That’s Going Too Far! recently obtained this furndraising letter sent from the Republican National Committee to select Republicans nationwide
January 11, 2005
Well, here they go again. The liberal media is up to its old tricks, trying to use the truth to bash President Bush and his policies. We’ve seen it before. They tried to discredit the glorious liberation of Iraq with “facts” and “proof,” tried to derail the Patriot Act by pointing to so-called “truths” in the Constitution. And now, fellow patriots, thy are using this same dirty trick to attack President Bush’s proposed changes to Social Security.
Is this underhanded, un-American tactic as abhorrent to you as it is to me? Is it right that they think they can attack the President’s policies simply because the numbers don’t add up and the arguments are unsubstantiated? Is it good for this country to continuously question the Administration’s proposals, even when they’re wrong? There is something insidious about haranguing the President of the United States over whether he knows what he’s talking about or not. Who cares? Only those “blame America first” liberal elites, that’s who
This is still America. Isn’t it? Land of the free, home of the brave? We are a proud people who don’t need to have the “truth” to know what’s right and wrong. This great country wasn’t founded by scientists and philosophers, but by unshaven mountain men who smelled like the rotting carcass of a week old dead beaver, but who weren’t afraid to shoot first and ask questions later. Believe me, friends, your gut is the ultimate truth.
There is a political agenda behind this “truth” thing, mark my words, and it’s time to fight back. Help the Republican National Committee launch a campaign to combat truth, in all it’s ugly visages. Our President needs us now, more than ever. Thank you for your past generous contributions. I ask for your help once again in battling an enemy of formidable, but not unbeatable, strength—the truth. Thank you.
Republican National Committee
