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
goal and principles, regrettably we can no
longer endorse itís 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 we have
come to embrace. We do believe that when 2
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 we are not
contributing to the problem any more by
renewing our membership. There are other
organizations which offer discounts without
threatening our way of life or offending our
This presidential administration scares the
living daylights out of us. Not just for our
selves, but for our proud and bloodstained
heritage. 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, but now I find myself listening to
them. I donít have to agree with them to
appreciate the fear which spawned 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.

Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING???? Someone has
broken into our Ďhouseí invaded our home
without our invitation or consent.
This president has insisted we keep the
perpetrator in comfort and learn the perp
language sp we can communicate our reluctant
welcome to them.
I DONíT choose to welcome them.
I DONíT choose to support them.
I DONíT choose to educate them.
I DONíT 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 Ďplay the gameí to be welcomed and
others just have to break and enter to be
