I just want to say that you people are the hope for the future of this country. I can't tell you how much you are appreciated by so many of us. Thank you for what you're doing.

I was wondering if you'd made corporate welfare a part of your manifesto; things like sign up fees, termination fees, usage fees - these fees buy us no services, we get no product from them. They are simply a way to line the corporations' pockets and they should be illegal. People on the Right are always screaming about government "handouts" to the poor but the corporations are taking our money as if they were welfare recipients themselves. What right do they have to charge fees for absolutely nothing? Just thought I'd put it out there for discussion.

Didn't you sign a contract saying you would pay those fees?
