    I received an ad today on my news feed from AMAC, which touts itself as an alternative to AARP.

    AMAC is the acronym that describes the Association of Mature American Citizens, and it prides itself on being a CONSERVATIVE organization.

    https://amac.us/

    According to Wikipedia, AMAC was founded in 2007, and it has roughly 1.1 million members.

    AMAC describes itself as "vigorously conservative" and gained support from talk show host Glenn Beck and other conservative figures. AMAC strongly opposes the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and has pushed for its repeal. In March 2014, AMAC claimed a membership of 1.1 million members, up from 40,000 in 2008, which it attributed to backlash over the ACA.

    AMAC supports a plan for Social Security which would gradually increase the earliest retirement age to 64 (from 62) and "guarantee cost-of-living increases in a tiered structure based on income."AMAC supports the oil and gas industry, claiming that they "are safer for the environment than ever." The group's president, Dan Weber, called for a rollback of Obama administration policies to promote clean energy.

    The AMAC has a volunteer "delegate" program, aiming to select an AMAC member in each congressional district across the country to meet and lobby members of Congress.

    In February 2017 AMAC issued a warning to the upcoming 2017 Academy Awards ceremony to not tolerate speeches against President Donald Trump, threatening to launch a boycott of theaters.

    (editors note: what does the 1st amendment say about that?)

    AARP, founded in 1958, has 38,000,000 members.

    If I had to guess, I would predict that 100% of the AMAC members are FOX viewers, and I am fairly certain that ALL of them voted for Trump.

    We might be surprised to find out how many AARP members voted for trump.

    "43.6 percent of voters nationally approved of the president's performance"

    aarp.org/politics-society/government-el...

    Let's not forget that the majority of old fart white voters love that make America great again shit.

    AARP like the other is a lobbyist organization, I usually drop my AARP literature in the recycle bin. I won't pay a lobbyist organization one penny, if they want to lobby congressional representatives, let them do so at their own expense, money can't buy everything IMHO.

    That is what you get in this type of society; lobbyist groups are inbred in this country, because there is no law which prevents them to meddle with "elections" as well "governing"; as an example the NRA spent millions as well even did money laundering of foreign entities to get it their way. Lobbying in elections should be banned as any other civilized countries do. Here even the churches participate and "lobby" for the Pence "mob". As long as this is allowed with billions of "money" being pushed as a kind of bribery, then you can't call this an"democratic" society. Let alone that "elections" are"honest" Corrupt to the "bone".

    In the mail today, I received an invitation from Allen West to join AMAC.

    West represented Florida's 22nd congressional district from 2011 to 2013. In Congress, West was a high-profile member of the Tea Party Caucus and the Tea Party movement. Redistricting due to the 2010 census resulted in West switching to Florida's 18th congressional district for the 2012 House elections. He lost to Democratic nominee Patrick Murphy in what was the most expensive congressional House race of that cycle.

    West ran for the chairmanship of the Republican Party of Texas in 2020. West became the new state chairman after he defeated the incumbent chairman, James Dickey, on July 20, 2020 Widely described as a "firebrand conservative", West has been criticized for comments about Islam, descriptions of President Barack Obama as a "low-level Socialist agitator", and unfounded accusations that 81 Democratic members of Congress were members of the Communist Party. (Sounds like Joe McCarthy, doesn't it?).

    His letter says that AMAC "works with members of Congress to strengthen America's national , defense, protect your Social Security benefits, and keep terrorists from crossing our vulnerable borders". He also said that AARP "uses your membership fees to support its far-left agenda, that includes Obamacare, same -sex marriage, amnesty for illegal immigrants, and repealing the 2nd Amendment".

    The envelope also contained a letter from Rebecca Weber, who states that AMAC is a conservative alternative to the liberal anti-Trump AARP.

    Since the membership of AMAC is significantly smaller than the membership of AARP, they'll have less influence on legislation than AARP does, but the group is still going to attract a few more of the Trump supporters than it already has.

    All I have to say: And people still think this country is "number one" in the world? Forget it "corrupt to the bone" is an better slogan.

    Just an question; has anyone ever seen an more corrupt country with also corrupt elections in the "civil" world than this country? It really belongs to the worst; even S.America is more honest ha ha. But at least we are not yet on the level as in Russia, but that will come if Trump gets re-elected.
