I'm filling out a political survey. My friends can now pick themselves up off the floor, as they know that in our house such things go immediately into the trash without passing Go. Political surveys, from either party, are inane nonesense with loaded questions on the order of, "You certainly don't support our evil opposition's murderous polices, do you?" and of which the true purpose is to solicit contributions. But this survey is different. Oh, it's inane, all right, with all of the above problems. But this survey, which is REGISTERED IN MY NAME ONLY and MUST BE ACCOUNTED FOR, which requires my immedate attention, and which assures me that my answers are important in the battle against the Obama Democrats' aggressive push to expand the federal government into every area of our lives and businesses; this survey from the National Republican Senatorial Committee that is sent only to a select few to represent ALL Republicans living in my voting district because it is cost-prohibitive to send a Survey to every registered Republican in my area; this survey is addressed to me.
It appears to have escaped the attention of the National Republican Senatorial Committee that I've been a registered Democrat for all 38 years of my voting life.Well, I commend them, inane questions or no, for reaching out to the opposition even at the cost of slighting the registered Republicans. I hope they enjoy my answers, which for some questions will indeed sound as if I were "one of them" and for others will leave them scratching their heads. But they're not getting the $11 contribution they ask for "to help cover the cost of tabulating and redistributing my Survey," even though $11 isn't out of line for a days' amusement.
