Voting With Your Stomach

Responding to Jonathan Merritt's critique of Chick-fil-A boycotters, David Sessions dismantles the arguments against letting political factors influence your economic decisions:

The only political power to be had in the United States is money, and even if you don’t have enough to make a corporation hurt, how you consume is one of the few expressions of political will open to the average citizen. They may not have enough money to shake the economy, and may not even when pooled with a large group of like-minded people. But a visceral awareness that money is politics is an excellent first step toward the average person realizing his or her political agency and taking responsibility for it.

My take here.
