Forum Post: Our sold out leaders will NEVER vote the big money out of politics. It's up to us to reduce the corrupt influence.

Reduce your support of individuals, entities, and big corporations that influence our leaders with massive campaign donations, private jet rides, and commercial lobbying efforts. They have a right to be heard just like the rest of us but not with wads of cash, not with free gifts or services, and not behind closed doors.
With no regard whatsoever for partisanship, I'll start the list with a few individuals and entities that are well known to have a strong influence on our screwed up government.
AT&T, Beyonce, Blue Cross, Comcast, Dreamworks, GE, Goldman Sachs, Honeywell International, the Koch brothers, Las Vegas Sands, Lockheed Martin, Oprah Winfrey, Microsoft, the NRA, Wall-Mart, and Warren Buffet.
Do your research. If any of the above sell it or promote it, then don't buy it unless absolutely necessary. and don't believe for one second that any of the above are acting on our behalf. They aren't. They never have. They never will. Those who claim otherwise do it only for show. Their true motives are image and profit.
We need to spread the word far and wide. A half dozen people skipping a product or two won't make a difference.
