RNC sent my son (16) a propaganda packet the other day.
Complete with a "Do you support the President's initiatives to make America safer..." push poll. I turned it into an educational opportunity and explained what a push poll was and its purpose.

Where did they get his name? NCLB, same as the Army? Any other parents of teenagers see mass mailings from the RNC addressed to your children?

1. Must be No Cannon Fodder Left Behind.
You have an opt out choice, I believe, and it may be that you still can beat the deadline if you formally write to his school.

8. Yes...its a good thing humans make it past zygote stage
or we would have no cannon fodder. Otherwise we would have a world full of idols to worship. :eyes: The right: silliness in action.

4. Are you registered at a church?
I have a nephew (15) who was sent some RNC info...I think it could either be traced to his school or the Catholic church he belongs to.

5. THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY OF A LIFETIME!!!!!!!
Edited on Fri Sep-30-05 08:31 AM by liberalitch
and it's a cool activity to do with your child.....
Create your own propaganda packet..... with your child's ideology featured make it real slick and send it to them.....
Oh.... what fun!

PS.... I'd also contact the local post master and say that the RNC is stalking your family by mail..... mailing minors "inappropriate literature.....
Maybe even contact the local news!

10. I think he was planning to take it to school.
He says his AP American History teacher might find it interesting.

6. With enlistment numbers
at an all time low, this is yet another way for recruiters to obtain names of young innocent victims. I would urge every parent to submit the "Opt Out" form.

11. Jokes
Could have been one of his friends that submitted his name. Like submitting your name for the Troybilt tiller. You never get off of that list :)
