Junk mail and junk calls that I paid to get

…or, why I will not be giving money to any political party in the future.

This last Presidential election cycle I gave a very small donation to one of the parties (doesn’t matter which).  This meager donation has resulted in 1-3 phone calls per day from affiliated ‘give us money’ groups, along with innumerable mailings from similar political groups, again wanting access to my wallet.

I stopped being an NRA member a while back mostly because of the continuous pleas for more money, now!  Seems my membership or donation money is me paying to be on a mailing list.

Phooey on that.  I will never again give money to any political party that won’t put, in writing, that I will not be contacted again.
