Consumer Politics: BuyPartisan

Spending while Supporting Your Ideals

Spending while Supporting Your Ideals

I’m fessing up. There are products I like that I no longer buy. Why? Because I know where the company’s profits go. Now, my purchasing power no longer supports a political party that is not in line with my political beliefs.

More consumers can take advantage of the power of the purse by using the “BuyPartisan” mobile app. With a simple swipe of a product’s barcode, you can find information regarding “political donations of the CEO, Board of Directors, PAC’s and employees of the company you are buying from.”

In short, money is power, so support companies with your ideals when spending your green.

It is money, money, money! Not ideas, not principles, but money that reigns supreme in American politics. – Robert Byrd
