The devastation in the Congo is unbelievable and undeniable. I shudder to think that the people of the United States would sit back and watch without doing anything, especially when the opportunity presents itself so clearly to do something.
If the SEC would fail to adopt the provisions of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act they would deny those who wish to take action by demanding conflict free electronics that opportunity. Purchasing conflict free electronics may seem a small and insignificant part but it may be the only part that some can do. Those who can do more will but please do not take opportinuty for me to do my part away from me.
