Skip to comments.Choose The Blue Use Your Power -- ChooseTheBlue! (List of Companies' Donation created by Dems)
Posted on 12/02/2004 12:14:46 PM PST by paudio
We are ordinary Americans who are concerned about what is happening to our country and constitution. Prior to this last election we had not been politically involved beyond voting. Following the November, 2004 elections we felt powerless when the small margin of victory was claimed as a large mandate by the Republican White House, Senate, and House of Representatives. We wanted to have our voices heard, and felt that one way of doing that was to direct our spending towards companies who support candidates and issues in which we believe. Many of our friends thought this a great idea and we started building ChooseTheBlue.com. Our research has highlighted to us the stunning amount of money that corporations donated this election cycle. It has been fascinating to trace donations and to learn what products belong to which companies. Our goal is to provide people with information about political donations so they can make informed choices about where to shop. We believe that we can make a difference by adjusting our spending.

Cool! Now I know who not to buy from, and they did the legwork!!
Me too. Now, I know which products to avoid.
and even smaller margine of victory (clintoon only got 40% of the popular vote in 92) was claimed as a HUGE mandate
hypocrites are just awful- no I see why Dante reserve the lowest ring in hell for them
I was about to post the same thing.
Glad to see activision is red. They make the best ps2 games.
The left's hypocrisy and elitism is sickening.
There was an item on "The Grapevine" last night on Brit Hume's show about how the "MoveOn.org" ninnies are contemplating their next move now that Bush has been reelected. One suggestion is that they all stop buying things as a means of bringing down the US economy. Frankly, I hope they follow this option, and that they include food on the list of things they refuse to buy.
Looking at the grocery store list, it looks like the dims are not going to be eating.
" we felt powerless when the small margin of victory was claimed as a large mandate by the Republican White House,"
And if the democrats had won with the same margin we would be hearing about how it was in numbers comparable to the population of some entire states.
We can't boycott them, but they can boycott all they like.
This is great
Don King gave 57,000 to republicans and 33,000 to dims.

Looks like we're going to have to drop T-Mobile.
OTOH, Saturn and Oldsmobile are red - YAY!
I bet the dims get most of their $$ from coercive union dues and a few misguided performers.
Just in time for the holiday shopping season. Woo Hoo!!
At this point, it looks like the democrat plan is to emigrate to foreign countries, secede from the union, demand endless and pointless recounts and stop buying things. Great! I fully support them in these endeavors.
JFK beat Nixon by a much slimmer margin. Does that mean "Camelot" had no mandate. Seems to me JFK is supposed to be some kind of Liberal demigod.
Looking at the grocery store list, it looks like the dims are not going to be eating.And they can't even grow their own food.
How can they buy food if they are dead or in prison?
LOL! Meanwhile, I'll be eating at Kentucky Fried this afternoon, just before going to Safeway to pick up some Stagg's chili, Sargento cheese and Dreyer's ice cream. Yum!
The same way they vote from the graveyard.
21% Dem ( $74,026)
79% Republican ($278,481)
This middle-class Bush voter gives a valediction to Arby's and a big hello to KFC, McDonald's, Wendy's, A&W, and Taco Bell.
The Fox group sent blue and the NBC group went red in similar proportions. Go figure!
I sent along a nice note thanking them for their time and effort! lol
Shocked. I know a retired Shell (District or regional) manager. He is as hardline pro-GOP as it gets - unless its a gun grabber.
A great list - to see who gets my $$$ and who will not.
6% Dem -- $3,498
94% Republican -- $54,802
Please take a deep breath and consider ignoring this. It's meaningless. Read the fine print. The list includes individual donations. It has little to do with the companies policies. My company, for instance, is listed as Blue but has a long standing policy to make no donations. Employees are of course free to donate as they wish. Because you don't know if the money flow that qualifies one as "Blue" is from lots of small employee contribution, or maybe a few execs with big donations, or even if the company itself has donated I think it's not useful. Big companies have millions of employees. Ford Motors might be a strong free market, conservative leaning company in terms of their public policy, but they do have millions of union employees.
It's just noise.
Ford Motors might be a strong free market, conservative leaning company in terms of their public policy, but they do have millions of union employees.What's your theory on why Ford went 71% red? (Not trying to be a smart alek... Just curious.)
I don't find it as just noise. Yes, they put together the donation of employees and company. But, if the combination is more than 90% (many of the figures show this), I think it tells you something. We simply need to be careful in using it, that's all.
Oh that was great fun! All that RED!! What are the whining ninnies going to do? Most of the very important servicies fall into the red, it's going to be tough on 'em. What a bunch of idiots.
I tend to agree with you...
Though there are some cases where I just can't buy from some companies due to their strong stand on issues. For example, I still can't bring myself to buy Levi's products because of the company's contributions to gun-grabbers. There's some others I can name, but I'm sure you get my point.
Argh!!! Friggin' Costco is blue. I do a lot of shopping there...but Lowe's is coming soon to my neighborhood. Not a direct competitor, but it provides another option.
Few people are as sensitive as I. I'd not want to offend Babs Streisand, for example, by offering her $8 for a movie ticket when she knows that I hold her in the same regard as slug slime. I'd like to know in advance whether she tried to use her celebrity to influence the election and be able to decide on my expenditure on that basis. If my position differs from hers, I'd not want to offend her. The lefies would call my concept a "black list" but that is just racism on their part.
F-150, F-250, F-350
Again Costco has tens of thousands of employees, each of whom is required by law to put their name and employers name on the political contribution form. So 3000 Costco employees give to Kerry. Does that make Costco Democratic. I don't think so.

Ha Ha. Great post!
Precisely. How nice of them to do the leg work for us. In another month or so, these supposedly "blue" companies will be suing these people.
