Political Seasons

The Kansas Republican Caucuses are over, and with them the robo-calls.  I did get one call from a person during the run-up.  I happened to answer it and it was a poll.  Fortunately I had the right answer (Ron Paul) and it was a very short call.  At that point I quit answering the land line–anyone I want to call me has my cell number (XXX-XXX-XXXX).  So the calls are over until after the Conventions when we will get hit with–I don’t want to know.

Then there is the junk mail.   My wife has been getting surveys from various groups since last September at least reminding her to “renew” her membership in various committees she has never been a member of.  As a Democrat she gets letters from Nancy Pelosi. Joe Biden. Michelle Obama and sometimes even President Obama.  She also gets mail from every Democratically affiliated organization.  And every one contains an important survey or petition along with a request for money and a reminder of the doom which will befall the country if President Obama is not reelected.

Since I am registered Republican (I did register as a Democrat a couple of times to participate in a primary but that’s just a Kansas thing) I have not been getting much from the Party.  This may be due to the fact that they take me for granted, but it’s probably because they don’t have a candidate so they don’t have a message.  I do get information from a number of their affiliate groups.  And every one contains an important survey or petition along with a request for money and a reminder of the doom which will befall the country if President Obama is reelected.

At any rate, the real campaign starts Labor Day.
