AMAC vs. AARP

 

AMAC Logo resized 600For years – since 1958, to be exact, when Ethel Percy Andrus, a retired high school principal, founded it – the AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) was been the only game in town when it came to representing the interests of senior citizens.

Not any more.

In the summer of 2007 Dan Weber, a retired businessman, founded the Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC). While similar to the AARP in its objective – to fight for and protect the interests of Americans over the age of 50 – AMAC enters the fray from the opposite end of the ideological spectrum.

The AARP claims to be a nonpartisan organization, but its positions on issues tend to be overwhelmingly pro-Democrat and liberal. That is neither an endorsement nor a rebuttal; it is merely an observation. Its spokespersons, too, lean Left – witness Jane Fonda and Harry Belafonte.

The AARP is also one of the most powerful lobbying entities in Washington DC, perhaps the most powerful. In 2010, the AARP spent more than $22 million on political lobbying.

AMAC, on the other hand, is unabashedly conservative in its world view. It is decidedly pro-Tea Party – and vehemently anti-Obamacare.

These, according to its Web site, are AMAC’s stated positions:

  • For limited taxes
  • Favors a balanced budget and reduction or elimination of the national debt
  • For limited government
  • Favors medical reform through state regulation and free enterprise
  • Is pro-life
  • Favors immigration reform and supports legal immigration
  • Is pro-Second Amendment and the right to bear arms

While the AARP claims more than 40 million members, AMAC is still working on its first million. But they are an alternative.
