Starbucks. Nike. Amazon. Facebook.
To millions of Americans, these companies embody our nation’s entrepreneurial spirit. However, they also represent the takeover of leftist values in our nation’s largest and most influential corporations – all on the backs of Middle America’s second vote
- Starbucks (1 – Liberal) is perhaps most famous for its opposition to religious liberty – a position which contradicts America’s Judeo-Christian traditions in favor of the LGBT agenda. It also supports gun control and open borders. Facebook (1 – Liberal) blocks
and removes pro-life videos while promoting Planned Parenthood’s life-ending agenda.
- Amazon (1.3 – Liberal) recently removed books promoting the scientifically-sound principle that people with same-sex attractions don’t have to engage in the LGBT lifestyle. (Of course, Amazon has no problem selling books celebrating pedophilia or Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf.)
- And Nike (1.9 – Liberal). They support taxing Middle America to pay for left-wing environmental projects and they back putting bureaucrats in charge of your kids’ education. Worst of all, they pushed racial strife by endorsing Colin Kaepernick’s view that America’s law enforcement is racist instead of dedicated to public safety.
As second vote Americans, you have the power to change this! You have the power to tell these corporations that they should stick to providing their product or service instead of being political actors.
The best way to do this is to use your dollars wisely. Talk with your wallet and your feet.
Shop at Peets (3 – Neutral) and Green Mountain (3 – Neutral) for your coffee instead of Starbucks. Go to Champs (3 – Neutral) and Under Armour (2.3 – Lean Liberal) for your active apparel. Tell Amazon to take a hike by shopping at Overstock.com (4 – Lean
Conservative) when you can.
Facebook, of course, presents a different challenge. They are the dominant player in their space, and Twitter (2.1 – Lean Liberal) is no better at representing your values. You can still stand up to them by e-mailing CEO Mark Zuckerberg and urging him to
stand up for true diversity – not of race or sex, but of thought. Tell him that keeping conservatives off of Facebook hurts his bottom line and even more importantly violates the social media principle of open and free sharing of ideas.
The Company Contrast – Google
Each week 2ndVote will be taking a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system, and then providing some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on today is Google (1 – Liberal).
Google is a search engine and technology company, and continues to be the most visited website in the world year in year out. Google is the parent company of the following brands: YouTube (1 – Liberal), Nik Software, AdMob, ITA Software, and Kaggle. Even though Google is the largest and most used search engine in the world, using their services and products undermines your values based on their continual contributions to the liberal leftist movement.
Google scores a 1 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of their contributions to organizations such as Center for American Progress, Planned Parenthood, Human Rights Campaign, and many more leftist organizations.

Fortunately, when you need to use a search engine, but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative values, there are better alternatives out there. Brave (3 – Neutral), and Reagan (3.3 – Lean Conservative) both offer great options to search the internet without funding the left’s agenda. These websites’ neutral stance on issues and commitment to providing quick and accurate web searches is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to Google.
