Yep. I'll have to ask my friend if he put me on there as a joke. But it's equally possible that the Trumpites bought my email address from some email thief. I gather the buying and selling of email addresses is a "thing."

I browsed through the comments and almost everyone agrees that there is no honesty or integrity in it. Because there isn't. But people seem to be focusing on the appeal for money. That's not where the dishonesty is occurring. Many honest causes ask for money. Even evil causes can be honest about their aims. But this one isn't. The dishonesty comes in their claim as to what they will do with the money. They are not Pro-America. They are Pro-Corporate-America.

@TheHorse Maybe...I'm not sure how much support Trump is going to get from the RNC. Especially financial support. I mean real support. They will keep giving him lip service but real support? I'm not so sure. These things take an agonizing amount of time. They want to make sure every base is at least triple covered. But if you pay attention, there is still a steady trickle of good news in that area. It's just not huge headline stuff. Not yet but that part is coming.

Unless you are already a card-carrying part of the Conservative group mentioned here, I would say that the honesty piece has already been dishonored. As far as integrity, I think that all political parties are sorely lacking, but especially the GOP of today. I'm surprised that I ever was a card-carrying member for years of my life.
