Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

Corporate money has taken over our democracy and has drowned out the voice of the individual and the majority of our population realizes this. If we fail to make reform, we will eventually end up at another revolution. Sometimes, that's what citizens have to do in order to preserve to make sure the the democracy belongs to the people.

I’m writing to urge the commission’s prompt approval of rules requiring public disclosure of political spending by publicly-held companies. Disclosure is vital to the SEC’s responsibility to ensure that investors have the information they need to make sound decisions about when and where to put their money. Shareholders also have a right to know how companies in their investment portfolios are investing that money, particularly when the spending falls outside the company’s normal business activity.

Thank you for considering my comment.
