Vote or we'll kick your ass
There has always been a small group on this site that spews out these liberal/democrat/progressive-bashing threads, using obviously distorted, out-of-context, and outright false information. There are a couple of people who I believe have made it their life mission. To be fair, I have seen a few of the same type of conservative-bashing threads from the more left-leaning, but honestly, not nearly as many.
Blah Blah - find more information about the candidates (candidates - not just Dems) here...more local stuff...polls are open til 7:00 etc., etc...
The political ads (in my state at least) have proven that a hundred times over
No, I'm not. I've done my homework, and it's obvious to me that none of it applies to me. I just don't care.

Wait... what are people being "threatened" with?
If you take JUST the quotes from the letter, it's not "threatening" at all. It seems the New York State Democratic Committee wants to find out why people aren't voting... maybe in an effort to make voting worth their while...
“Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record,” the letter says.
“We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.”
“If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”
I wonder why they didn't include the entire letter... Here it is:
If you sign up with an organization like a political party, the information is not private.
Again, what's the threat?
But, I must confess - I absolutely still believe that not voting is still a vote. Especially these days. Your non vote gets counted - there are people that want that vote, and there are other people going to a great deal of trouble to figure out why you don't vote
So, yeah - it all counts - maybe the non-vote ultimately most of all
It would piss me off if I got that letter, wouldn't it you?
I've noticed a distinct reduction in the quality of the argumentation we're getting from our friends on the Right these days ... you think they're just losing interest in their spiel?

GOP To Iowans: Your Neighbors Will Know If You Don’t Vote Republicans
Obama said his first priority is to pass the "employee fair choice act". This bill (S. 1041/H.R. 800) is anything but fair. The bill shifts individual rights away from the employee and towards the union bosses. The bill will take away an employees right to a federally supervised secret ballot when deciding whether or not to join a union. This secret ballot process will be replaced by a "card check" system. When enough employees are strong armed and threatened by union bosses to sign the card. The right of the employee would effectively be stolen by the very people that desire to represent them. This is another socialist value. Take away the rights of the individual and provide it to the collective.

I'm beginning to wonder if right-wingers even read.
Reading comprehension can't possibly be this bad and so widespread.
