I am writing to urge you to issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending. As a voter, I want to know who is bankrolling the candidates, so I can make the best-informed decision possible for my country.
Frankly, I am concerned that foreign corporations and other entities that may not have our nation's best interest at heart are contributing to American politicians in the hopes of getting legislation passed that favors them at the expense of the US. Think of it this way: Why bother to attack our country militarily when all you have to do is buy off some politicians and judges who will help destroy our country from the inside out?
Political contributors should not want to hide in the shadows - unless, of course, their intentions are not good.
