RNC document mocks donors, plays on 'fear'

Exclusive: RNC document mocks donors, plays on 'fear'

Shocking. Using fear to get elected? Mocking the donors?

Compared to Democrat fundraisers and fear mongering, this looks downright tame.

Let's not pretend that Republicans have a monopoly on "aggressive" campaign fundraising.

Obama cause me fear. I fear what his presidency may do to me, and the pocketbooks of the average consumer, so I'm thinking about not hiring in spring for the first time ever.
Republicans are spot on about tapping this very real political issue: fear of government taking resources from small business that are needed for jobs!

You didn't like your federal tax cut this year?

-- oh, of course... you're in the top 5%, so you didn't get one. Only us little folks in the bottom 95% did... like your minimum wage workers you can't afford to hire. If you stopped taking so many vacations in Cancun and driving an SUV, you could probably afford to hire more workers and then me and the majority of tax payers in this country wouldn't have to keep subsidizing your business.

Kevin Scheunemann said...


I wonder where you get your "info".

No, I am not in top 5%.

My "SUV" is a used U.S. government surplus truck with an ugly snow plow on front.

I have no minimum wage workers on staff currently.

It was not a "tax cut", only the witholding tables were reduced,(the income tax burden was not actually cut), so my refund will be less this year.

Tax cut? Please, even Forrest Gump would not fall for that one!

Why don't you like proposed payroll tax holiday on new hires?

The GOP loves your ignorance.

Mpeterson said...

So the income tax burden continues to be shifted from the rich onto the shoulders of the poor, as it was under Conservatives during the previous 30 years?

I'm sorry to hear you don't make more money. Maybe it's because all of these government subsidies for business are making you lazy. If you'd just work harder I'm sure you'll come out on top.

Kevin Scheunemann said...

Why should I work harder?

We have numerous people, like yourself, running around saying how any accumulated wealth is somehow "ill-gotten" even though I used to work 100 hours a week and the government always ended up taking everything at the end of the year.

Thats part of the reason I sold off 5 of the 6 units I owned. Its just stupid to work hard in this nation, missing family/personal time so someone else can consume the fruits of my hard work.

So I work a lot less these days, spend time with my kids, spend time with my favorite philosophy professor, and work on civic pursuits I enjoy, instead of being a peasant slave to taxation and those who constantly assault productive America.

Sure, my decision has resulted in less jobs, less paid in taxes, and less economic development (given that I scraped the ideas I had), but I can say I tossed off my liberal tax slave peasantry...and I'm much better for it!

I'm not the only leader and achiever on strike in this country...I can assure you.

Oh Jesus, here we go.... all these people fancy themselves characters in Atlas Shrugged....

Kevin Scheunemann said...


"these people"? I sense a disdain for leaders and achievers...

If I were a "victim", would that make me more sympathetic in your eyes?

If that's the case, think of me as a "victim" liberal tax and regulatory policy. I was tired of dealing with the constantly moving "gotcha" bureaucrat mentality especially present in the WI Department of Revenue.

Do you have any tips on how to get "free stuff" from the government with my newly found "victimhood"?

Mpeterson said...

Kevin, please, your entire political ideology, like Nietzsche's slaves, depends on understanding yourself as a victim. Without the Big Bad Wolf, you'd have no political identity at all.

DanBack said...

I assume by "leaders and achievers" you mean the self-employed? If that is the case then no... I don't have distain for myself.

Look Kevin, you and I are the same. We both cut our own paychecks.

The last resort of the failed entrepreneur: blame everyone else.

Kevin Scheunemann said...


Isn't "victimhood" the concept so called "progressives" rely on 95% of the time?

I find it funny that I would be the one accused of relying on "victimhood" for my political identity.

Victimology has been mastered by American liberalism and "progressives".

I can only hope to be as good at "victimology" one day!

How's my training going?

Sheep need a wolf, Kevin. And if they can't find one, they invent it.
