Michael Reagan, the eldest son of former US President Ronald Reagan, has accused people who use email services from Apple, AOL, Google, Hotmail and Yahoo! of "supporting the Obama, Pelosi and Reid liberal agenda" and ultimately "hurting our country". His answer, for those supporters of what he calls true "Reagan Conservative Values" is the first conservative email service provider .
In a truly bizarre attack on some of the most successful and popular providers of email across the planet, Michael Reagan insists that every time someone with conservative political views uses their email from these companies they are "helping the liberals".
Apple, AOL, Google, Microsoft (through Hotmail) and Yahoo! are, Reagan says "huge supporters financially and with technology of those that are hurting our country". By establishing an alternative email provider at Reagan.com, the politician reckons that supporters of the "Greatest Conservative of all, my father Ronald Reagan" can support true conservative values.
"When you purchase your email address @Reagan.com you are supporting truly conservative causes and the proceeds from this conservative initiative will help me promote true Reagan values to win back our country in November and in 2012" Michael Reagan promises.
A Reagan.com email account will set you back $39.95 per year from today. For that, you might expect to get a heck of a lot better support than the free mail service providers. But if you read the terms of service agreement it clearly states: "we are under no obligation to provide you with any support, error corrections, updates, upgrades, bug fixes and/or enhancements of the Service".
Is it just me, or are politics the last thing on your mind when you are choosing an email provider? No matter what your political leanings, surely all you really want from your email provider is, well, an email service that is easy to use, reliable, secure and with good customer technical support. The big five named by Reagan have achieved their success by offering just that, and offering it for free I might add.
