next town over, of course.

P.P.S. Don't forget DNA tracking, drones and traffic cameras, and yes I was a lot of trouble when I was 14.

Or you could view this as an opportunity to consider. A lot of Paul supporters need to infiltrate republican functions with good ideas. Dr. Paul has been doing this.
