### You seem to imply that corporations are doing wrong by
influencing elections, yet your own influence in this matter is
benign. I would say that peremptorily demanding a voice in other
people's lives (which is what elections amount to) is just immoral,
and by participating in elections you are making yourself as
blameworthy as whoever purchased TARP from Obama and Bush.
