Another brave telemarketer for the Republican National Committee (RNC) just gave up. We have NOT made a contribution to the RNC in years, if ever, and we have repeatedly and politely asked to be removed from your telephone list. Your callers never listen.
For the umpteenth time, my dollar cannot give the Republicans in Congress any more power than they already have. All the power in the nation rests in the representative votes cast in the House and Senate. If a GOP official is already in office he or she already has a vote. No amount of money can provide a bigger or more weighty vote.
If you want my attention RNC and GOP elected officials, use your vote well today. Why are you concerned about the election next year? If members of the GOP won’t vote their principles today why would I want more of them later? If they stink today more of the same will only smell worse.
First you wanted to take control of the House of Representatives. You said that would change everything. Okay, you got it. Have you stood on conservative constitutional principles? No. What’s the problem? You have a vote. It’s the same vote whether you own the whole House or if you’re the last Republican member with a seat in Congress.
Figure out what you stand for then stand up and be heard. If you don’t really stand for anything then stand down and be quiet. Any member of the GOP who spoke against Mr. Cruz and Mr. Lee is part of the problem, not the solution. You don’t have to agree on strategic specifics, but to denigrate someone who is standing up for a principle proves there is a lesson you need to learn.
Finally, there is a simple truth that you don’t seem to understand. In the last presidential election there is NOTHING Mr. Obama could have done horrible enough to shift many votes to Mr. Romney. The reverse is also true. When voters can’t stomach their own candidate they stay home. They don’t vote for the opposition. Think about it.
Get your own house in order. Until you do QUIT calling me. GOP members of Congress already have a vote. Use it well or it won’t matter if anyone in Congress has an (R) after his or her name. We’re not buying what you’re selling.
Sincerely and sadly,
