Politically insane coworkers

Just started a new job and holy shit, there's a guy there who is just too much. I keep politics out of the workplace. IMO, nothing good comes of bringing political and/or religious conversations to work.

But, this guy is something else. His car us plastered with Romney and Republican stickers. He spends all day raving about Romney this, conservative that, Republican blah, blah, blah. I claim allegiance to neither party and generally have an attitude of fuck 'em both. I don't understand the partisan idiots who treat their political party like a sports team and blindly cheer them on.

I generally ignore the guy, but today he just kept coming to show me political ad videos and kept bitching about reports that electronic voting machines were switching Romney votes to Obama, but then came barging in to gleefully show me a video of "the greatest voting machine ever" as he called it that showed a voter trying to select Obama but it kept checking Romney. Do these idiots see their own hypocrisy? Do they even care?

To top it all off, today he bragged about turning around his giant Romney yard sign to display the message he'd prepared on the back. His message? "It's time to put a WHITE man back in the WHITE House!" Holy fucking shit.

You should see the racist bumper stickers in Idaho. If we had stickers like that on our vehicles in Calgary our tires would be slashed!

Sadely I think more people voted due to race and religion than anything this election. I've here endless arguments about this election end in either "well Obama doesn't believe in Jesus" or "we'll Obama is not a Christian".
I have not herd any outright racism as you have, but when people I know talk about being mad about not getting enough government funding for schools, hating how politicians have been attacking unions, hate greedy big business, and complain about how the wealthy pay less taxes than us, then the next day say they are voting for Romney. It makes me just beg the question... Lol

Things will be much quieter once this is all done with! Can't wait.

The GOP has used religion to secure the trailer park vote for years. I wonder how many of them realize Romney is not Christian?

I think technically he would be considered Christian. It's the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
