16 Oct Charity Season Is Upon Us. Remember To Donate Only To Real Charities
Stopping liberal corporate engagement is one of 2ndVote’s top priorities. We believe strongly that corporations should stop using customer dollars for political activism — even for those groups with which we fundamentally agree.
The fact is that “charity” is frequently a scam. The IRS’ bewilderingly complex system puts Catholic Charities in the same category as Planned Parenthood and Human Rights Campaign. Tom Steyer and George Soros-funded “non-profits” are really just a tax-free way to push liberal activism behind the veil of “charity.”
As America enters peak charity and giving season, we urge you to carefully consider to whom you send your money. Are they secretly funding left-wing agendas? Do their values oppose yours? Would your dollars go to abortion, gun control, and stopping your right to live out your religious beliefs?
You may be asking yourself, “Well, isn’t 2ndVote a politically engaged non-profit?” We are! But there are four critical differences between us and groups which manipulate and abuse the American people’s charities:
- Our agenda is that of the American people’s values and rights. We are not trying to supplant those values and rights with our own.
- We believe in honestly educating the public — not lying to promote an agenda.
- Speaking for 2ndVote, we’d love to go out of business because corporations were just businesses instead of cash cows for the Left. Contrast this with Planned Parenthood, which has sued states that have defunded them. Apparently, Planned Parenthood views itself as so important to America that it must have your taxpayer and corporate dollars.
- Conservatives cannot hamstring ourselves in fight for the nation’s future. The Left has used the IRS to trap churches and other groups. To not use the existing non-profit system to push conservative values would be to surrender without a fight.
There are many excellent non-profits which truly do amazing charity around America and the world. Here are just a couple to consider sending your 2ndVote dollars to this fall:
- 2ndVote (Really. We do a lot of good, but we can always do more when you support us!)
- Catholic Charities
- The National Rifle Association
- The Alliance Defending Freedom
