4. Steve Schmidt is right, starve the Republican Beast

We are all in this fight. Our spending habits can impact corporate BOD's and CEO policies and political giving.

We must make our voices clearly heard.

!5 years ago it was postulated this would all happen through shareholder votes, but the reality is it takes big money to even get an issue registered for an annual vote, and the big mutual and hedge funds don't poll shareholders proportionally, they just vote to ensure more profits are wrung from their investments. So greed fuels greed.

We're at a different point now.

How bad are things at Home Depot? I don't know, but when I was there a few weeks back, I paused to write down a few features of some plywood quarters. 20 seconds later I was accosted by an employee, "Can we help you find something?" It's what managers are told to instruct their employees when sales are soft. So we're having an impact.
