Letter to AARP: Leave Me Alone.

with one comment

the-aarp-america-doesnt-knowjpg-ea8681a5ea846de4If you’re 50 or older you get them too.

Letters from the AARP with membership cards.  Letters offering you deals, freebies, and an appeal for your dollars.

Personally I don’t care for organizations that say they’re one thing and turn out to be something completely different.  AARP happens to be one of those in my opinion.

They have devolved into a PAC for the left and Democrats and for years have been cleverly disguised as a non-profit 501(c)(4).

With that in mind I penned the following request to be removed from their mailing lists and not be bothered again.

Before you decide to join AARP, please do some research and study of their leadership, their political meddling, and the fact that they really aren’t a non-profit and they’ve been lying to seniors for years.  Click the image Behind The Veil: The AARP America Doesn’t Know and you can see the full report.

*************

To Whom It May Concern:

Please stop sending me mail and immediately take me off of your mailing lists.

I have no desire to become a member of AARP. Your organization does not reflect the moral, social, or political values I subscribe to.

When an organization’s primary mission is to sell a product (in this case health care insurance) and spends tons of money on lobbying and political contributions, it should not be eligible for tax-exempt status.  AARP has violated its 501(c)(4) status because it makes its money primarily from insurance industry royalties, with membership dues accounting for a mere 17%.

I have no desire for my money to go to Democratic causes, which I oppose.  While AARP itself does not give money to political candidates your employees do and overwhelmingly to Democrats.

The only reason AARP has continued to masquerade as a non-profit is due to political favors from friends on the left.  If conservatives gain control of the House, Senate, and White House, I expect that front to be taken away as it should be.

Lastly, the fraud perpetrated  on your current members through Obamacare is disturbing and disgusting.  You backed Obamacare simply because it put billions of dollars in your pockets as you benefit from the law’s changes to Medicare Advantage which will force many seniors right into your Medigap supplemental coverage.

You’re not an advocate for seniors; you’re an insurance company disguised as a non-profit. Wolf in sheep’s clothing would be another appropriate term.

By the way, why does AARP feel the need to meddle in energy policy in numerous states? Why have you bought into the scam known as man-made global warming?

How much is in it for you this time?

Good-bye and good riddance.
