Vote with Cash!

Thanks to the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission (2010), corporations now have unlimited spending power in elections. Our patronage makes corporate political influence possible, and now, more than ever, our everyday purchases have broader electoral consequences.

Everyday we vote with our cash.

At a minimum we can avoid the worst right-wing supporters. Progressive companies (are growing in number), and there is help to find them.

Liberal Consumers is an organization whose "...purpose is to provide liberals and progressives with a resource for finding companies and products that support progressive candidates and policies." Their website is: http://www.liberalconsumer.com/

As elections draw near, we need to put our money where our values are.
