CREDO Mobile, who markets themselves through progressive outlets, has no network of their own and uses Sprint.
CREDO claims that it doesn’t fund anti-environment politicians, or those who oppose a woman’s right to choose, or those who are pro-war. That may be true in a legalistic sense, but Sprint does. And if you’re using CREDO, you’re using Sprint.
Being a better, smarter, more environmentally aware consumer will not change the system because the problems are systemic and need systemic solutions. This is akin to saying that recycling at home is somehow making a political statement. It’s a good idea but let’s no fool ourselves, because it has no impact against the system at large.
One of our biggest problems is campaign contributions, which are little more than scarcely disguised bribes. Thus, a company saying that it will only donate to progressives is hardly a solution, especially since they are simply reselling services provided by a non-progressive company. The problem is not which politicians to give campaign contributions to, but rather a corrupt system that allows such contributions in the first place.
