I\’ve had a day to think over the selection of Martinez as the RNC Chair. I\’ve thought it over and I\’ve come to a couple conclusions. As you are no doubt aware, I\’ve been withholding further donations to the RNC until you get real on the immigration issue. In fact every letter you\’ve sent me in the last years I\’ve returned with one of these, in place of the donation.
If this is the course of action you\’ve determined to take you may as well remove me permanantly from your list of financial supporters. Hell, remove me from your list of supporters. Any spare time or money I have obviously would be better invested in spanish lessons.
What really bothers me is that this is just one more in a long list of boneheaded decisions at all levels of the Republican Party. You could fill an online encylopedia with all of Bush\’s. Corruption and earmarks for anything appears to be the rule at the Congressional level. Mismanagement of finances seems to be the norm at the state level. Ignoring conservative principles in general seems to be the guideline at all levels.
All I ask is you give me something I can latch onto. Give me something so that I can at least fool myself into believing you care even a tiny bit what I think. Alas, you apparently care nothing for what the base thinks.
If the GOP is intent on moving away from it\’s base, that\’s certainly their right to make that decision. However, let it be known that, you will move without your base. We\’re sick of being taken for granted….again, and again, and again. The 2006 Elections were our \”2-week notice\”.
