As a libertarian, I dont care who wants to give money to a group, or how that group spends its money. Its none of my business. Your thoughts?
    I'd like to vote, but there was no Libertarian or 'other' option.

    Stop calling them political contributions. They're bribes. If someone gives you money in exchange for passing a law, it's a bribe. We just need to make one simple law, that bribing government officials is illegal, and we might just be able to save our country.

    Actually, you know what, **** it... the U.S. is a sinking ship. After the Monsanto Act, I have lost all hope.
    I've been using the term "investments" instead of contributions.

    It IS what they are. A return is expected.

    Corporate officers couldn't "donate" in the first place if it wasn't.
