    I did a quick search for the owner/CEO of B&N. It is very difficult to find out what political choice William Lynch, CEO of Barns and Noble, has. His address, background, and friends are all public knowledge. Yet his political contributions and support are a mystery. Try an internet search or records search of him. All the info avoids politics... interesting.

    A big chunk of Americans seem to be politically apathetic. Perhaps we are more stable for that.

    :rofl::rofl:

    Just by my lifestyle I already support the ones who support the republicans and stay out of the liberal supporters.

    I wouldn't waste my money on Calvin Klein clothes, Martha Stewart overpriced junk or put up with Costco's crap.

    I do already shop at Wal-Mart, Home Depot and my house is full of Proctor and Gamble products.

    And I eat at McDonald's who gave 86% republican!
