I am the fortunate or unfortunate recipient of countless emails from the tRUMP campaign. I also receive countless solicitations from Biden. The difference between the two is day and night. The Biden solicitations are straightforward asks for money. They contain messages about the importance of money and the importance of defeating tRUMP. The tRUMP solicitations are straightforward frauds.
One solicitation said that I had been chosen among all of tRUMP
supporters to be in the 100 club. This club is limited to 100 tRUMP
supporters from around the country. If I did not act immediately, I
would lose my chance to be in the club. It goes without saying that
this is laughable. But, it is much more sinister than laughable.. The
tRUMP campaign would not put this out if it were not effective. This
means that thousands if not tens of thousands of supporters contribute
because they think they are in a club limited to 100 people.
Eric tRUMP sent me an e mail that said that if I immediately make a
contribution, there would be a 400% match. I assume this is lie. But I
also assume it is an effective lie.
Lara tRUMP sent me an e mail saying that I could be in the VIP
club. There would be only 100 members of the VIP club. If I did not
act before midnight, my place would be taken by someone else. Another
damnable lie. But people believe it.
The Federal Elections Commission is a toothless entity. The FEC
has an equal number of Republicans and Democrats. The commission should
vigilantly scrutinize fraudulent election tactics. It is a guarantee,
however, that a complaint against the tRUMP campaign would tossed into
the trash bin.
Now to the fearmongering. For this solicitation tRUMP actually used
the USPS. It is a four page diatribe of the most disgusting
fearmongering imaginable. To quote, " If Joe Biden wins the White House
in November it's game over for American Capitalism". He calls the
green new deal a Socialist pipedream. He says that Democrats want to
turn our country into a big government socialist nightmare like
Venezuela. He said that the green new deal would kill the energy sector
and the airline industry and cost tens of millions of American Jobs.
He claims that Democrats forced his hand to call a national emergency
at the border because of their utter contempt for the security of
everyday citizens. He said that his big, beautiful wall is giving
greater security from the pandemic and prevents the flow of hardened
criminals who threaten our children and our way of life. He said that
the Democrats are using the coronavirus to push for mail in voting so it
could open the door for widespread fraud and abuse. I could go on.
The bottom line is that a contribution of $45 or more would get you a
limited edition MAGA hat. and would help insure victory.
I can't watch Hannity and I can't listen to Limbaugh. But I do
read tRUMP'S solicitation to get a sense of the tRUMP netherworld.
tRUMP has done incalculable damage to our country. Much of it can be
fixed with a Democratic president and Congress. But the hate and venom
spewed by tRUMP and his supporters may last for decades.
In my view, tRUMP and his enablers are floundering. The
signs are good for a Democratic sweep and an end to the nightmare. But
it is an eternity to the election. So stay optimistic and help get out
the vote. If we do that we win.
