    CEOs taking away political freedom of workers.



    Yet I guess libertarians will thing this is absolutely ok ... which goes to show, they don't care about liberty, they are all for private plutocratic tyrannies.

    The Tool can say whatever he wants to say. There is no breach of Liberty because all of our votes are secret ballots. At most, he'll minimize the number of Obama/Biden bumper stickers in the parking lots.

    I'd still fly mine, if only just to let him know that I personally plan to negate his vote at the Polls.

    Your party registration is a matter of public record.

    I'm a libertarian. I'd suggest that his workers solve the problem the old-fashioned way - through industrial action.

    As RGacky3 mentioned, party affiliation is public. Also political campaign contributions. Political campaign volunteering although not officially published can be monitored. Yard signs, bumper stickers, etc. are all public.

    I have the stickers, yard sign, T-shirt, and have made two monetary contributions to Obama's campaign. My Boss, while not as wealthy as Mr. Tool, thinks and acts just like him.

    I will not back down.

    Re: CEOs taking away political freedom of workers.

    One possible way that corporate fascism will advance upon our citizenry is through these sort of intrusive actions designed to intimidate and cow workers into betraying their own interests in favor of the corporation and their wealthy owners. Disgusting attempts like this must be exposed, attacked and stopped in their tracks.

    The right to vote and to participate in the political process depends on the unfettered and unobstructed freedom to exercise that right.

    Agreed. Why, can you imagine what would be next? Why, he might take his workers money and use it to offset political activity. That would be awful.

    He is ALREADY taking money he made off his workers and using it for political activity that goes against the interests of his workers.

    That is ALREADY happening.
