Republican National Committee's telemarketing firm asked me to renew my party membership...
nd their representative — bless her heart — got to hear in No Uncertain Terms™ my conditions, to wit:
When I see a photograph of the 700th mile of border fencing being built, I will renew my membership. Or at the very least, the 70 miles that are supposed to be built this month.
To which she replied, "But the president doesn't have anything to do with funding of fences," etc., etc.
I was compelled to correct her. "Excuse me," I said. "The bill has been passed. The money has been appropriated. The only thing we're waiting on is for the President of the United States to do the construction."
That's when she thanked me for my time and hung up.
She had said it was important to advance our conservative agenda. Sounds reasonable. Except at the top of that agenda is strengthening our national security. So how, in the middle of a World War, are we going to advance it if we remain unwilling to fully secure our still vulnerable borders?
As long as I have to keep asking where's the fence, the Republican leadership has no business asking me where are my membership dues.
