All I can say is sometimes the best vote you make is with your wallet...

It is also difficult to say "no" without some kind of explanation. In this case, a divergence with a publically stated political position.
Apparently no members have issue with their insurance program (other than high rates), or their magazine. So political performance is definitely on the table as an issue to influence whether people should join or not.

Very well said - however you can get a reply blocked even if it doesn't get political.

X2. For those that say AARP is the only thing going for seniors, Amac is worth looking into. I just turned 56 and have been getting AARP mail for 6 years. I return the blank forms in their postage paid envelopes. Maybe in a few more years they'll realize I'm not interested.

We didn't and wouldn't join regardless of the discounts just because of AARP's policies.

Same here for the Hartford, have had several other companies give me quotes on my auto coverage over the years and no one has come close. Politics is a different story but money talks

Just by joining, you fund their policies. IMO, discounts are just not worth it.

OK, why is the warning gone now, the one you have to acknowledge before you post to the thread?
