  •  I feel that any nonprofit organization who (17+ / 0-)

    is actively participating in the denial of human rights to one set of people in the US should be denied the right to be a nonprofit. They should have to pay all the taxes any other lobbyist group pays and more so.

      by non-profits, is something that I happen to think it's important to protect.

      You and I are free to object to their very real efforts to restrict human rights or pillage the environment, AND we're free to have organizations like the the ACLU and the Sierra Club which are non-profit and tax-free.

      And THEY definitely don't care for our efforts to harm corporate freedoms or legislate gay rights. They are free to have organizations like NOM which are non-profit and tax-free.

      On both sides of the fence, direct efforts for particular candidates and campaigns, have to be run under separate PACs which do not enjoy such exemptions.

      What's sauce for the goose MUST be sauce for the gander. Just because you think their orgs do heinous things, does not dissolve the principle of reciprocity, because there will always be plenty of people who think OUR orgs do heinous things.
