16 Aug Why Are Neutral Companies “Good”?
Today’s world can feel like there are only companies that support or oppose America’s values. For every Walmart there is a Hobby Lobby, and for every Dick’s Sporting Goods there is a Cabela’s.
But at 2ndVote, we also praise the Dr. Peppers and National Beverage Corporations of the world. They rank at a neutral “3” because they do just what they ought to – providing products and services to customers.
We believe neutral companies deserve applause from conservatives. No, they aren’t actively promoting our values – but is that what we want? Wouldn’t we all prefer corporations to get out of the “business” of politics, elections, and the buying of politicians and political causes?
The fact is that each dollar used by corporations for left-wing activism belonged to a consumer. Getting companies to be neutral means that no customer of that company will see their dollars used against their will. In other words, the 2ndVote of each customer is protected.
Out of the 800 companies 2ndVote ranks, over 200 received a score of 3 – and most of those are involved in any type of political or cultural activism at all. Here are a few great examples in a few different industries:
- Five Guys
- American Financial Group
- LifePoint Health
- True Value Hardware
- Academy Sports & Outdoors
- Advance Auto Parts
- Drury Inn & Suites
