Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

"The liberties of a people never were, nor ever will be, secure, when the transactions of their rulers may be concealed from them." -Patrick Henry

Im writing to urge the SEC's prompt approval of rules requiring public disclosure of political spending by publicly-held companies.

The end of democracy and the defeat of the American Revolution will occur when government falls into the hands of lending institutions and moneyed incorporations. -Thomas Jefferson

Sincerely,

George Bartnick
