Securities and Exchange Comm.

Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,

Our democratic process is in deep trouble when money talks and nobody walks. You are in a position to help change direction by requiring greater transparency. Pls. issue a ruling requiring publicly traded corporations to disclose any and all political contributions or affiliations. With Congress tied in knots, the SEC is in a position to step in where the fools fear to tread. All I'm asking is that you require corporations to disclose how they spend their money on politics. "Freedom of speech" is a far cry from "secret speech." Please do what you can to strengthen and straighten out our democratic process
