    Politics is a popularity contest. If you want to win, people need to like you. For corporations to be liked, they need to be good neighbors. It is in the corporation’s best interest to be liked by its neighbors. Corporate social responsibility begins with supporting charities – of course it doesn’t end there. Some corporations recruit volunteers from within their ranks to do work within the communities at events, etc. That involves giving money responsibly to local and national charities. There’s nothing wrong in giving a donation, in fact, they are much needed, especially in today’s economy. Whether or not a donation is accepted, every member of every organization is entitled to their own opinion, as long as we continue to protect our freedom of speech and right to vote!

    Some of these phony “charities” could corrupt the political process. They could even lead to wasteful or otherwise superfluous government programs. Many of these “charitable foundations” might use this money, perhaps in indirect ways, to corrupt politicians into voting for bills that benefit them(but not necessarily their constituents).
