Here’s some things you should know about the AARP. On Monday, the AARP suddenly blocked many conservatives on Twitter, leaving them bewildered as to what they had done to engender that response. The AARP”
For those of you that don’t know, the AARP has always been firmly on the side of the Democratic Party. Here are some facts from “Discover the Networks.”
While AARP describes itself as politically “non-partisan,” it consistently supports leftist initiatives that reflect Democratic Party agendas and AARP’s own stated commitment to “collective purpose” geared toward “social Change” advocacy.
For example, the organization backs entitlements for migrant workers; favors a progressive tax structure that places a disproportionate burden on high earners; endorses the estate tax; opposes the privatization of Social Security; opposes the reformation of Medicare and Social Security entitlements; and favors strict gun control. In 2003 AARP lauded the passage of a massive Medicare prescription drug plan which added, bu of some measures $15.6 trillion to America’s long-term entitlement deficit. Unlike most big-time lobbyists, AARP does not have a political action committee and thus makes no campaign contributions as an organization. Studies of the donation patterns of individual AARP staffers, however, reveal a dramatic preference for Democrats. For example, during the 06,08, and 10 election cycles, Democrats were the recipients of more than 90 percent of the money which AARP employees and executives gave to federal candidates or campaign committees.
If you are looking for an organization you can trust I suggest AMAC. Association of Mature American Citizens. Just google AMAC for info. And it’s a lot cheaper than AARP. and they give almost all of the same services. A five year membership is $59.00 dollars.
