GOP *still* sending out fake census fundraiser forms.

Even after being called out on their misleading practices starting months ago, it seems the Republican "Census" fundraising document is still going out... we received one in the mail at my house today, so I thought ONTD_P might enjoy seeing what the Republican National Committee considers Fair & Balanced and clearly totally non-leading survey questions.

Sorry for the poor quality photos, these were taken with my cell phone and (badly) stitched together.






In addition to what's in the photographs, it also asks for stuff like which way you lean politically, how often you vote, your age, where you get political news from, and other demographic type information.

Some of my favorite totally unbiased, factual, and non-leading survey questions:

"How much does it concern you that the Democrats have total control of the federal government? - Very Much / Not Too Much / Not a Concern / No Opinion"

"Do you believe the huge, costly, Democrat-passed stimulus bill has been effective in creating jobs or stimulating America's economy? - Yes / No / No Opinion"

"Do you think the record trillion-dollar federal deficit the Democrats are creating with their out-of-control spending is going to have disastrous consequences for our nation? - Yes / No / No Opinion"

"Do you believe the Obama Adminisration is right in dramatically scaling back our nation's military? - Yes / No / No Opinion"

"Do you trust the Democrats to take all steps necessary to keep our nation secure in this age where terrorists could strike our country at any moment? - Yes / No / No Opinion"


And at the end of the document, in addition to options for donating $500, $250, $100, $50, $25, or your own preferred amount, there's a checkbox for:

"I cannot send a donation at that level right now. But I am enclosing $15 to help defray the cost of processing my Census Document" (emphasis theirs)


I'm not sure whether to call all this propaganda or just preaching to the choir.
