Of the Republican National Committee. But for some strange reason, *they* think I've been a member ... they think I've been a member long enough that they should contact me and try to get me to "re-up" my membership. I ignored the first "notice" they sent me ... must've ignored the second one, too.
...But it was the THIRD one that got my attention ... yeah, the THIRD NOTICE came in a RED ENVELOPE! Yeah, they mean business. They're serious! The red paper tells me that! Actually, you can see how very serious they were here:
Maybe you didn't know this about me, but I often get a bit ticked off when people try to get me to pay for things for which I don't owe. I find it really irritating and downright wrong. So ... I wrote the following letter today.
Republican National Committee
Office of Membership Service
310 First Street Southeast
Washington DC 20003
To Whom It May Concern:
I recently received your “Final Notice” to renew my membership to the Republican National Committee. I find it awfully interesting that I should be getting a “Final Notice” invoice for something I never requested.
You see, I am not now, nor have I ever been, a “member” of the Republican National Committee. I do not want to be a member of the Republican National Committee now. I do not plan to be a member of the Republican National Committee ever!
One time … one single solitary time … I contributed money. (I believe it may have been when Michael Steele took over running the place – and look what a race-card playing disappointment he turned out to be! I thought he was beyond that!) One donation and now I’m some faceless “member” to whom a “Final Notice” invoice is sent?
Your people call me on probably a monthly basis to ask for money. I live in Oregon, one of the highest unemployment and taxation states in the Union, and your people call me for money all the time. I keep telling them I’m not contributing and ask that they remove my name from their calling lists. I’m just about to start suing for y’all violating my request – that’s legal for me to do, considering how the Do Not Call legislation was written – I think it’s a $500 fine the first time. I’ll keep a log and then submit you folks with a bill … and then I’ll send you a “Final Notice” invoice.
Maybe then you’d get the idea!
I’ve voted Republican since I first registered. I agree with the Party on most everything, but have found that being a Conservative doesn’t seem to matter much with you folks. The RNC doesn’t represent me. We get pooh-poohed by the national-level Republicans all the time.
Well, I’ve had it. Please, take me off your calling list. Please, take me of your mailing list. I’m being nice about it this time.
Please don’t make me change my party affiliation to get away from your constant money grubbing calls and “Final Notice” invoices for money I Don’t Owe You!.
So ... I wrote this letter ... I enjoyed writing it ... then I stuffed it with their "invoice" in their postage-paid envelope and sent it off to them.
Don't get me wrong. I really don't have any delusions that someone at the Republican National Committee is actually going to read my letter ... but at least they had to pay the postage.
