Just "unsubscribed from Campaign for Liberty

I have "replied" to C4L emails from John Tate numerous times without receiving an answer back so finally had to unsubscribe.
I guess they expect me to read their emails but they don't read ours. This is what I've sent:

Why I don't donate?

Mr. Tate,
So I have pondered why I donate to Ron Paul and other causes but not to Campaign for Liberty.

I have concluded what I knew all along. The problem is "I just don't know who you are."

At first all we ever got were emails begging for money. You seemed to have addressed that since all the complaints about it on DailyPaul. Again, most of us never donated because we just didn't know who you are or why we should trust you.

I was impressed last week to get an email from the Washington State Campaign for Liberty. The part that made me go "all right" was it began with their pictures and full contact information!

Mr. Tate, I have no idea who you are, what you look like, what you have done or how to contact you. Unlike Ron Paul.

I believe it to be the core of the problem. hope this helps.

Sincerely,
Paul West

P.S. Plus you don't read or don't respond to emails, like this one, so I will keep sending them until you do.

Click "unsubscribe" link at bottom of message

I unsubscribed from C4L a few weeks ago by clicking the link. When it asked for the reason for unsubscribing, I entered: Jesse Benton/Rand Paul.

We all want progress, but if you're on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

I was hoping to get asked for a reason but didn't.

It just went straight to "you have been unsubscribed"

Funny. I just replied to one myself. Usually I just ignore them but what gets me is their resemblance to typical Republican propaganda newsletters. They don't contain any information but just try to stir emotions that hopefully result in a donation. Ron's emails always said something. Tate's emails mention some piece of legislation that must be stopped but no mention or links explaining why or providing any details. My reply asked if he thought liberty minded people were sheeple. Guess I shouldn't expect a reply either.

"their resemblance to typical Republican propaganda newsletters"

Exactly why I never gave them any money. It just seemed so sleezy!

No response either!

I have a perfect website name for Dr. Paul, but no one responds! I need to talk with Dr. Paul to see if he wants it, because I will give it to him, if he wants it.

If anyone knows how I can reach him, let me know. Thanks. I may just write.

good work - I unsubscribed a

good work - I unsubscribed a long while ago. sorry but no one wants to be hit up for money like every 2 months. im not really sure what the C4L has actually accomplished so far.

More like every 2 days!

Good to see that other people are having the same problem with them.

i don't get it.

why downvote this?

keep trying!

Quite odd. My boyfriend replied to one of their emails (4-5 months ago) and recieved a response back.

Maybe you should print it in color

Maybe you should print it in color on really expensive and thick paper and send it first class - naw...make it an overnight. Following C$L's very own logic, that should get them to pay attention to you! Maybe you need a colored envelope too.

Poster board is a good one

Poster board is a good one that a co-worker of mine often uses. Just mail a large colorfully written poster board to top dogs so everyone knows about your complaint.

Bravo!
