Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

Our form of government rightly uses the secret ballot for the individual to vote. However, when corporations can covertly spend large funds to influence the outcome of elections, we are dealing with the secret ballot box. That is not the same thing as the secret ballot and needs some kind of checks, controls, and transparency.

Thank you for considering my comment.
