When it comes to Politics how low can you go?
Well I guess that depends on who you are, where you came from and how far those who are supposed to be lead allow you to take them.
Today I received a letter and on the outside envelope the return address looks to be the signature of Ted Cruz, under it is printed “U.S. Senator Ted Cruz”, under that is printed “personal business” and finally under that is printed “not printed or mailed at taxpayer expense”. Right next to the window of that same envelope is printed the words “check enclosed”. This is a 4 page mailer paid for by Cruz for President in which they suggest that if I care about conservative values I need to send them a 45 dollar check immediately and when that happens a big money donor will match that donation but time is limited and the offer will expire in the next 7 days. It appears to be pushing against the moderate Republicans that they say are in the mold of Mitt Romney or John McCain.
The weirdest thing of all is, I do not know how they got my name or information and how they assumed that I was associated with the Republican Party or would favor and follow someone like Ted Cruz but I guess if you send out enough of them, some will send you money and since these small money donors can legally be sucked dry, they can continue to use your name and personal information to sell the next up and comer while you get not even a small bang for your buck.
