YOU might be Contributing to Right Wing Political Campaigns
Unintentionally of course. When you purchase the products or services of these twenty-three companies, your money is helping to finance the Far Right.
We all need to be aware of whom we’re encouraging and enabling when we make our purchases — and “vote” accordingly. For just one example: when you stay at a Marriott Hotel, you’re giving money to a CEO who’s already contributed one million dollars (and counting) to Mitt Romney. And Ritz-Carlton is a subsidiary of Marriott.
If you go to Las Vegas and stay at either the Venetian Resort Hotel or the Palazzo Hotel, you’re giving money to Sheldon Adelson, the glorified Chinese pimp who’s already contributed $71 million to every rightwing cause imaginable.
If you’re looking for a restaurant, skip the Waffle House unless you want to help out Karl Rove’s American Crossroads. If you go to the gym, make it something other than Gold’s Gym, whose co-founder has already contributed more than a million dollars to Karl Rove and Mitt Romney.
Dixie Cups and Brawny Paper Towels are both owned by Koch Industries. Enough said.
Anyway, I hope you’ll bookmark the linked article and use it as a guide for which companies not to patronize.
