Default Obama says "take the day off" to vote.

Imagine that, Obama's answer is NOT TO WORK.

Do most socialists looking for hand outs work?

If one of my employees came to me with that, I would say sure.

In fact, take them all off!!

That is why the polls open early and close late.

As of November 5, 2008, when President Obama is officially elected into office, our company will instill a few new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspiring issues of change and fairness:

1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales commissions into a common pool that will be divided equally among all of you. This will serve to give those of you who are underachieving a “fair shake.”

2. All hourly employees will be pooling their wages, including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it equally amongst yourselves. This will help those who are “too busy for overtime” to reap the rewards from those who have more spare time and can work extra hours.

3. All top management will now be referred to as “the government.” We will not participate in this “pooling” experience because the law doesn't apply to us.

4. The “government” will give eloquent speeches to all employees every week, encouraging its workers to continue to work hard “for the good of all.”

5. The employees will be thrilled with these new policies because it's “good to spread the wealth.” Those of you who have underachieved will finally get an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and had success will feel more “patriotic.”

6. The last few people who were hired should clean out their desks. Don't feel bad though, because President Obama will give you free healthcare, free handouts, free oil for heating your home, free food stamps, and he'll let you stay in your home for as long as you want even if you can't pay your mortgage. If you appeal directly to our democratic congress, you might even get a free flat screen TV and a coupon for free haircuts (shouldn't all Americans be entitled to nice looking hair?) !!!

If for any reason you are not happy with the new policies, you may want to rethink your vote on November 4th.

Well i think in some other countries its not all that uncommon for them to get election days off. It gets treated as a national holiday or some shit.

I could get time off to vote, but the day off? WTF?

Hell, in mexico a 15 year old girl births a baby in the morning and clocks in at 1600.

Yeah, you'd think since everyone on this site seems to think /liberals sit at home all day waiting for their welfare checks to show. You'd think it was be the pushing their supporters to take the day off to vote.

I think the conservatives should just work all day, maybe even catch some overtime. If they miss the vote, no big deal.

In fact, it's too bad most people only have an 8 hour work day, which, incidentally is the fault of lazy liberals.

I have no problem with having the day off to vote. There are a lot of people in this nation that don't have jobs that allow them to just slip away to vote, and with our current voting practices, getting out of work at 5 and waiting in a line for 3+ hours to vote because you have a job you can't leave is kind of BS.
