Mr. Reince Priebus
Republican National Committee
I have written this in response to your fund raising letter dated July 29, 2016. Please be aware that I changed my voter registration after Donald Trump captured the Republican Presidential nomination and hijacked what used to be known as the Party of Lincoln. I am now registered as a Libertarian. You can save some stamp money by ending the solicitation letters.
In addition, please note that I have also written to my Congressman, Chris Smith. First, I asked him where he stood with respect to Trump. Second, after hearing no reply to my initial query, I wrote again asking him to oppose Trump. Thus far I have not had the courtesy of a reply, notwithstanding the fact that his office has had well over 1 month to respond.
According to the August 9, 2016 Trentonian, Mr. Smith’s office is still not responding to queries about whether Congressman Smith supports Trump. Please note that it is highly unlikely that I will vote to re-elect Mr. Smith while he remains in hiding. And I am certainly not going to give the Republican Party a dime until such time as it is repopulated with adults.
Perhaps that will happen by 2020. We shall see. But in the meantime I do not wish to be associated with a bunch of lemmings as they prepare to enthusiastically hurl themselves over the cliff Trump has so thoughtlessly prepared for them.
Very truly yours,
Joseph F Benning
