Should corporations, unions, and non-profit organizations be allowed to donate to political parties?

Should corporations, unions, and non-profit organizations be allowed to donate to political parties?

“Federal law does not allow Corporations and labor unions to donate money directly to candidates or national party committees.” However, there are multiple loopholes which political parties take advantage of and flout the policies. NAACP, Planned Parenthood, Sierra Club, and National Rifle Association are well-known examples of organizations that operate as social welfare organizations which raise and donate money for political purposes.

Those in favor consider donations as a personal choice and see no downside of such funding. Opponents argue that elected authority can be biased to such donors because of their own political agenda.

What do you think? Should corporations, unions, and non-profit organizations be allowed to donate to political parties?

Today is the day. Now is the moment. Vote for change.

    For many years the more senior politician the more wealthy they became by selling votes to lobbyists. Term limits will drastically reduce those issues coupled with removing Wealthy corporate donors and donor organizations or PACs.

    We need our elected officials to help the people that elected them not corporate America or a specific Union (I.E. Teamsters, police, Firefighters, AFL-CIO, etc).

    I am a homless Purple Heart veteran with a. Minor child and a 22 year old. I am born and raised in Iceland and I am the first female from Iceland to be a marine. I got injured in Iraq in 2004 but I stayed with my marines because we are a family. Now I have never been so disappointed with these nonprofit organization except wounded warriors Jean Brunson, Glenn from the veterans administration, and Christy Stover from the semper fi fund. Every day for 3 months I went to all the different organizations that say they they help veterans. What a crack of shit. They say that you make too much money for them to help you and I am 100 % unemployable and I was told no and since I am 100% and then they have families that make a lot more than me and they qualify. They don’t build homes for female veterans who almost always are responsible to take care of the children but they build home for men. I think all these so called nonprofit organizations need to be investigated by the federal government and not just have 3 options for homeless mothers who have children and are not on drugs and alcohol. This is a shame I ended up loosing everything I owned and my children lost everything. We are still homeless but at least now we can sleep in a motel.
