AARP’s fall from Grace

8 08 2010

You  don’t have to be a Senior or an AARP member to appreciate and cheer  for this letter:   
  Letter  from owners of Miller Farms Equine  Transport….validated by Snopes  AARP’s   fall from Grace

I find this  very  interesting reading, so let’s keep it going  if you agree.   It only takes a few days on  the Internet and this will  have reached 75% of the  public in the U.S.A.     Seniors need to stand up for what is  right, not  what the politicians want or big  Corporations  want. 
This letter was  sent to Mr. Rand who  is the Executive Director of  AARP.
Dear Mr.  Rand,      
        Recently   you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our  lapsed  membership in AARP by the requested date. I  know it is not  what you were looking for, but this  is the most honest  response I can give you. Our  gap in coverage is merely a  microscopic symptom of  the real problem, a deepening lack of  faith.    
        While   we have proudly maintained our membership for  several years  and have long admired the AARP goals  and principles,  regrettably, we can no longer  endorse it’s abdication of our  values. Your letter  specifically stated that we can count on  AARP to  speak up for our rights, yet the voice we hear is not   ours. Your offer of being kept up to date on  important issues  through DIVIDED WE FAIL presents  neither an impartial view nor  the one we have come  to embrace. We do believe that when two  parties  agree all the time on everything presented to them,   one is probably not necessary. But, when the  opinions and long  term goals are diametrically  opposed, the divorce is imminent.  This is the  philosophy which spawned our 200 years of   government.         

          Once   upon a time, we looked forward to being part of  the senior  demographic. We also looked to AARP to  provide certain  benefits and give our voice a  power we could not possibly hope  to achieve on our  own. AARP gave us a sense of belonging which  we no  longer enjoy. The Socialist politics practiced by the   Obama administration and empowered by AARP serves  only to  raise the blood pressure my medical  insurance strives to  contain. Clearly a conflict  of interest there!    
         We   do not understand the AARP posture, feel greatly  betrayed by  the guiding forces that we expected to  map out our senior  years and leave your ranks with  a great sense of regret. We  mitigate that  disappointment with the relief of knowing that  we  are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing  our  membership. There are numerous other  organizations which offer  discounts without  threatening our way of life or offending our   sensibilities.         
        This   Presidential Administration scares the living  daylights out of  us. Not just for ourselves, but  for our proud and bloodstained  heritage. But even  more importantly for our children and   grandchildren. Washington  has rendered Soylent Green a  prophetic cautionary  tale rather than a nonfiction scare  tactic. I have  never in my life endorsed any militant or  radical  groups, yet now I find myself listening to them. I   don’t have to agree with them to appreciate the  fear which  birthed their existence. Their  borderline insanity presents  little more than a  balance to the voice of the Socialist  mindset in  power. Perhaps I became American by a great stroke   of luck in some cosmic uterine lottery, but in my  adulthood I  CHOOSE to embrace it and nurture the  freedoms it represents as  well as the  responsibilities it requires.        
         Your   website generously offers us the opportunity to  receive all  communication in Spanish. ARE YOU  KIDDING??? Someone has  broken into our ‘house’,  invaded our home without our  invitation or  consent. The President has insisted we keep the   perpetrator in comfort and learn the perp language  so we can  communicate our reluctant welcome to  them.    
      I   DON’T choose to welcome   them.
      I  DON’T  choose to support them.       
      I   DON’T choose to educate them.       
      I   DON’T choose to medicate them, pay for their food  or clothing.    
      American   home invaders get arrested.       
      Please   explain to me why foreign lawbreakers can enjoy  privileges on  American soil that Americans do not  get?       
      Why   do some immigrants have to play the game to be  welcomed and  others only have to break & enter  to be welcomed?    
      We   travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over  this great  country, averaging over 10,000 miles a  month when he is out  there. He meets more people  than a politician on caffeine  overdose. Of all the  many good folks he enjoyed on this last  10,000  miles, this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the   current administration. One of us is out of touch  with  mainstream America  . Since our poll is conducted without  funding, I  have more faith in it than one which is power   driven.         

      We   have decided to forward this to everyone on our  mailing list,  and will encourage them to do the  same… With several hundred  in my address book, I  have every faith that the eventual  exponential  factor will make a credible statement to you.       

       I   am disappointed as hell.         
       I   am scared as hell.    
       I   am MAD as hell, and I’m NOT gonna take it   anymore!  

                   Walt   & Cyndy
