The RNC: Are You Buying What They're Selling

(This article originally posted on Left Agenda)

The RNC wants more officials in federal office, there's no doubt about that. But, to what lengths are they willing to go? Well, they need money to run a campaign. Elections cost money, too much as far as I'm concerned. What was released today, though, shows how scandalous the RNC is concerning how they will convince people to contribute to them. These slides are part of a Power Point presentation given for RNC f... They had a little pow-wow on how to get more money, and someone left a hard-copy of the presentation lying around at the hotel. They're not denying it, but they are trying to separate Steele from the fall-0ut.

Now as the RNC points out, there are two main types of contributors.

The two types are Direct Marketing and Major Donors. This translates into Main Street contributors and Big Business/extremely wealthy contributors. That's all fine and good. Those are two completely different groups and I'm guessing that most of my readers and guests would fall into category 1, Main Street contributors. So, how does the RNC propose to get more Main Street contributions?

First, they note why people give. Again, category 2 contributors are covered. We know why Big Business and extremely wealthy people contribute, because they want something in return or as the RNC shows in the above slide, they're Calculated Givers, i.e. they've calculated what their contribution will get them in return. Let's get back to the regular people like you and me. Category 1, Main Street contributors, are called Visceral Givers.

Merriam-Webster's definition of visceral:
Main Entry: vis·cer·al
1 : felt in or as if in the viscera : deep <a visceral conviction>
2 : not intellectual : instinctive, unreasoning <visceral drives>
3 : dealing with crude or elemental emotions : earthy <a visceral novel>
4 : of, relating to, or located on or among the viscera : splanchnic <visceral organs>
Notice the terms used: "not intellectual", "crude or elemental emotions", "unreasoning".

Hello! Republican Main Street people, the RNC is talking about you. This isn't some liberal, elitist Democrat calling Republican voters "not intellectual" or stupid, it's the RNC!

So, these people, the Visceral Givers need to be sold on the idea of giving the RNC money. Hmm, how do they sell the idea to visceral people?

That's right in order to "sell" the idea of contributing to the RNC, the RNC has chosen Visceral Givers, or non-intellectuals and people that react from raw emotions as the buyers. Republicans, that's you! Not in my words, not by some liberal elitist but by the very party that you are supporting. They're calling you idiots. And what are they selling to these idiots?

Obama = Socialism.

Now, Republicans, Main Street voters, Real Red Blooded Americans,... are you buying what they're selling? The RNC is selling Americans lemons, let's make lemonade out of their mess. Friends don't let friends contribute to the RNC.

Thanks Ryan, I'd never heard of the HEF. Another organization that helps the poor with lots of different things, i.e. scholarships, tax advice, home loan counseling, voter registration, etc. is ACORN. That's why the RNC has been attacking them for all of these years.

And one of the best organizations I know of that is helping poor kids in urban school districts get the best possible education is the haberman educational foundation. http://www.habermanfoundation.org. Donate today!

Best thing is to find poor people in your neighborhood and help them get an education. Uneducated people are the republican's (and religions) best hope.

I may not agree with the Dems on everything, but the RNC is the true face of evil in this nation. I can't imagine a scenario where I could ever vote for a republican again.
