Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

I am writing to urge the SEC to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending.

Both shareholders and the public must be fully informed as to how much the corporation spends on politics and which candidates are being promoted or attacked. Disclosures should be posted promptly on the SEC's web site.

Thank you for considering my comment.

A non scripted comment to think about; I want to be able to promote the brands that support my way of life, and of course fiund alternates to those who are against it. To keep everything as progressive and keep true competition in the marketplace (not monopolies) they should disclose who they are supporting and attacking so I can better choose what items/brands to buy. Thank you for your diligent work on this matter.
