Small business owners should not participate in "Get Out The Vote" efforts.
Citizens who are not registered and don't vote are generally uninterested and uninformed. They will then depend on mainstream media to make their decisions. And all big government ideas sound good to them. Emotional ballot language works on them. Do we want such people to decide the future of our country?
Before you get involved in such efforts, ask yourself:
* Will my customers vote in the best interests of my business?
* Will my employees vote in the best interests of my business?
* Will uninformed citizens vote in the best interests of my business?
And, there is no such thing as a "non-partisan business coalition" or any political organization that is "non-partisan". They are all, at the core, liberal, pro-big government entities.
There are certainly non-partisan people who don't know anything about politics or care. Anyone who would build or work for a supposedly non-partisan organization is almost certain to be a big-government liberal and will stealthily steer the organization in that direction.
Having said all that, I would never attempt to stop or discourage another citizen from voting or would I be involved in any kind of disenfranchisement.
However, if I have a liberal, big government neighbor (and I do) I will not block his driveway so he can't go to the polls on November 3rd. But, if his car won't start I will decline to drive him to the polling place so he can cancel out my vote.
As illustrated on this website every day, the interests of small business owners is very different from the interests of large, multinational corporations. And these large companies are often run by card-carrying liberals who love big government despite the damage government does to the owners of small businesses.
Just asking you to think about it before you participate.
