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.
PS – Good luck without me.
