The Fundraising Questionnaire
Serious queries followed by a serious request for money made the queries look like a sham.
Good politics is the art of making changes by unifying for the common good. Good leadership is the art of exercising good politics. (Demas 3/4/2018)
A Trump fundraiser produced a questionnaire called a "Survey."
The questions about how I felt on a wide variety of issues were good questions.
Rather than running through and trying to give good "Yes" and "No" or "No opinion" answers to the questions, I valued the opportunity to make personal comments where some serious answers could be heard or read by someone compiling my responses.
When I reached the end of the "Survey" I was subject to a donation drive that didn't want to let me go even when I donated my "Other $0000.00".
The somewhat demanding fundraiser left me thinking that, in all reality, the "Survey" was directed at rewarding the fundraising committee with what they had hoped would be my scarce dollars, instead of receiving the personal concerns and thoughts I had expressed.
This was my final comment before I reached the fundraiser: "Get serious about governing in the best interests Americans can collectively agree on. The 2016 Election did not give anyone a mandate to listen to one group to the ignoring of all others! The president was chosen by his voters despite his human failings, in hopes that he would make recognized changes where they were and are needed still. Good politics is the art of making changes by unifying for the common good. Good leadership is the art of exercising good politics."
I hope my answers to the "Survey" questions were as direct and serious as my final comment. At least I have satisfaction in believing they were.
