7. I will contribute to NO political candidate...

...who continues the slide of our country into Fascism. Corporations have purchased our government--and have
bribed most of our politicians. Our Congress is unable to work for "We The People". They are too busy
giving the corporations whatever is on their wish list--deregulation, relaxed policies, tax breaks, and legislation
that makes them rich beyond their wildest dreams.

I'm done. I'll donate to individual candidates, but I will not throw my money down a rat hole--and support candidates
who won't even lift a finger to save our democracy.

Social issues and wedge issues are of little consequence to me. That would be like worrying about the landscaping
on a house that is burning down.

We need to douse the fires of corruption--or democracy burns to the ground.

Any candidate works toward that--and they've got my money, my volunteer time and my support.
