Putting your money where your vote is

Post by lance » Dec 22nd 2004, 10:32 pm

Hey all,

Boycotts occassionally work if enough people observe them. Having grown up in an activist household I have been raised with a few: Folgers & Campbells come immediately to mind.

Stumbled across a couple of sites that tell you where large companies send their political dollars. Amazon.com gave 60% of their political donations to the GOP, Walmart gave 80%. Meanwhile Costco gave 98% to the Dems and Starbucks gave 100% to the Democrats.

How badly do you want that DVD or peppermint mocha? Or would you feel better getting it from a vendor who supports your political point of view?
