A solution for keeping your cash from left-wing corporations

cash registerIt seems as though conservative consumers can’t find a national retail store that doesn’t support left-wing causes but a watchdog group has a solution. 

"We always recommend through 2nd Vote that people shop locally," advises Dr. David L Black of 2nd Vote, a conservative watchdog for corporate activism. "Shop with the people that you go church with, or that you are in Rotary Club with, or your local organizations."

Why? The further your dollar is removed from your community, 2nd Vote argues, the more it engages in behavior that you likely oppose. 

"Tax dollars go off to Washington, D.C. and then we're dictated from Washington, D.C. on what we should do locally," Black says. "That happens, too, when your dollars go off to these ‘big box’ corporations."

American shoppers have let their voices be heard recently: Procter and Gamble announced a whopping $5 billion in losses in 2019, when the public responded to a Gillette TV ad that attacked "toxic masculinity," and a second ad in with a transgender "son" was taught to shave by "his" father.  

Meanwhile, there are tens of thousands of small businesses that are operated by church-going conservative Christians who, in fact, are competing againt the big box stores to survive. 

Black admits it is not always easy: Shoppers do have their own buying habits and preferences. Still, 2nd Vote continues to educate consumers on where powerful companies stand on issues such as LGBT activism and climate change.

"What we're dealing with as conservatives and Christians is that for 50 years we've allowed the Left to structure our society in a way in which we are actually funding the attack on our values," says Black. "2nd Vote for nine years has been focused on retail dollars and donated dollars trying to educate people on how this is structured and to, whenever possible, stop putting your dollars into basically the offering plate to these radical efforts."
