A few weeks ago, I received the “2009 Obama Agenda Survey” from the RNC (Republican National Committee). I am a registered Republican. I would say that I chose to register in that party because I do not like ‘big government’ and I am conservative in my views. After receiving this survey and checking online to see the contents of some of their other surveys – I may revoke my Republican registration and become an independent!
The questions were bias and offensive. Offensive to my intelligence. The RNC asked the questions in such a way to get the answers that they ласкового мальчика страпон wanted so they could produce statistics that they wanted. The questions did not attempt to harvest the ‘will of the people’. It was to evoke an answer that would support the agenda that they already have – not the agenda that I wish they would have.
Example (first question): Do you agree with Barack Obama’s budget plan that will lead to a $23.1 trillion deficit over the next ten years?
First, I am offended that the question does not refer to President
Obama. The man was elected by the people of the United States and deserve the respect of that office.
Second, is there anyone, Republican or Democrat, who totally agrees with a budget that produces trillions in deficit? So if I answer “yes” to the question then I am giving blanket approval to hundreds of items that will never make it through Congress! If I answer “no” then I am disapproving items that should be given consideration and passed. It is Congress who will approve, disapprove, and amend the budget and it is Congress who should take the responsibility – not one man.
So, RNC, keep shooting yourself in the foot and you will lose the next election, too!!!
