I’m asking you to join my online team by becoming a Deputy Delegate today. Click here to confirm your Deputy Delegate status, and we’ll mail your official DEPUTY DELEGATE CARD to you.
At the start of this election cycle, I added my email address to the mailing lists of both the Donald Trump and Ted Cruz campaigns. The number of emails that Trump has personally sent me asking for money has been zero. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, sends me a minimum of 2-3 emails per day, 7 days a week without fail, in which he pleadingly begs for money. And when I say he ‘begs for money’, I mean just that. Here are a few lines randomly selected from emails I receive regularly from Cruz:
- To keep in this fight, I need a personal favor from you. This campaign cannot function without you. Geoffrey, will you make a critical one year anniversary gift of $3 to my campaign?
- I’d like to give you something special — but I can only swing it if you activate your Cruz Crew membership BEFORE January 1st!
- If you can help my campaign today, I would be forever grateful. I trust you will respond to my urgent request as soon as you can. With just weeks before the first votes are about to be cast — I need every last ounce of support I can get.
I am sure that the emails were written in a tone designed to be ‘conversational’ and in touch with the ‘common people’, but they come off as cloying and pathetic. But 2 days ago, he sent me one that I feel really went over the top. His new scheme is that he will give me the made up title of ‘top deputy delegate’ if I will only fire off a quick $35 bucks to him. Here is a highlight of what he said in it to me:
“I’m asking you to join my online team by becoming a Deputy Delegate today. Click here to confirm your Deputy Delegate status, and we’ll mail your official DEPUTY DELEGATE CARD to you. But you have to act in the next 48 hours — we are working to secure a team of Deputy Delegates all across the country committed to support my candidacy and our drive to secure the 1,237 official delegates needed to win. So please, become a Deputy Delegate ASAP! Your immediate contribution will give you behind-the-scenes access and information on campaign delegate strategy.”
All bold and underlined sections are how I received it. So what is a ‘top deputy delegate’ you ask? It’s nothing, a total made up term designed to deceive you into thinking you just actually bought something. But this has been the hallmark of of the ‘Lying Ted’ campaign all along. Notice that the last line says my contribution will give me ‘behind the scenes access’ to some nebulous, unspecified information on ‘campaign delegate strategy’. What exactly is that, Mr. Barnum?
This is why they call him ‘Lying Ted’ Cruz:
If you are a Cruz supporter, this article will cause you to leave nasty comments for me in the section below, and honestly, that’s fine. But how on earth, after watching a video like this, can you still think that he is not a pathological liar? Is this really what you want in the White House, a man seemingly incapable of speaking the truth?
Ted Cruz railed against ‘New York Values‘ saying it was all about ‘money and the media’. So it really makes me laugh seeing him use the media to beg for money. What it shows the insincere and ungenuine nature of his ultra-slick, focus group driven campaign. Cruz is the ultimate Washington insider, and he will absolutely advance the New World Order agenda. Here’s what the rest of his offer to make me a ‘top deputy delegate’ had to say:
By becoming a card-carrying Deputy Delegate, you will be a champion for our campaign no matter where you go. Your personalized card will symbolize your support of our shared conservative values and vision for the future of America. You will be among the first to know about important developments relating to the campaign and will be invited to participate in upcoming strategy calls. With this card also comes responsibility. As a Deputy Delegate, I am going to lean heavily on you to support our campaign in your local neighborhood and community as well as online. So, Geoffrey, I’m asking you again today to stand with me and become a Deputy Delegate with a donation of $35 or more right now.
But hey, it’s still a free country, right? Follow this link to become an official ‘top deputy delegate’ for the Ted Cruz campaign. And when you do, please write to us and share the exciting ‘insider information’ that Ted will share with you and only you as one of his ‘top deputy delegates’.
As PT Barnum said, “this way to the Egress“.
