I don't have to respond, right? First time I've ever gotten a letter from them.

Not that I'm crazy about them these days. They were also asking for money.

They send me stuff from time to time, I throw it in the trash. Fuck the GOP.

I received the same tripe via email. If they want my support at a party level, as opposed to a candidate level, they will cease trying to force carpet bag bums like Scott Brown on me.

Why anyone would slave themselves to a particular party is beyond me. Thank goodness Virginia is a open primary state.

I'd mail it back to them with a note about how Boehner has fucked you out of your desire to be a Republican.

I mail it back to them with "Not another fucking penny until you grow some balls" scrawled across it...

This is the appropriate response.

RNC gets no more support from me.

How about this:

To whom it may concern:

I have been an American voter for 11 years now. In almost every election, I have voted Republican. However, due to the massive failures of the Republican Party to win crucial elections, such as elections to defeat quite possibly the most liberal and reckless President this country has ever seen, Barack Obama, and the severe lack of leadership at the national level, I will not be "affirming" party affiliation nor do I wish to send you any money. From here on, I will be voting for candidates and not parties.

Respectfully,
Deej86.

They won't give a shit. The letter just an attempt to get your money. I would bet the NRA uses the same marketing agency.

I sent something similar. It went a little more in depth and mentioned specific candidates I was unhappy with and why. I also mentioned candidates I was happy with and why. Then I told them I voted against one of the candidates in my "dislike" column, which helped a democrat (pro-gun, blue dog at least) get elected. I ended with something similar to yours and mentioned that I no longer considered myself Republican, rather I was conservative.

ETA: As mentioned, they probably won't read it and they don't give a shit. Maybe, just maybe, one of the few people that DOES give a shit takes all the "Y'all suck" messages to the right person. It's kinda like the big bang - the possibility that everything aligns correctly at the right time to do anything worthwhile is so remote it's almost statistically impossible. Almost.

Wipe your ass with it and mail it back.

Wipe your ass with the letter, then send it back them.

Because that's what they're doing to you.

It isn't just their failure to win elections, it is their failure and unwillingness to follow up when they do win.

Got the same letter. Put a reply in it that stated "Boot Boehner as Speaker, then we'll talk."
Link Posted: 1/21/2015 9:58:54 AM EST
I affirm my independent creds most vociferously.

I feel the same way about the repubs as I do the dems.

Neither side has put forth any candidates that represent me or my values.

Put a note in it saying no money for RINOs, but here is a brick for you. Send me more mail and I’ll send you more bricks. I have lots of bricks. Then tape it to a brick and drop it in the mail.

Fireplace. That junk mail is good for helping to start fires. Ask me how I know.
Link Posted: 1/21/2015 10:16:33 AM EST
Went thru that years ago-sent them nasty comments back a bunch of times and they finally got the hint.

Changed from Republican to Independent a few years back as well.Quite a few people in my area have done the same thing.

I still support individual candidates,but fuck the Party.

Since Romney,Bush,and Christie seem to be in the running,it's obvious that it's not working and we aren't going to see any real change (for the better).
