Examples of those who prey on fear

From letters to my 87-year-old mother-in-law.

The National Center for Public Policy Research

Dear Mrs. -----

I can’t thank you enough for your very generous donation of $250.00 in support of our Health Care Reform Task Force. We received it on 12/26/12.



With warm personal wishes,

Amy Ridenour, Director

Dear Mrs. -----

Amy Ridenour also wants money for the National Retirement Security Task Force in order to save Social Security. David Ridenour is president of The National Center for Public Policy Research.

Edwin Meese III wants $25 -$1,000 so the Southeastern Legal Foundation can join Michele Bachman, Paul Broun, Lynn Westmoreland, Steve King, Martha Blackburn and others to “hold President Barrack Obama and his Administration accountable to the rule of law.”

The Seniors Coalition wants $20 membership and additional money in order to represent older Americans.

Also using fear are: the U.S. Taxpayer Alliance; Frontiers of Freedom; National Tax Limitation Committee; Task Force to Impeach Obama; Joint Committee for Investigation and Impeachment; Emergency Committee to Save Medicare; National Campaign to Impeach Obama; National Campaign to Guarantee Social Security; and from one of those bastions of conservatism, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY): “Please sign the enclosed Emergency Second Amendment Protection Directive and rush it back to the National Association for Gun Rights along with your most generous contribution of $500, $250, $100, $50 or $25 IMMEDIATELY.”

(I have sent a letter to Glenn Beck. Sen. Paul will get one as well.)
