Been getting a lot of these damn things lately in the snailmail pile. PLEASE TAKE TIME TO ANSWER OUR OPINION SURVEY. POLL FOR DEMOCRATIC PARTY SUPPORTERS.
I’m totally a pushover for any organization that wants my opinion. I think everyone should have my opinion and I’m very much inclined to give it, with or without solicitation, so for an organization that I’m a part of to try to get in touch with what the rank and file participants think should be their priorities is going to meet with my approval.
But if you’re only doing this to butter me up before hitting me up for additional contributions, you’re going to have to do better than this, this is fucking insulting:
The United States government has assigned marijuana the same drug classification as heroin. Do you agree with this classification? (yeah, I joined NORML because I couldn’t find a form for joining Timothy Leary’s International Foundation for Internal Freedom, and I think marijuana and heroin should be assigned to the same category and legalize them both. Gimme a break)
**The GOP candidates have all made it clear they would slash taxes for the wealthy first-and-foremost. Who do you believe most needs a tax cut during this recovery? Middle Class Americans / The Wealthy / No One ** (Ooh, I bet you get a lot of folks saying ‘No One’. That’s the spirit, shoulder to the wheel, right?)
How important is it to regain Democratic majorities in Congress and put another Democrat in the Oval Office in 2016? (Hmm, I dunno as how that’s the strategy that I’d go with. I can see some advantages but have you really given thought to how much we could get done with a Republican majority remaining in Congress and a Republican taking over the Oval Office instead? I mean, think about it long and carefully…)
(not to point specifically at the Democratic Party as if they were the only ones doing this, but they’ll do as a blatant example)
