    If you're going to throw insults around, at least be accurate.
    I'm talking about Libertarians that worship Capitalsm.

    What has capitalism to do with a boss using coercion and or intimidation against his workers to influence their voting habits?

    Re: CEOs taking away political freedom of workers.

    I believe this is wrong. We live in a nation where we have the right to freedom of speech. A CEO telling his workers that they cannot vote for someone violates that right. He may have no way of knowing who votes for who, but the threat is still there and should be handled accordingly.

    Some of those workers might believe that he, the CEO, can find out who they vote for and give in to his threat causing that employee to not vote based on their beliefs.

    The goal of this nation is to have our people vote for who they wish to vote for, not to vote for someone they were told/forced to vote for.

    It has to do with the fact that he is using his position as a capitalist and his control over the means of production ... to do that. Its totally internal to Capitalism.

    Capitalism does not inherently give anyone a blank check to do what they please, regardless of the rights violations. Perhaps you're thinking of every socialist country that ever existed.

    According to most libertarians I know, its HIS buisiness so he can hire or fire whoever he wants for whatever reason ...

    Unless of coarse your talking about some social right that comes before property.

    He can fire whoever he wants, but not because of the way they vote.

    Oh.. I see what you did there. You made the assumption that libertarians are against laws. Seems you need to do more studying.

    You are aware that libertarianism and anarchy aren't even remotely similar to each other, much less synonyms as you seem to imply, right?

    So you thing that the government should regulate hiring and firing of workers?

    Well, thats an interesting strand of libertarianism.
