Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
It is perfectly obvious to any person with the faculty of reason that there should be a rule that requires publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending. The absurd levels of corruption that now exist in the American political system are proof of the need for such a rule.
Therefore, you, as the responsible body, need to make a rule that requires corporations to inform both shareholders and the general public about how much they spend on politics and who they pay their money to. These reports by corporations on the money they use to corrupt the political process should be immediately posted on the SEC's website, so the whole country can be made aware of who is being corrupted by whom.
