Use Barnes&Noble not Amazon

B&N donates 92% of its donations to Democrats and 0 to Republicans.

Amazon donates 59% to GOP.

3. But Amazon founder Jeff Bezos just contributed $2.5 million to support marriage equality

So that should also factor in.

4. 9% differential? (Amazon's founder has pledged mllions in support of Same-Sex marriage)

Amazonís Founder Pledges $2.5 Million in Support of Same-Sex Marriage
By MICHAEL D. SHEAR

Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com, and his wife, MacKenzie, have agreed to donate $2.5 million to help pass a same-sex marriage referendum in Washington State, instantly becoming among the largest financial backers of gay marriage rights in the country.

I don't like that they fund RETHUGS at all, but if the difference is less than 10% and with the overt support of gay marriage, perhaps that argues on behalf of using both?

AND, I should add, to purchase locally when at all possible...?
