Subject: Stop Sending Me AARP Membership Application Packages
Dear AARP Executives & Representatives:
Stop sending me Membership packages, I don’t want to be a member of an organization that does not look out for my best interest, but instead, side with the Republican social programs cutting hawks, in the name of preventing to tax the wealthy to help balance the outstanding national debt that the Bush Administration created by raging to un-paid wars in the middle east, when President Clinton left office, we we’re in a surplus, but President Bush took the surplus and spent it on national security based on lies and deception and let the rich and organizations get away with not paying their fair share of taxes, now the Republican Congress cut hawks want to balance the budget, on the backs of the elderly, children, the poor, the working poor , the middle class, and the disabled.
You did the ultimate betrayal to your members and future members, by opening the door to cuts on security benefits, raising the retirement age, and reducing cash benefits, and reduced annual COLA payouts, you sold out the highest bidders for your own greedy self-interest and self-fish motives as well, if you sleep with dogs, you sure will catch flees, meaning if you in any way agree with the Republicans on beginning the process of ultimately privatizing Medicare and the Social Security safety net for present and future seniors, then you’re in total agreement with them in my opinion.
You can try and spin this any way you please, people are not stupid to this, you have turned on your own loyal membership for in some shape or form of long-term financial gain, We don’t need to support and organization that’s not on the up and up and not advocating for us seniors 100% with no room for compromise in cuts with the Republican social program cut hawks.
The best way to show how your members are upset and displeased with your decision to back and give political coverage to politicians wanting to change or cut Social Security and Medicare benefits on the backs of Seniors and the Disabled is hitting you financially in your pocketbook, meaning no new members should join your organization through dues or volunteerism, your current member should burn or chop up and throw away their membership cards and then contact you and let you know their disgust and disappointment for your actions towards helping politicians slowly chip away from Social Security and Medicare. and then ultimately play a role in the privation of these two great programs that have worked for many decades. You not only hurt present seniors but seniors to be far in the future. You no longer need to act like you are an advocate and protector of Seniors, but be who you really are, that is corporate insurance hawks just wanting folks money with no real advocacy for them.
I will only change my mind in not supporting or joining AARP if its Executives publicly State and prove that they no longer support in any way changing and/or cutting Medicare and Social Security benefits, raising the retirement age, preventing Seniors and the disabled from receiving annual cost of living increases, and throwing Seniors and the disabled under the bus in the name of profits and helping the rich and organizations maintain their wealth with no shared sacrifice to help pull this Country out of debt is un- American and un-Christian like as well. I never want to join AARP whose Executives opened the door for making any changes or cuts in Medicare or Social Security that is the ultimate betrayal of its present and future members.

The greedy selfish Republican Politicans don’t want to increase taxes on the wealthy to help pay down the national debt, but they want the middle class, the working poor, the poor, the elderly, and the disabled to bear the brunt of cuts to social programs to help balance the budget while the rich fat cats [...]
