Republican Mischief and Hypocrisy

Boy, it just goes to show you that you can’t trust ANY political party in this nation!  Before you keep reading this post, you must first read this article from the Associated Press.  Please read the entire thing and then report back.

Oh thy hypocrisy of the Republican Party!  They really want to say that the Democrats are being deceitful and then they pull a stunt like this?  I understand that Michael Steele wants to be a more hands-on chairman of the RNC but this, coupled with that ridiculous GOP purity test, is going way too far.  The idea of this is dumb enough, especially in this digital age where you could have just made a survey on the internet for people to go to and fill out as they pleased, but the manner in which this stupid idea was carried out reeks of corruption.

First off, the envelopes for these “questionnaires” are labeled: “Do Not Destroy, Official Document.  2010Congressional District Census” Then, when you open it, the letter itself looks like this:

Mr. Daryl Morton, the 8th Congressional District Chair for the Democratic Party of Georgia snapped this picture of the letter he received.  Notice all the things that look shady here.  We have a Census tracking number, a bolded letterhead that looks suspiciously like the Census Bureau logo and a due date.  Why would they put a “please respond by” date on something as simple as a questionnaire?

The GOP can say all they want about this not being an attempt to fool people but the proof is pretty obvious.  They are calling this a census in the same year we are supposed to have a national census that is MANDITORY!  Americans are all expecting a letter from the Census Bureau this year that they MUST complete.  Many Americans will open this and send it in thinking that it is the real thing.  Sure, they may be too stupid to actually read it and find out that it’s a hoax, but doesn’t that just add fuel to the fact that such a scenario is exactly what the GOP wants to happen?

Like I’ve said before, corruption and dishonesty run rampant on BOTH sides of the isle.  The Republican Party is every bit as guilty of engaging in shady practices as the Democrats are and instances like this proves that.  This is exactly why we need to move away from the party system entirely.  It’s time to put away the high school rivalry between these two factions and start electing candidates that will represent the people, not their party.

    I’ll tell you what is most disturbing about this, and its not that they are trying to fool people into thinking its a mandatory census. It’s the way the questions are asked. This is EXACTLY what I mean when I say that top Republicans are waging an ideological war through hegemony.

    “Do you think the record trillion dollar federal deficit the Democrats are creating with their out-of-control spending is going to have disastrous consequences for our nation?”

    The question begs the answer. Any question that can be turned into a biased sentence without adding words, is a horrible question. For example, take off the first 3 words that make this a question and what does it say? “The record trillion dollar federal deficit the Democrats are creating with their out-of-control spending is going to have disastrous consequences for our nation.” That is an unsubstantiated claim made with no cited sources or evidence and at its very best it is speculative.

    This is an obvious attempt at influencing a ton of people. They dont want statistics. They want others to believe that Obama will ruin America. And if enough people believe that he will, then he will. Repulsive.

    On a positive note, thanks for your willingness to call them out!

      Thanks for your reply. I agree whole-heartedly about their tactics and I find them despicable. I agree with their message about spending in Washington but this is a shady and underhanded way of trying to spread that message. This is one of those rare chances I get to prove to my readers (those that agree with me and those that don’t) that I am NOT a Republican. Just because I agree with them more often than the Democrats doesn’t mean that I’m a party member or ever will be. They have their obvious faults just like the left and this is one of those times where a fault is blatantly obvious.

    I don’t entirely disagree with the point you’re trying to make. I would point this out though, this is not a phenomenon begun this year to coincide with the census. I’ve been getting this crap from the RNC, the RNSC and other various branches of the Republican party for two years now. It ALWAYS comes in a form like that, with a tracking number, with instructions not to destroy it as it is part of a census they are taking, with the serial number being assigned to me. I’m fairly certain the word Census has even been in the title in several if not all of them. In other words, it may be problematic this year, but I do not believe it was a deliberate attempt at deception to take advantage of the National Census. On the other hand I routinely ignore these idiotic pieces of paper, or send them back with a note stating that until the Republican party begins to uphold the Constitution I won’t be sending them any money to process my survey or for any other purpose.

    Folks in this country need to learn to read things they get in the mail before sending them in, and to be aware of what they are doing. The RNC is just as manipulative in its advertising as the DNC, that’s absolutely true. But it isn’t fraud, and it is the saps in this country that fall for the idea that an official looking survey somehow makes their opinion important.

    Noah was also correct in that the questions in the surveys for both sides are completely biased in the way that they are posed, which was one further reason I won’t send them money to process this crap. I often agree with what the surveys have to say, but there is not way to disagree with them without sounding like you support big government spending and the entire Democrat agenda. If they really want an accurate read on what the voters are looking for perhaps they should just ask simple, non-leading questions and take the time to read the answers. Heck, I’ll even write the questionnaire for them.

      LOVE your response! If this has been going on for years now I’ve not heard about it but that doesn’t make it any better. I’m also sure that SOMEONE at the RNC would have had the smarts to put a “THIS IS NOT AN OFFICIAL CENSUS BUREAU FORM” on the envelope somewhere instead of making it look MORE like an official document. I’m glad that you don’t financially (or otherwise) support the Republican Party because NEITHER party deserves our support.

    i wish i could say that i was surprised, but i’m not.

    my opinion is that both parties are more concerned with warring with each other, instead of what they should be doing, and should be abolished.
