In Response to CEO's Pushing Workers To Vote For Romney Or Else:
The Huffington Post, The Examiner and several other notable newspapers are reporting that several CEO's are sending letters and E- Mails to their employees intimidating them to vote for Romney or face possible cuts or layoffs, if President Obama is reelected. This strategy is endorsed by Republican Mitt Romney, a former CEO himself. Romney told business owners in June that they should tell their employees who the CEO's were voting for and what each outcome would mean for their jobs. Mike White, CEO of Rite-Hite Inc., even warned his employees that they might suffer " personal consequences " if they vote for President Obama. The Koch brothers ( CEO's of Georgia Pacific & Koch Industries ), who employs over 50,000, also sent letters to employees asking them to vote for Romney and CEO's even reminded their workers that they could donate up to $2,500 to Romney. Now we have the wealthy CEO's intimidating our citizens into who they should vote for or else. Workers have to give up their freedom to vote for the candidate of their choice or take a chance on losing your job. When does the greed and corruption stop ? Romney and Ryan say we can't afford to continue Medicare and Social Security, but we can afford more Tax breaks for the wealthy. What are the Right Wing Republicans doing to our Democracy? First we had the 5 Republican Supreme Court Justices voting for unlimited donations to candidates in the " Citizen's United " decision ( 4 Democrat Justices voted against it ), Voter Suppression Laws in Republican led states and now this.

More Corruption by Romney:
In Conference Call, Romney Urged Businesses To Tell Their Employees How to Vote
CEO suggests his employees may lose their jobs if Obama wins
"Westgate Resorts CEO David Siegel came under fire this week for sending an email to his employees demanding that they vote for Mitt Romney and threatening to downsize the company if they don’t. But Siegel’s email isn’t an outlier. It fits a pattern of imperious CEOs attempting to marshal the support of their employees in pursuit of their own political interests."
Koch Sends Pro-Romney Mailing to 45,000 Employees While Stifling Workplace Political Speech
"Much has been written about the owners of Koch Industries, brothers David H. Koch and Charles G. Koch, trying to control the political process through hundreds of millions of dollars in donations to right-wing causes and candidates. Now, an In These Times investigation reveals that the billionaires have broken out another tactic to influence the 2012 elections: attempting to control their workers’ votes."
The man is not even in office yet, and is already displaying how "His Term" is going to be.
You want a better America? Romney is not the answer.
This is how Romney works: "If I can't win it legitimately, steal it!"
Any vote for Romney, is a vote for corruption at the highest level!
And remember one thing... YOU will be the one to put him in office.
