Here is my reply to their email:
Dear John McCain –
Your survey has no options for comments and your email below has no “opt out” option – it is also spam in that i did not give you permission to use my email … all of which confirms my reason to distance myself from the Republican Party as you are a huge historical embarrassment … consider the following:
1. The war in Iraq was result from lies headed by Republicans …
2. The supreme court let Exxon off the hook even though “the people” as juries saw the truth but this was over-run by a biased, perhaps even corrupt court …
3. The passage of FISA allows criminal behavior to go on without accountability …
I could go on but suffice it to say the Republican party is out of touch … the only candidate who seemed to make any sense was Mike Huckabee … note my displeasure with Republican’s does not mean I approve of Democrats but I can not continue to support a party where lies continue to be told …
Consider Mark Twain, “Once a man is caught in a lie, everything he says there after is followed by a question mark.” … with Bush saying, “yes there are weapons of mass destruction …” how can we believe anything he (or his administration or the republican party) has to say about any other matter …
John McCain, you might be a good man but you’re coming to the dance floor literally with the wrong party …
cordially, chuck scott
