Guest post by Doug Overmyer
I received a Republican Platform Survey yesterday and was pleased that the Republican Party would consider my input in determining its planks.
I was puzzled that it appeared the survey would not be computer read. At the end of it, it asked a loaded question about voting Obama out of office and then asked if I would support doing so. The first box said essentially, "Yes, and here is my donation", the second box said, "No, but I will support the party with a donation." The third box said, "No, but here is $15 to help tabulate my survey." I then realized the survey was an elaborate and skillful fundraising letter, and that was all. My favorite part was the request to use my own stamp and save the Party some money. They must think we are idiots.
So I took a blank sheet of paper and wrote in big letters, "Stop killing Muslims. Promote peace and prosperity for all." Sealed it and am mailing it . . . Using THEIR postage.
