Don't know if it is true or not but the writer signed. It is not anonymous. This captures my feelings as well as anything can. Kate and I cancelled our membership and got a refund a couple of years back. Bulge.


SHRINKING AARP IS LOSING PLENTY OF SENIORS - VERY IMPORTANT READ!!



Make sure to pass it along!!!!



AARP's Fall from Grace



It only takes a few days on the Internet and this will have reached 75% of the public in the USA .



This letter was sent to Mr. Rand who is the Executive Director of AARP.



THIS LADY NOT ONLY HAS A GRASP OF 'THE SITUATION' BUT AN INCREDIBLE COMMAND OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE!



Dear Mr. Rand,



Recently you sent us a letter encouraging us to renew our lapsed membership in AARP by the requested date. This isn't what you were looking for, but it's is the most honest response I can give you. Our coverage gap is a microscopic symptom of the real problem, a deepening lack of faith. While we have proudly maintained our membership for years and long admired the AARP goals and principles, regrettably, we can no longer endorse its abdication of our values. Your letter 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 nor the one we have come to embrace. We do believe that when two 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 once gave us a sense of belonging which we no longer enjoy. The Socialist politics practiced by the Obama Regime 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 that we are not contributing to the problem anymore by renewing our membership. There are numerous other organizations which offer discounts without threatening our way of life or offending our sensibilities and values.



This Obama Regime scares the living daylights out of us. Not just for ourselves, but for our proud and bloodstained heritage. But 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 endorsed any militant or radical groups, yet now I find myself listening to them. I don't have to agree with them to appreciate the fear which birthed 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.



Your website generously offers us the opportunity to receive all communication in Spanish. ARE YOU KIDDING??? The illegal perpetrators have broken into our 'house', invaded our home without invitation or consent. The President insists we keep these illegal perpetrators in comfort and learn the perpetrator's language so we can communicate our reluctant welcome to them. I DON'T choose to welcome them, to support them, to educate them, to medicate them, or to 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 play the game to be welcomed and others only have to break and enter to be welcomed?



We travel for a living. Walt hauls horses all over this great country, averaging over 10,000 miles a month when he is out there. He meets more people than a politician on caffeine overdose. Of all the many good folks he enjoyed on this last 10,000 miles, this trip yielded only ONE supporter of the current Regime. One of us is out of touch with mainstream America .. Since our poll is conducted without funding, I have more faith in it than ones that are driven by a need to yield AMNESTY (aka-make voters out of the foreign lawbreakers so they can vote to continue the government's free handouts). This addition of 10 to 20 million voters who then will vote to continue Socialism will OVERWHELM our votes to control the government's free handouts. It is a "slippery slope" upon which we must not embark .


As Margret Thatcher (former Prime Minister of Great Britain) once said "Socialism is GREAT - UNTIL you run out of other people's money".



We have decided to forward this to everyone on our mailing list, and will encourage them to do the same. With several hundred in my address book, I have every faith that the eventual exponential factor will make a credible statement to you. I am disappointed as all get-out! I am more scared than I have ever been in my entire life! I am ANGRY! I am MAD as hell, and I'm NOT going to take it anymore!



Walt & Cyndy Miller,
Miller Farms Equine Transport



KEEP THIS MOVING FORWARD . In internet lingo: If enough people pass this on, it will go viral.
Make sure to pass it along!!!!

This letter is from September 2009 - it's been validated but is old news, but no less accurate now than it was then.

We never joined AARP. We happily are members of AMAC! The Association of Mature American Citizens.

Jeff,

I don't know much about AMAC. Do they have political leanings?

Thanks,

Kit

Bulge,

Thanks for posting this letter. I'm not trying to pirate your thread, but I want to know more about ways to skunk AARP. They have really screwed us.

Kit

We belong to AMAC. I did belong to AARP, but after I found out how they are supported, how anti-gun they are, and they kiss all of the Hollywood liberal's asses, I punted them.

My wife and I joined AMAC about 2 to 3 years ago. Very similar to AARP with discounts. Bulge.

WS-1 not a problem. Mike.

I keep getting postage paid membership letters from AARP, and I'm still years away from retiring. I put scrap metal in the letters and send them back.

AARP FULLY endorsed Obama and Obamacare. They put politics ahead of their membership.

Which should not surprise anyone who is a gun owner. AARP does not believe you should own firearms.

AARP is nothing more than a political organization designed to support the Democrats by fooling the elderly into believing they actually care about them.

I have written AARP multiple letters telling them to take us off their mailing list. I do not need some panty waist socialist organization "representing" me. They never get the message and keep sending their crap. Every time there is an envelope that they pay the postage, I stuff the envelope as full as I can with all the junk mail I get that day and mail it back to them. In every envelope I write them a stern note telling them to quit bothering me. They just do not get the message, and still send me a couple things a month. I guess it keeps the postman working....
