I just received a letter today from Peg Luksik’s campaign. This is the next in a long line of spam mailings I have gotten from conservative republicans. Her letter to me starts, “Dear fellow conservative, Do you believe in God? How about the values of hard work, self reliance and personal responsibility? Of course you do.”
I am not a republican. I am not conservative. If you had to classify me then you could call me a progressive libertarian. I don’t know when republicans assumed that libertarians were god believing conservatives. Maybe this was because of Bob Barr’s candidacy this past presidential election. It sure is easier to assume that libertarians are just pissed off republicans, rather than representing a genuinely different political philosophy.
For each piece of mail I have received from these conservatives, I have sent their campaigns email to ask where they got my address from. I have not heard back from a single one of them. From this, I assume they took me off their mailing list and moved on. Let us wait and see.
I’m done being nice about this. Peg Luksik has broken the camel’s back on this one. My new tactic is to blog about their obliviousness and hopefully raise my page ranks high enough to have an impact.
Progressive libertarians unite!
