    Why do you buy products from companies whose business practices bother you?

    Great question. The answer is "that was the old GOP, the new GOP says that they will create jobs here"

    IMHO the party that commits to more of the following gets my vote:
    1. prohibit short-selling of stocks (companies need capital to expand)
    2. prohibit derivatives and other high-risk options (end the global casino)
    3. make tax breaks based on jobs created and salaries/benefits paid
    4. put strict limits on total compensation to corporate execs (no $400m bonuses)
    5. put the screws to any company that outsources factories/jobs
    6. give tax breaks to anyone who buys US made vehicles
    7. cut federal spending to the bone and roll-back new entitlements, make SS & Medicare solvent long-term.
