AMAC Was Founded to be Your Alternative to AARP

Looking for an alternative to AARP?  You’ve come to the right place.  The Association of Mature American Citizens (AMAC) is a conservative, nonpartisan organization looking out for the interests of Americans 50 years of age and older.  We believe in the traditional values of Faith – Family – Freedom that have made the United States of America the greatest of nations.  We believe that life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness are not empty words, but the fulfillment of the American dream.

AMAC will endeavor to be your advocate to promote commonsense government and to let you keep your hard-earned money in your pocket – not the government’s.

Our new organization continues to grow.  If you’re tired of the other senior organization’s liberal way of thinking, please join AMAC today.  If you like what we are trying to do to protect our way of life, refer your family, friends, and neighbors.  The more people who join AMAC, the more positive impact we can have, and the more discount products and services we’ll be able to negotiate for you.  Remember, there is strength in numbers.

AMAC can be found on Facebook under the name “Association of Mature American Citizens, AMAC”.

Such a pity how this once great nation has nothing but whiners, hypocrites and those that claim they are sickly remember it is when good men do nothing evil men rule. It Don’t Matter anymore because why, as soon as one stands up for their right somebody will be there to say that is wrong. Just as one time if one owned property beyond 20 years it was their home for life and no one could make them move not even the government, that has changed greatly. The IRS, the Medical Institutions, and other Corporational institutions can and have taken homes away from people who have lived not only a life time but generations in a home. We have become close to being a communistic state. All one has to do is say you are wrong and if this person has enough individuals backing them for get justice it ain’t… Read more »

AMAC is made up of a bunch of uninformed idiots who are blinded by right wing ideology and who can’t understand how important it is for politicians to shore up social security, not dismantle it like the boneheads in the Republican Party want to do. I plan on starting a liberal counterpart to your Useless AMAC organization that will actually be partisan and will back candidates that have an interest in doing something for seniors instead of pretending to. The AMAC organization doesnt do anything valuable for seniors . I support Bernie Sanders and you should too. My organization will actually work to advocate for seniors’economic benefit which is more than I can say for AMAC or AARP. Email me for information on how to join.

Tell me, where does it say that Democrats and Liberals are right all the time. They havent been and never will be. This country was founded on conservative principles and yet practically everyone forgets that. Conservative ideology founded this country. try reading the U.S. Constitution. Its the Democrats who ruined things.You have to be a liberal. When you say “uninformed idiots”, right wing ideology”it shows you are a democrat.Bernie is not only a fool but a Socialist nut case. Where is all this grand and glorious money coming from to pay for all the free stuff ? you are as ignorant as Bernie.

Suzanne, I encourage both you and your husband to investigate AMAC. They offer benefits identical to AARP and individuals like Guy Desrochers are attempting to dissuade you based on an issue that liberals, and Bernie Sanders in specific have no true answer for. I suggest you do your own due diligence and ignore the liberal trolls attempting to dissuade you from the political and personal beliefs you support.

Sincerely,

No. The United States of America is not the greatest country on earth. We are a country still younger than most, and we are not perfect. We could use much more humility and compassion for other countries, to foster and encourage understanding and peace for all nations. We need to look at our own shortcomings, and stop judging others so harshly. I feel shame for those in our country who think that we are always righteous, always good. We are not. We, and any other nation or country can always improve in all ways. We are all people, and deserve equal respect. Mutual admiration for things that work, a desire to change the things that don’t, empathy and compassion for those less fortunate; these are the qualities that make a people great. We (the world) are all just people. We are NOT entitled to anything…we must strive to be better… Read more »

That’s not true about both parents required to have been born in the U.S.! The person running for president MUST have been born in the U.S., or if born abroad, at least ONE parent must be an American citizen, such as the case of Ted Cruz. His father was born in Cuba. Cruz himself was born in Canada, but his mother, and possibly his father too by then, was an American citizen.

Its clear that we should have a NO PARTY SYSTEM and we dont need left wing or right wings. We will always be divided. Our goverment will always be at odds and stalling, each party spending 80% of its time simply stonewalling each other. That said AARP has a definite agenda. They backed OBUMMERCARE. Anyone who voted for that fool should reflect on their decision. Obummer deliberately sets people up to become dependent on the government–then who are they going to vote for? Will they bite the hand that feeds them? Wake up people. He has bought the low income, program dependent, and alien votes for Dems of the future. DOnt think he wont be getting something for all that at the price of a world he leaves to his own children. Seriously—can you tie your shoes?

You tell people to Google your name, but Google is a far leftist organization that supports Zerocare, and all things that enable the invasion of privacy. Possibly you could use a company that does not advocate and practice so strongly the gathering of any and all personal information for use by the left (and anyone else who pays for it) in the future.

Al Mostthere

Not very many options (if any) or alternatives to Google. If you worry about privacy there is duckduckgo (add the www and the dot com yourself). There is also Bing. The problem is, Bing is owned by Microsoft which I would call far from conservative. DuckDuckGo is in fact a great search tool if you value your privacy but if you look at some of their search results or their news search hits, like google, you see a lot of skewed results.

I support health care. However Obamacare does not come free. The government is Trillions of dollars in debt so who do you think is going to pay for it. As far as your privacy…. Obamacare has hired a committee of people with no qualifacations concerning medical issues to decide what medical procedures Your doctor can and can not prescribe for you. You can not ask the doctor questions about your husband’s health with out his permission but some stranger is going to know everything about your health. I hope it works for you.

What do you call a country that caters to minorities and vilifies the majority? Whatever you call it, you DON’T call it democratic. I’ve gotten so I actually count the pictures of minorities and compare to the number of pictures of majority folk in AARP’s awful rag. Enlightening! Also check out the radical lib characters they portray on their cover. They treat White folks as if they, too, are a minority. Nasty! The 2010 Census said White folks are 76% of the US population, but to mention that, is “racist”? You can be proud to be anything but White! BS. Majority rule is democracy and anything less is racist and biased and detrimental to democracy. Propaganda belongs in Pravda, not in our media and not at AARP. AARP despises White heritage and traditional American values. They send me notices, and I mark them, “Refused” and return them to the PO.… Read more »

The only thing I use AARP for is roadside assistance auto club. I tried a few years ago, to get it through AMAC and their rates were about 3 or 4 times higher than AARP auto club. At first I signed up but then when they charged over 100 bucks and aarp only charged 50 or so, …… sorry, I don’t have that kind of money to waste., especially when I don’t hardly ever even use the club, This year I used only one of the 5 you get, to come charge my battery in the freeze. And I especially do NOT like the way AARP doesn’t even ask if you want another year, they just charge your card anyway! They don’t send a bill, nothing, just take the money from your account!

I saw a comment or two in favor of ObummerCare- they said they liked it. A friend of mine also likes his ObummerCare, but then again, he’s unemployed, just months away from retirement, needed something to bridge him to Medicare, gets a healthy subsidy from the Indian Tribe he belongs to, etc. Subsidies, subsidies, subsidies- that’s what makes ObummerCare so attractive to some folks. The problem is that most of these people don’t realize that the rest of us are paying for those subsidies and that insurance is just that: “insurance”, which doesn’t pay for everything, Those out of pocket max deductibles carry a price tag too. After all is said and done, ObummerCare isn’t so attractive after all…..

I would love to join. BUT I have reservations. That being said. There are many functions that aarp is into and I mention
AMAC and they have never heard of it? So whats the deal? arrp is all over the TV and the radio in camp grounds, We have Unitedhealthcare as our supplement. I didn’t see that plan. I like that plan. I think you use a health savings plan. You see, I want to be with you. But AMAC has no Clout, No exposure. Not a lot of people know about it! I am a conservative and proud of it. You need to get more exposure for AMAC and more insurance supplements, maybe you need a new CEO?
You got to do better getting the word out about AMAC. Not just yet, but soon.

Stan,
AARP has been around a long time with no competition so naturally all the retirees joined. With the large volume of retirees, they have more bargaining power, and they have so much money, they even have hired personnel who appear on TV to talk about their programs. Those of us who have joined AMAC have done so, because our conservative values are not in line with AARP’s liberal agendas. Why not stay with United Health Care, and become a member of AMAC (its only $16./hr) to stand up as a proud conservative. This way you can have your cake and eat it too. Clout comes in numbers.

Any notion that AARP is not a liberal organization is hysterical. Have been a member for years and hold my nose every renewal period. Admit to wanting the tiny discounts involved on my cell service and United. However, the lefty bias in articles and editorials is rampant. It is okay to be biased, but denying that it exists is less than honest. Would love to see a mass exodus to a viable alternative. It will take time. I will join.

FYI, I had been a member of AARP for 5 years and will be switching to AMAC. I already dropped AARP and Hartford Insurance will continue to cover me at the same rate as when I was with AARP. You do not have to be a member of AARP to get their insurance.

Todd

Dave, I am an insurance agent who is authorized to sell the AARP plan through The Hartford and The Hartford actually has two auto products… one that you refer to as the AARP endorsed plan and another that is written without the AARP discount. I suspect that if they check and find your AARP membership is no longer in force, you’ll be asked to renew your membership or be moved to the other program (without the AARP discount). That being said, the discount for being a member of AARP is small. Therefore, if The Hartford is the carrier that fits you best, pricing isn’t THAT much more on their regular plan. Secondly, as I sell for many different carriers, I often find coverage and pricing that is comparable or that beats the AARP endorsed plan through The Hartford. If someone solely purchases the plan endorsed by the AARP, without checking… Read more »

I looked into AMAC since I could never join AARP.
I remember when my father was alive, AARP kept sending him renewal notices and my father, suffering from a bit of dementia, would pay the bil 3-4 times per year. My wife called and complained and accused them of preying on the elderly. They never refunded the payments.
Now, with all the liberal support they give Obama’s disaster “Obama Care”, I think most senior citizens should vote with their feet and leave.
AMAC is for me. Support the Constitution and the American Way.

John, Your grammar is fine and so is your spelling, but people who make snap decisions about a person on spelling and grammar is arrogant and foolish. I think spelling and grammar are important but I would never judge someone on that.

I am glad that God will judge us and not you.

Diana, the reality is, if a person cannot master a simple elementary level of the language that he presumably grew up speaking, how can he be capable of higher level thinking? We have spell check on computers, dictionaries are still in print, and there are plenty of people with sufficient intelligence who are more than willing to help those who are unsure of their spelling or grammar, but who aspire to be correct. Yes, it IS important!

AARP is a for-profit retirement company. Why do you think they have so many offerings?

Bill

AARP is an insurance company. When Obamacare was still being put together, they reached out to the White House and told them they would support it and would convince their membership to do so. Why? Because they will sell an additional $500 million dollars in insurance to it’s members. Don’t be fooled, AARP is nothing but a insurance company that claims to be in support of seniors and their interests. They knew Obamacare would cut $700 million from Medicare, but supported it anyway because of their profit outlook. I don’t mind anyone being in business and making a profit, but feel AARP misleads their members by not being totally truthful about the fact they own the insurance company that sells policies to their members.

I would love to switch from AARP to AMAC, but I have tried to find out what insurance companies AMAC deals with, and whether or not I can get comparable Home insurance through AMAC. I live in a mobil home that is in the 100 year flood plain, and must keep flood insurace. I get this insurance very cheaply through the AARP Hartford insurance plan at this time. I also have my auto and marine insurance through them. I hate helping to back the AARPS liberal policies, but I can’t afford to let my insurances go unhjless I can find something comparable. Can any one give me any information about this? I would be forever grateful if I can find an alternitive to AARP!!!

Brenda,
Check with a local State Farm agent. I don’t know if they sell flood insurance, but I’ve yet to find a company that is cheaper with the same product as them. I’ve been insured with them since 1977 and every time someone tells me another insurance company is cheaper I check and find SF is still cheaper. I’ve had a few claims, including damage from a tornado that did extensive damage to my house, and they are fair in paying also.
They also give discounts for multiple policy holders, so if you have more than type of insurance with them they discount your total premium.

Brenda, The AARP and AMAC have similar benefits to offer. However it is only in very rare instances that being a member of either of these groups will save you much more money on insurance then you can usually be able to negotiate as an older established person. I am almost 50 and have joined AMAC for political reasons as much as anything else.Unlike the other side of the isle I believe in more choices, more voices more options is better for America.I find it quite interesting that there are so many post from people who have no interest in AMAC , but only seem interested in ranting about the right. Richard ? If you don’t think that the AARP is liberal then you are either misinformed or uninformed sir.

I have to disagree with statements on making use of USAA. As retired veteran, after 19y6m28d, the price quotes for coverage offered through USAA are more then not beaten. It may be due to my geographical location, but they are not competitive, nor less costly.

AARP supported Obama care bacause they made tons of money off of it and that was when the majority of AARP members didn’t agree with it. That should tell you how liberal they are. Plus, I have a high-school friend who is a top research analyst with AARP–all of her friends/co-workers and herself are as liberal as Jane Fonda. And, totally ignorant to what’s really going on in politics. Did you all see that the AFL-CIO, unions, and even Bill Clinton are saying how bad the Obama Care is and that it has to be changed? Yep. YOU WERE Wrong all ALONG AND the conservatives were right. If AARP supported it for their members, what does that tell you about the lack of intelligence of the people who “work for you”?

You really should balance your information from all sides. I am NOT a leftist, never have been, but continue to get email from the left all of the time. In 98 percent of the mailings I get, they denigrade the Koch brothers. If the Koch brothers are spending as much as the twisted left say that they are, they’d have to be in control of the entire world’s financial resources. And isn’t it interesting that they NEVER mention the contributions and involvement in numerous socialist/communist groups supported by the evil George Soros? You need to wake the heck up, Richard, and do it fast. Supporting these socialist/facist/marxist/communist types will offer you absolutely no protection when the proverbial brown matter hits the fan, and it’s coming.

What a jerk!!!!! AARP sold out its members when they backed Obama care so they could sell supplemental insurance. They did not care what we wanted, they only cared about the bottom line and that is not an organization I choose to participate in. I ripped up my AARP and now looking for somebody I can trust.

PatriceHall

I don’t know why AARP would back ACA so they could sell supplemental insurance. I have had supplemental insurance through them for years. And as far as the comment about the vaunted $700 billion (which used to be $500 billion – grew like Romney’s nose) that was supposedly “taken” from Medicare, that is a crock and if you research it somewhere other than Fox you will find it dramatically strengthened Medicare, gave us a lot of preventive care, and lengthened its life for some period of years.

This organization is backed in part by Newt Gingrich and Shaun Hannity so I am just going to sit back and watch you guys end up supporting the privatization of Social Security and the Paul Ryan $8000 voucher that will replace Medicare. Problem is you will take those of us who really listen and know what is happening down with you.

Obama is a strong horse when weakening America, and a weak horse when strengthening America. I couldn’t list here all he’s done that has hurt America. It really does reach a point when we must conclude that it isn’t stupidity, it isn’t ineptitude; it isn’t partisan – It’s something else that causes America to come out on the short side of every Obama decision.

So I’ll ask you;
If Obama was the enemy, with ALL the word implies, WHAT would he do differently than what he’s done, or is doing? ……. The enemy is in our midst!

Best comment all day. Truthful. I didn’t have to watch Fox news to see what they did with these programs. Their lies and results speak for themselves.I will not support AARP who supports a healthcare law that that was pushed through without knowing what’s in the law. Also the fact is Obama said he would not raise our taxes, so now we have the IRS involved and forcing us to pay a penalty for not taking the insurance. I know more people than not ,that actually liked the insurance they had and than it was dropped due to the regulations, or companies decided they were not going to provide it anymore .
Now these same people are going to be forced to pay double or triple what they previously paid. They pushed it through purposely knowing this so as to work towards a one payor system.

How will AARP benefit from Obamacare? At the present time health insurance for Americans is charged 28% administrative costs by the private sector, rating us #1 in healthcare costs. We receive healthcare that is rated #37 compared with the rest of the industrialized world. Obamacare would bring administrative costs down to the 7% charged by the VA, which provides better, faster and less costly healthcare. I can’t see how we would be better off keeping things as they are now…….which in reality should be a national scandal!

If anyone wants to see what ‘Socialist Medical Care’ looks like, one needs to look no further VA hospital. They are run and funded by the Federal Government.
DO NOT misinterpret my statement. There are caring medical professionals within the VA……BUT the Federal Government causes the problems within the system. It took three(3) months to secure an appointment to see my ‘assigned PCP’ and another two(2) to schedule the required procedures.

With the VA it took me about 4 months to get a cataract removed. Normal, non-VA time period is about 2 1/2 weeks from what I have heard. Understaffed, overcrowded, underfunded, not state-of-the-art. I opted for medicare, even though I am covered by the VA because the nearest VA hospital is 63 miles away. I converted from medicare to Advantage Plan through AARP. 1 1/2 years ago they cancelled me and said they weren’t going to do Plan C anymore (I guess I was not profitable enough with the US going into OsamaCare). Now that I’m with Humana, AARP is sending me mail wanting me to join their Advantage Plan. Say what?!?! AARP is definitely commie, leftist. Upcoming elections will be easy choice form me: If you are an elected official and voted for ObamaosamaCare I will NOT be voting for you.

Disgruntled Veteran

I am a vet.. and I also worked at a large VA Medical Center.. If you truly believe “..7% charged by the VA, which provides better, faster and less costly healthcare…” you are on some good drugs.

VA attempts to provide great care to those who NEED it, and the vets who financially cannot go to other doctors get great care. Most of the staff have their hearts in the right place… VA does not pay staff like civilian hospitals and government buracracy gets in the way of doing things the best for the patient.
Me I went with BCBS health insurance and go to the civilian hospital across the street.

Chris S.

The current administrations Affordable Care Act would have us believe that the cost of medical care is out of reach for far too many people due to the free market model. This same administration would have us believe that a new government bureaucracy with mandatory annual budgetary increases, providing the previous budget has been fully utilized, will do a better, less costly job than the insurance and medical industry alone. Remember, figures don’t lie, but liars do figure.
