I am deeply concerned about the influence of corporate money on our electoral process.
In particular, I am appalled that, because of the Supreme Courtís ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, publicly traded corporations can spend investorís money on political activity in secret.
I am writing to urge the Securities and Exchange Commission 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 SECís web site.
The Prime Law (The Fundamental of Protection) Preamble
1) The purpose of human life is to prosper and live happily.
2) The function of government is to provide the conditions that let individuals full fill that purpose.
3) The Prime Law guarantees those conditions by forbidding the use of initiatory force, fraud, or coercion by any person or group against any individual, property, or contract.
No person, group of persons, or government shall initiate force, threat of force, or fraud against any individualís self, property, or contract.
Force is morally-and-legally justified only for protection from those who violate Article 1.
No exceptions shall exist for Articles 1 and 2.
The Prime Law is the fundamental, natural law of protection (that directs all decisions and actions of the Twelve Visions Party) and is not open to amendment or change.
Thank you for considering my comment.
