Yesterday I received a package from the Republican Party advising me that the 2016 Presidential Election is going to take a massive grassroots effort across America. I was pleasantly surprised they has a plan beyond destroying Donald Trump.
Enclosed was my official “2015 CONGRESSIONAL CENSUS DOCUMENT registered CODE #J15PM057B”
“Mr. Brewer, because of your high level of political involvement, your personal input on the questions in your census document is critical to our nation’s future.
This is the first time our Party has taken a Congressional District census on such a major scale and I truly hope we can count on you taking part in this all-important project. Tour completing and returning your 2015 Census Document is central to our ability to devise a winning Republican strategy in your area as we prepare for the all-important Presidential election.”
I felt so important I immediately stopped reading the full four page letter and sat down and completed filling out my Census Document. I have done this at least ten times in my 85 years. Then I scanned the remaining four page letter that was signed by Reince Priebus, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. To make sure I don’t slant anything let me share the following two paragraphs below his signature which explain the real reason I got the letter.
P.S. “Mr. Brewer, as a registered participant in our 2015 Census Project, you are on the front line of the battle to shape Republican priorities for our nation as we work to better target our message and devise a winning strategy for our candidates in Texas. Today I am counting on your help to ensure we meet that goal.
So please, help the RNC begin implementing the critical operations we need for the 2016 Presidential election by completing your 2015 CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT CENSUS AND RETURNING IT WITH A GENEROUS CONTRIBUTION of $25, $59, $100, $250, $500 or even $1,000 in the enclosed envelope”. Guess what I had to pay the postage. They do accept credit cards.
The document was impressive and the right questions were included to inform them of my opinions. Unfortunately they do not give you a way to express your feelings and make specific comments about anything. Anyone who knows me is well aware of my political positions and my opinions about nearly any subject you would choose to discuss. As they did not give me a chance to voice my true position, I included the following letter with my Census. This made me feel like I had really tried hard to be honest.

Dear Mr. Priebus
I just received your letter and I will take the time to fill it out and pay for postage so you can throw it in the trash. I am 85 and it is criminal to watch the GOP commit suicide every Presidential election. You don’t have one Republican Party you have two and the enemy is yourself. I stopped donating to any political party as no one represents common sense anymore.
The GOP Congress is leaderless and will never accomplish anything as long as term limits are not the law. Politics has become a career just in my lifetime and no one represents my conservative views any more. Money is the only way to get elected and that is wrong and you and the rest in power know it. All voters are not Democrats and stupid.
Sadly I no longer get to vote for anyone any more as no one is a leader in either party. People like me have only two choices in voting, we vote against a candidate and often neither one running as both are useless lawyers who can’t make a living in Law. So we just skip casting a vote period. I know I have wasted my time but I feel better trying to wake you up.
Wow, I feel better sharing this with my friends and posting this on WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. I would feel a lot better if you would both comment, pro or con, on my blog and share this with everyone you can.
