I got excited this morning when I noticed a ‘certified’ envelope on my couch under a bill I need to pay. I grabbed it. Typed across the front of the envelope were the words: “Do not throw away!” Intrigued, I opened it obediently. After all, the command was “Do not throw away!”
Inside, a letter from the Republican Party.
I’ve been selected to be a representative of my congressional district. Wow! I’ve been asked to fill out a survey. Oh, I’ve seen these before. I got one last fall from the National Rifle Association. That was fun to complete. Most of the questions were: “Don’t you agree…” and had to be answered with a resounding, “No, I don’t agree…”
I sit down, truly excited to give my opinion to the Republicans.
Do I vote regularly? Yes. Do I plan to vote in the fall election? Yes.
Do I plan to vote for: Obama, the Republican candidate, someone else? I plan to vote for Obama.
Do you approve of Obama? Yes, I approve.
What is most important to your family or community right now? Select three. Education, Over-development, Waste of resources. I had to write in the last two.
Which party do you think will better address… and then a long list of such things as environmental issues, foreign policy, taxes, healthcare, education, etc. The three choices: Republican, Democrat, Other.
And my favorites: Do you approve or disapprove of the Democratic Congress? Approve.
Do you approve or disapprove of the Republican Congress? Disapprove.
