Choose the Red

Some disgruntled 'blue' folks have gone to the trouble of grabbing contribution data from the Federal Election Commission and put together a website (click title) that tracks the contribution patterns of firms in various industries. According to them: compiles information from third party sources primarily to show certain reported spending by political action committees connected with a corporation and by that corporation's employees as political contributions, in each case related to recent federal elections. .

If each American who voted "Blue" in 2004 spends $100 in 2005 on products of a corporation that by reason of its employees' or connected political action committees' political contributions supported "Blue" over "Red," $5 billion in revenues would be shifted to "Blue" supporting corporations!

This will be noticed! Choose where you buy ... and make a difference!!!

Well. Thanks for the help.

I like McDonalds, Wal-Mart and Outback Steakhouse. Respectively, they contributed RED 80%, 80% and 98%. Alternatively, Starbucks, home of overroasted and vastly overpriced coffee and the ridiculously priced Whole Foods--where I couldn't find a dozen eggs for less than $3.50--went 84% and 75% respectively BLUE.
