Survey Says…

The RNC sent out a fund-raiser masquerading as a survey in which they asked a somewhat loaded question:

“It has been suggested that the government could use voter registration to determine a person’s political affiliation, prompting fears that GOP voters might be discriminated against for medical treatment in a Democrat-imposed health care rationing system. Does this possibility concern you?”

It has also been suggested that the world is flat and if you sail too far out to sea you’ll fall off the edge.

The RNC admitted later that the questions was “inartful,” even though they remain concerned about giving “government bureaucrats access to a range of Americans’ personal information.” As opposed to handing it over to a private corporation like UHC who will then use it to send me “friendly e-mail reminders” to schedule a check-up with my gynecologist.

Besides, it’s too late: the government already knows my Social Security number.
