    Youre living in one now and yet it doesnt offend you. Your concern for symbols is touching as your once great nation yields to the tyrannical corporate fascists and yet you sit there and do nothing

    now that is interesting!
    Bolshevism is Fascism? The US, one of the most liberal countries in the world, is now a fascist country?

    It may well be the most exercised right in the land.

    Corporatism is the most recent form of fascism - its no secret

    and the USA has a Corporately run speudo capitalist society that enslaves the bulk of its citizens whilst enriching a tiny minority

    Surely you didnt believe that the USA was a democracy?

    LOL

    Re: CEOs taking away political freedom of workers.

    now we see where this practice originated
    at romney's urging
    ... “I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections,” Romney told members of the ostensibly nonpartisan National Federation of Independent Business, an anti-union group whose endorsements tend to align with Republicans.

    “And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope — I hope you pass those along to your employees,” he added. “Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and your kids as well.” ...

    that's right. he has NO way of knowing how they actually voted
    so, who is going to handle it accordingly
    and what the hell does 'handle it accordingly' mean. what exactly do you propose be done to that CEO


    wait, if the listener is too ignorant of their rights, the nannystate is supposed to step in and make sure things are not said to them which exploits their stupidity
    who is in charge of the group assigned to fulfill this function and what is its standard operating procedure


    it is the RIGHT of citizens to vote for the candidate of their choice
    we get told to vote for someone every day via commercials on the net, print media, radio and televisions. why not just allow individuals to exercise their right instead of asking for a nannystate response to a non-issue

    Media and other sources tell us to vote for everyday. However, you fail to notice that the CEO is not just telling them who to vote for, he is threatening their jobs. You also asked what I meant by handled accordingly (please calm down by the way lol) and what I meant was someone of authority should remind him that he can't threaten peoples' jobs indirectly to make them vote for who he wants to win the election. The CEO did say in the video that he caused George Bush to win the elections before and it may have been illegal. I'm just paying attention to details, sorry if I have been upsetting you in any way.

    he is conveying to them how their jobs are at risk if the 'wrong' candidate prevails
    how is that not within the bailiwick of his right to free speech

    You also asked what I meant by handled accordingly (please calm down by the way lol)
    yes, because i wanted to know how you would propose that person's legitimate comments be 'handled'
    and chances are good that i am stoned when responding, so be assured i have no need to calm down ... if i could only find some chocolate to snack on

    ... and what I meant was someone of authority should remind him that he can't threaten peoples' jobs indirectly to make them vote for who he wants to win the election.
    and who in authority would you deem appropriate to restrict this person's legitimate free speech. for extra credit, tell us what standard operating procedures would be used to ensure the next victim of this person of authority was not you, inhibiting how you are able to speak. and for a gold star, explain for us what prevents this employer from firing his employees if the candidate he does not support win the election


    The CEO did say in the video that he caused George Bush to win the elections before and it may have been illegal. I'm just paying attention to details, sorry if I have been upsetting you in any way.
    and despite all of your words you have been unable to share with us why the comments of that CEO are found to be other than protected by the free speech provisions of the Constitution
    the only thing upsetting about your posts is your continued inability to offer anything of substance to defend them
