We are not serfs

Across the country, company owners are telling their employees if they don't vote for Romney, they'll lose their jobs. That's legal now thanks to the Citizen United ruling, which overturned previous Federal Election Commission laws that prohibited employers from political campaigning among employees. I've spent a decade working in international politics, and that's what happens in third world authoritarian countries. Intimidating employees and threatening their jobs is not what happens in a democracy, and it's damn unamerican.

In Conference Call, Romney Urged Businesses To Tell Their Employees How to Vote
