I just got a call at work from "Jameelia" from the California Libertarian
Party. She was asking me if I planned on attending the convention. I told
her I would think about it because my schedule is erratic. Then she
solicited me to become a "monthly pledger" to the Libertarian party, and
said "as long as you're a monthly pledger in good standing, you can vote on
party business". Then she said "you can pledge either 1% or 2% of your
monthly salary to remain a member of the party".
I asked her if she was a member of the party. She said "No". I told her to
have a member of the party call me and I'll discuss it with them.
I don't like this tactic at all of "as long as you're a monthly pledger in
good standing, you can vote on party business".
Anyone else get this call?
I got a similar call from someone identified only as "Kevin" today, selling
the cruise and soliciting pledges. He stated, correctly, that the LPC would
pay the annual dues, (now $50), from any pledge amount, which could be $10
per month or up. I asked about 1% or 2% and he said they do suggest that
amount but explained during further conversation that the figure means
nothing in particular; high earners don't have to give more and low income,
even students, don't get any special rate. However, Kevin said that he IS a
party member. I trust that is true.
