VOTING IS AN IMPORTANT WAY FOR YOU TO NOT ONLY DO YOUR CIVIC DUTY, BUT TO PROTECT YOUR JOB. WE KNOW AND RESPECT THAT VOTING IS A PRIVATE AND PERSONAL CHOICE. THIS ISSUES GUIDE SIMPLY PROVIDES BASIC CONCEPTS YOU MAY WANT TO CONSIDER WHEN YOU VOTE.
Your years of work at the company have had their importance reduced by receiving a campaign flyer from "inept propagandists?" If that's all it takes to diminish your value . . .
All that I have done for this company and all that I continue to do is trivialized by the propaganda and ineptness of a bunch of propagandists.

So my question to ATS: Is this what it has finally come down to? Do I really have to worry about the safety of my job if I don't vote for Romney? What if I do not support either candidate? Will my job still be under the hammer if Obama is elected?
I really appreciate that the damned Republicans have stooped this low! All that I have done for this company and all that I continue to do is trivialized by the propaganda and ineptness of a bunch of propagandists.
Now, if Obama wins, your employer might have to cut back or go out of business, but that's got nothing to do with how you vote.
What do you mean, Republicans have stooped this low?
Take a deep breath, you'll be fine.

I think you're quite right here, but I wonder why that is? I understand that both Obama and Romney supporters see it as the end of the world if their candidate loses, either through war, economic destruction, loss of freedoms, or whatever. I'm not sure that this is a permanent situation, at least I hope it isn't. Many have commented on the triviality and anger of the campaign.
My concern is that the political environment and rhetoric has become so extreme
Ok, I'll agree with you, but I was putting the emphasis on a much lower level. I was looking at your vote, and thinking your job was dependent on it. But I suppose that, multiplying your example by 100,000, an election in a swing state could be affected.
Do you see the contradiction Charles? If Obama wins, they may cut back or go out of business...but that has nothing to do with how I vote?
It's propaganda, all right, but I'm not sure about the dastardly. I've seen lots of suggestions that a vote for Romney will mean World War III.
But I hope you can see the tactics used in this pamphlet, since you agreed it is propaganda, and agree that it is a dastardly way to potentially influence someones vote by suggesting their job is at stake.
