Subject: File No. 4-637

February 2, 2013

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

I am entirely tired of you folks "at the top" playing the average Americas for suckers.   Somehow, even you so called regulators are part of the problem.   This must either end or we need to find another way to manage these problems and that other way will not include you folks.   START ACTING LIKE AMERICANS!

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.
