A false narrative among the Left is that you cannot provide great customer service without being “woke” enough. Chick-fil-A discovered this when its recent abandonment of socially conservative charity groups was greeted with dismissal by the radical LGBT group GLAAD. Apparently, in the eyes of the woke Left, being America’s most polite fast-food chain, providing quality […]
About 2ndvote .com
Who We Are
If you’re like a lot of us, you cast your first vote in an election every couple of years, and wonder if you’re making a difference. Whether you know it or not, you’re casting a vote every day and making a difference, sometimes in support of causes and issues that you would never support on your own. That’s where 2ndVote comes in.
The Conservative Watchdog for Corporate Activism
Launched in 2013 upon learning that March of Dimes donations were being funneled to Planned Parenthood, Dr. David L. Black, a scientist by trade, became curious to know what other liberal organizations were being funded by consumer spending and donations. Our founder would never fund or vote for Planned Parenthood with his 1st vote at the ballot box, and therefore neither did he want to with his “2ndVote” through everyday spending and giving.
As the conservative watchdog for corporate activism, 2ndVote exposes the corporations and organizations funding liberal advocacy. By putting big business on watch through our extensive research on the most important issues of the day, our mission is to expose the corporate influence on major policy decisions and turn the tide on the attacks on conservative values and principles.

Another week, another corporation lost to the “woke” leftist crowd. This time it’s Hallmark’s (2.1) television station, which managed to alienate everyone in the culture wars by accepting a “wedding” ad featuring a lesbian couple…then rejecting the ad…then apologizing for rejecting the ad. And all this just after the company bowed to activist pressure to feature LGBT propaganda in […]
Chick-fil-A’s abandonment of The Salvation Army has left a poor taste in the mouths of 2ndVote Americans. Thankfully, other companies refuse to bow to the Left’s absurdities – such as Hanes (3.9), which for the 10th year in a row is donating 250,000 pairs of socks to groups which fight homelessness, including The Salvation Army. Hanes is functionally neutral in its corporate donations. […]
Liberal activists often claim that the media has a “corporate” bias. In their belief system, the fact that corporate-owned media outlets often report favorably about the wildly successful free market system, slowing the growth of government spending, and keeping taxes low are “corporate” biases instead of common sense. In fact, the media’s real corporate bias […]
Three years ago, the National Basketball Association (NBA) caved to LGBT extremists who wanted to force North Carolina’s businesses, schools, and local governments to allow men into women’s restrooms and locker rooms. The NBA All-Star Game was supposed to be held in North Carolina that year. Thanks to the NBA’s lack of courage, it didn’t take […]
The Center for American Progress is one of the nation’s most influential liberal think tanks. It supports abortion until birth, wants to reduce gun ownership, and has fully endorsed the high-tax, open-borders, and LGBT agendas of the Left. So why are WalMart (1.3 – liberal) and NASCAR (2.7 – lean liberal) betraying their conservative customers by joining hands with CAP’s liberal agenda? Taking your guns […]
The United States’ Founders understood that law-abiding, decent people must be able to protect themselves from criminals and governments. They enshrined this right into the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Regretfully, leaders of 145 of America’s corporations – some of them industry and cultural leaders – just decided that sucking up to the “woke” […]
Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system, and then provides 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 this week is McDonald’s (1.3 – […]
The NFL just can’t seem to get out of its own way. After years of inaction on racial strife caused by the Colin Kaepernick-led protests, it delayed a rule requiring players to stand for the National Anthem while sending $90 million to organizations with left-wing social agendas. It let players claim America is a racist nation without consequences, but muzzled […]
By the end of 2019, two of America’s leading banks are expected to create a new mega-bank: Truist, a merger of BB&T (2.1 – Leaning Liberal) and SunTrust (2.3 – Leaning Liberal). The new company will serve 10 million Americans and be worth $66 billion, making it the nation’s sixth-largest bank. Truist is meant to convey “trust” and “true.” As the merger […]
Levi Strauss ( 1 – Liberal) is the world’s largest seller of jeans. They make billions of dollars off of Middle America’s desire to wear comfortable, affordable jeans in many walks of life – and this past March, they made even more money when they used Middle America’s jean purchases to become publicly traded. However, they hate Middle […]
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 consumers. Starbucks (1 – Liberal) is perhaps most famous for its opposition to […]
Leftists are at it again – declaring that corporate America must bow in every way to their agenda or face their wrath. In this case, online activists and some staff at Wayfair (3.3 – Lean Conservative) and Ogilvy (3 – Neutral) have demanded that their leadership stop doing business with U.S. agencies which house immigrant children separated at the border. Twitter […]
Planned Parenthood is America’s largest abortion company. It kills hundreds of thousands of babies each year, scarring women, damaging fathers and destroying families. It also just fired its first physician CEO in a half-century and replaced her with a political activist. Its famed former CEO Cecile Richards, who stepped down last year, was a political activist, not […]
Online leftists can’t help themselves. No matter how “woke” a company or person is, they are never “woke” enough to live in a leftist’s world. This week’s example is the boycott over Home Depot (1.9 – Liberal) co-founder Bernie Marcus’ recent statement about plans to donate to President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign. The boycott trended for at least two days this […]
