Anyone who votes for Obama is no friend of mine, nor will I ever knowingly support an obama supporter’s business.

Had a facebook acquaintance who posted this encounter as it happened.. she’s good friends with this guy. I defriended this person immediately.

No room in my life for traitors of America and their supporters.

What do you mean by “knowlingly?” Are you practicing a “don’t ask, don’t tell” philosophy? Or are you taking steps to actively learn who each person you do business with supported?

Do you think your employer should have a right to fire you if you voted for a candidate they didn’t like? Would you want them to? (Maybe you would quit your job if you found out a manager or owner voted for Obama — or maybe your limit was where you spend your money, not who you make money for?)

I see how it is easy and trendy to make these claims. Maybe Obama is some special case, and all these “never support a supporter” applies only to this specific person.

But in general, there’s no way America survives if the entire economy is driven by people spending money based on politics. No way that’s what the founders envisioned. Can’t imagine Thomas Jefferson refusing to do business with supporters of his political opponents. And don’t think that in the end, the people posting here claiming this are actually ready to live their lives that way.
