Subject: File No. 4-637

February 2, 2013

Dear Members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

How easy it is to for political terrorists and the "well heeled radicals" to determine election results, when they are insulated from disclosure. It is SO easy to initiate lies and more lies when you are "untouchable".

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.
