In the history of the United States, voter fraud and intimidation was at many times thought to be motivated and carried out against many because of race, sex, age and even education disadvantages.
But in the current economic woes of the United States, class warfare may lead to the intimidation of today.
Let's take Radio Talk show host Todd Schnitt. Host of afternoon show in the Tampa market from 3-6pm, this "hack" made an outrageous statement and possibly illegal admission during his show 18 September 2008.
Speaking as a self proclaimed "Non-Conservative Republican", Todd Schnitt stated after observing his personal trainer's support for BARRACK OBAMA for President, "You know if Obama wins and raises my taxes, I'm gonna have to let you go." As to imply "why vote for Obama, you will lose your job with me because I won't be able to afford you. Later during the segment, he again talked about the making the same statement to an young lady Radio Employee of his he saw wearing a Obama shirt.
Let's first look at what he is doing. As an employee, is it right if your employer told you , HEY...IF SO & SO WINS, I MAY HAVE TO FIRE YOU...what if you don't vote for that guy & he still wins. Are you gonna be out on the street. Or even if you do vote for him & he loses, but your employer has already made it known that your support for the "other guy" is not looked upon favorably. Do you really want to work for a "dick" ?
Let me be clear!! AN EMPLOYER HAS THE RIGHT IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA TO EMPLOY WHOEVER THEY WANT. But I also believe the "snide" suggestion of an employer can be destructive for both sides and may cause that relationship not to survive.
I have yet to find any actual law that was broken during Schnitt's show. But I have sensed a tide in America where class warfare is brewing from this current election. The Republicans are desperately trying to hold on to every penny they make...and to them I say, I don't blame you, HOLD TIGHT !!!! The rest of us are trying to make a honest living and we also hate to see anyone taxed unfairly. But c'mon man. I bet both of Todd Schnitt's employees are getting their resumes updated because unlike the Schnitt's of the world, IT AINT ALWAYS ABOUT THE MONEY.
P.S. Hey Schnitt, If your taxes go up, HIRE A BETTER TAX ACCOUNTANT !

Schnitt tracked me down, called me and was kinda upset. He feels I was unfair in my piece...we talked off air and I offered to go on air...Needless to say...he didn't call me back. LOL
I still listen to your show buddy, but don't be mad at me. I just tell it like it is !!!!
