Choose the Blue

Saturday, December 4th, 2004 · No Comments

It’s all about the Benjamins.

Politics, like many other things in life, gets its lifeblood from money. We can all make contributions directly to the political candidate or party of choice, but think about this: Every time you go to a store, buy gas, pay your utility bills, you’re indirectly making a contribution to a political party, whether you like it or not.

Want the skinny on which companies support which political party? Want to make more informed consumer buying decisions?

Now you can with Choose the Blue.

You can search for a brand or browse shopping categories. What’s interesting (and expected) is to see how many oil companies are straight up red. In fact, of those oil companies tracked, only Shell Oil leans Democratic (57% of contributions are blue vs. 43% red).

So along with boycotting brands like Kraft and Bocca (owned by Philip Morris), next time you need gas or a new TV, be sure to Choose the Blue.
