POTUS task force

Equal opportunity? | OPINION: We received this “invitation(?)” to respond to a survey and contribute. Though registered as an independent, evidently the Republican Pennsylvania Task Force (sent by the Republican National Committee) is an equal opportunity solicitor of funds by inviting us to serve as a member of the President’s Republican Presidential Task Force. The form letter is signed by Donald J. Trump. We’re shut out of voting in primary elections, but the Republican National Committee doesn’t care about that.



  1. Equal opportunity? Yeah, right, give us your money. There is no need for you to vote in the primary. We know best what’s good for you. Just lie back and enjoy it.

    I am reminded of those Citi Group credit card TV commercials where the speaker at the end says, “What’s in your wallet?” Don’t they mean, “Whose in your wallet?”
