Why get it for free when you can pay?

Southern Beale isn't sure how she got on the AmeriPac mailing list but she notices a disgusting scam in their latest "Conservative Action Alerts." They are urging their members to send faxes on the latest faux threat to the Republic. The thing is they're charging significant money to do it. In other words, these people are preying on the computer illiterate like elderly tea partiers who wouldn't know that there are many commericial sites that will fax for free. And of course free faxing has been a staple on activist sites of the left from the beginning.

If you think about it, every conservative activist group has turned out to be little more than a scam to fleece the rubes in order to enrich the "organizers." What's truly ugly is the people they prey on are the very ones who can least afford to spend the money and they only send the cash because they've been deluded by lies about liberal programs that would actually benefit them.

And here's another conservative PAC that spends big -- on itself.

It's really all just about the money, isn't it? Our entire political process is just one big fat shakedown.

The Dems do it too, I get a half dozen e-mail and snail-mail solicitations every day. It's sickening.

I was about to post on that link SoBeale. That fax scam is big in GOP circles I guess. But you're right that it happens on the left too. It's all about the Benjamins.
