Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:
I, PERSONALLY, THINK THAT NO DONATIONS SHOULD BE ACCEPTED.
All election campaigning should be free -a civic duty for the papers/ radio/television.
This country has been one of haves and havenots long enough. Let's get back to the equality scenario that this country was supposed to be.
Greed is the result of our current broken system. I would like to fix it. Are you up to the challange?
It's long past time to end secret political spending by corporations.
So I strongly support the SEC issuing a rule in the near future that would require publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their spending on political activities.
Both shareholders and the public deserve to know how much a given corporation spends on politics (directly and through intermediaries), and which candidates are being promoted or attacked.
Thank you for considering my comment.
