Democrats Tricked into Donating to Republican Party
OK, first of all: You can't be gullible or unfocused when you're making donations online, or deciding whether or not to click on a certain link. Too many hidden traps; too much fine print. But the fact that only gullible people fall for a certain scam doesn't change the fact that the person pulling that scam is a lowlife sack of shit.
Exhibit A: the National Republican Congressional Committee has set up a series of trick websites whose sole purpose is to con Democratic donors into donating to a Democratic candidate's Republican opponent instead. Again, let the buyer beware, look both ways before crossing the street, don't turn off the bathroom light switch while your hands are still wet, etc.
But still...the Republican Party is now in the same league with all those blaring magazine and Internet ads we've all been seeing for years. “Send $100 to this P.O. Box and YOU can earn thousands of dollars a week stuffing envelopes at home in your spare time!!!” “Thousands of jobs are going begging! Enroll NOW in our expensive school and YOU too will be earning a huge salary in this exciting new field!”
The GOP has long since given up any hope of winning elections on the strength of their ideas or solutions. Their only hope is to pull every trick imaginable to keep non-Republicans from voting, and to keep gerrymandering congressional districts so that House Republicans are guaranteed to be re-elected no matter how extreme or corrupt they are.
