Subject: File No. 4-637

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

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.o

Its wrong that corporations can buy our elections, what's next?  Outside business such as Iran purchasing our elections, controlling and taking over our nation?  WE must stop this action now, before it goes too far!

Thank you for considering my comment.
