    I come at it from the employee side. I just don't "do" politics at work. I don't talk it, I don't wear buttons, I don't put up signs in my office, and I don't put bumper stickers on my car. And I'm in a pretty overwhelmingly area.

    Part of it is respect for my co-workers and part if it is respect for my employer. I highly doubt there'd be any revenue effect--ours is a business where customers don't come on site routinely.

    I just feel like they pay me to do a job and my politics is not part of that agreement.

    A large part of it is self-defense as well as I strongly feel that my politics is none of their, ummm, business.

      Sentence doesn't make a whole lot of sense without that adjective.

      good point.
