The words of the First Amendment of the United States Constitution establish that
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
The most fundamental foundations of our freedom as American people lie in the respect of the rights of others to worship as they please, speak what they wish, engage in political journalism, and peacefully protest. 2ndVote is inspired by these words and believes that private organizations should also abide by these words and support these basic freedoms.
The respect for these rights, while not required by law for private organizations, is fundamental to our free society. When corporations, particularly Big Tech with its virtual monopoly power — and in some cases, addictive products — support or act in ways in which these freedoms are abridged, the foundations of the greatest society in human history are weakened.
2ndVote holds companies accountable for their support of these basic freedoms. Actions like censorship of individuals such as conservative public figures, forced indoctrination of views inconsistent with religious beliefs, censorship of the conservative press, and support for violent protests are just some of the issues on which corporations will be scored.
