Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

November 26, 2012

Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
When government with all its institutions sheds the last vestige of loyalty to the American public, legislating infamously for the corrupt and the powerful, the repressive measures a part of the Patriot Act and the NDAA will be carried out. Will they not? I am trying to understand the delusional and cowardly stance of what is called big government. I think it has its origin in big government for big interests. I must say I resent being part of a constituency that's being carved up like ham by madmen who understand virtually nothing except the machinations of obsessive power. We are destined to fall unless we have real representation.
I am writing to urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.

Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much the corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.

Thank you for considering my comment.
