Subject: Comment on File Number 4-637

Dear members of the Securities and Exchange Commission:

As a 66 year old veteran I do not want foreign corporations bribing my politicians, like the so called US Chamber of Commerce, or any of the other parasitical corporations who are responsible for our countries financial mess.

All this veteran is asking you do is your job, get the sleazy actors in the shadows out in the open so the people, We the People, E Pluribus Unum know who they are!

That is why I am writing to demanding the SEC issue a rule requiring publicly traded corporations to publicly disclose all their political spending as proxies for Russian, China, Saudi Arabia potentates.

So we can see if China-Mart, I mean Wal-Mart is being bribed to do what China wants with our politicians using the citizens treasury, or Standard Oil being guided by Saudi Arabia in issues that hurt the average American, while profiting those who would like us to end. 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 SEC's web site. Otherwise the highest bidder, enemies or know gets to run our government as this veteran sees it, I did not serve, nor take the oath, to defend such criminality type nonsense!
