The DGA needs to know where YOU stand!
My apologies upfront as this is less an "essay" and more of a rant about those annoying fundraising emails I am STILL receiving after almost a year and a half of "unsubscribing". Sometimes it feels like an insidious game of whack-a-mole where I'm left holding a rubber chicken in my hand each time another group gets my email address and starts sending me this hyperbolic agit-prop.
Exhibit One: Paid for by Democratic Governors Association
(I wish I could do the flashing graphics justice in this one but I'm hastily doing a copy and paste from my iPad. The verbiage will have to be illustrative enough)
Trump is making reckless and dangerous decisions that threaten our democracy and the stability of the entire planet.
Meanwhile, the tempest of scandal surrounding him intensifies every day. The Russia investigation is turning up CRIMINALS. He still REFUSES to release his taxes as he profits off the presidency. And he can't get through a day without lying to the American people or ignoring reality altogether.
We've never seen a presidency this dangerous. We're fighting back, but we need to know where 87 Democrats from 10011 stand:
Do you trust Donald Trump?
YES / NO
I have no idea what it was about this particular line of bullshit that ticked me off so. But it did. So I replied back to them.
To Whom It May Concern:
As a former Democrat who is still waiting for their vote in the 2016 California primary to be counted, I feel compelled to inform you that my concerns about CRIMINALS in positions of power within our government are not limited to Republicans.
In fact, it is painfully clear to me that BOTH PARTIES are afflicted with the disease of corruption in their obscene quest to amass power, influence and money through whatever illegal means necessary. Courtesy of my tax dollars.
So, good luck in the upcoming election. I'll be sure to inform my family, neighbors, and friends that they should only vote for the establishment candidates the corrupt DNC endorses if they want their votes counted at all.
I hope your need to find out what this former Democrat thinks about the issues has been satisfied, as well as your compulsion to send me any more absurdly partisan emails.
A constituent who is no longer willing to listen to your bullshit
I'm not sure if they'll find this kind of constituent feedback helpful, but at least they know where I stand.
