Boycott Procter & Gamble


Procter & Gamble managers and other Ohio-based conservatives are behind an automated phone system that calls and asks whether you believe that judges who “push homosexual marriage and create new rights like abortion and sodomy” should be controlled. If you say “yes,” the voice encourages you to vote Republican.

Another automated phone call suggests that only the Republican Senate candidate would keep the words “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance, and another one paints the Democratic candidate as wanting to give foreign terrorists “the same legal rights and privileges” as Americans.

If you believe in basic human rights such as freedom of choice, the right to privacy, and freedom of (and from) religion, you can express your opinion of these dishonest and misleading phone tactics by refusing to purchase any of these Procter & Gamble products:

Don't blame the company. Likely it is individuals working under their own political beliefs. Anyway as a European the whole so called democratic process is shocking in this country. How can campaining be so negative and intrusive?
