Amazon may be America’s most powerful company. Its first-quarter 2018 revenues totaled over $50 billion and it has huge market share in enormous markets such as children’s toys, books, and grocery stores.
Yet with great power comes great responsibility. Amazon has largely refused to use its power to promote and support traditional American values. 2ndVote’s research has found that Amazon has banned the sale of firearms and their accessories, supports the Paris climate agreement, partners with LGBT groups which want to brainwash youth about the definition of marriage, asked the U.S. Supreme Court to force a baker to participate in same-sex “weddings,” and is a member of groups which want to allow men into women’s restrooms.
Our research found that Amazon partners with The Salvation Army, which offsets some of their anti-marriage and anti-life work. But they also stand behind the Equality Act — which would eliminate most religious liberty protections for most Americans in the workplace.
That’s the bad news. The good news is that conservatives who care about their second vote dollars can avoid Amazon entirely and still get great deals with online purchases. Our research shows that Overstock.com — no small player in the market, though it is about 1/100th the size of Amazon — is neutral in the culture wars and sells firearm accessories.
Amazon’s support for left-wing causes is disturbing. Thankfully, this is still America, where those of us with traditional beliefs can put our money behind companies that a) provide a great bargain while b) respecting our values. We recommend Overstock.com as a safe alternative to Amazon.
