     Mitt Romney supporter, Arthur Allen, CEO of ASG Software Solutions, wrote an email to his employees that they should vote for Mitt Romney or he, Allen, will sell his Corporations and they (his employees) will lose 60% of their salary.

Subject: Will the US Presidential election directly impact your future jobs at ASG? Please read below.

To all ASG employees,

I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever.

... Remember, in the world of business, companies are consolidators or they get consolidated; so far ASG has been a consolidator, completing over 60 acquisitions in our 26 year history. When we buy a company, we eliminate about 60 percent of the salaries of the employees of that company. If we lose our independence and get consolidated, the same thing would happen to ASG’s employees.

     That's right, a Romney supporter admits that his corporation, over its 26 year history, has eliminated 60% of the salaries of employees of companies he takes over.

       That is the exact same business model Mitt Romney has: Destroy American families by lowering their wages and/or shipping their jobs to sweatshops overseas so he, Mitt, can personally profit Millions.

      The mentality of Romney and Allen prove Romney is full of sh!t when he promises his Administration would create 12 million jobs and raise salaries of American workers.

ROMNEY: I will create 12 million new jobs in this country with rising incomes.

     When Romney supporter, Arthur Allen, wrote that email two things became evident:

1) Allen proved that the goal of Corporations is not to endear itself to its host country and make its host country a strong economic country but rather -- the goal of a Corporation is to make millions in profit for their owners -- there is nothing wrong with that goal, but that is the reason you do not hire a business man to be President of the United States.

2) Allen has been looking to sell his company off in scraps for a long time and it has nothing to do with who is President but all to do with how much profit Allen can make chopping up his company and selling it in parts.

Allen: "I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever."
   Here's a some facts: the first time America elected a 'business man' as President we got Hoover - who gave us the Great Depression.

    The second time America elected a 'business man' as President we got George W Bush who gave us the 2nd Great Depression.

     In September 2008, George W. Bush admitted his Economic Policies led America toward a 2nd Great Depression.

GEORGE W. BUSH: "those who have followed me know I have always been a free market man until your Advisers come to you and tell you that we are heading toward a Depression greater than the Great Depression."

GW Bush, September 2012

Video George W. Bush admitting his policies gave us a 2nd Great Depression:

     That is what Mitt Romney's Economic Advisers gave America, a 2nd Great Depression, when they worked for the Bush/Cheney Administration.

Here is Allen's complete email where he uses intimidation to coerce his employees to vote for Mitt Romney:

Subject: Will the US Presidential election directly impact your future jobs at ASG? Please read below.

To all ASG employees,
    We have been stuck in an extremely sick global economy, but as we should all know by now, the global economy largely depends on the US economy. This sick global economy has been negatively influencing ASG since December 2008. No one could have ever have dreamed that the US economy would still be sick 4 years later, but it is. We have a chance, as individuals, to help turn the sick US economy into a healthy economy, and positively influence the global economy as well. This chance comes on November 6th, when we elect a new President and administration. The US and the world need to elect individuals who have business experience. Neither the world nor the US can stand to elect politicians any longer. In my view, and in the view of most business leaders, if you give politicians 100 questions, they will give you back 100 wrong answers simply because they have no basis for making those decisions. Would you hire a person with no experience to do brain surgery? Of course not, but that’s what the US voters did in 2009. Why does the world keep hiring politicians to run our global economies when they have no experience? It just makes no sense, and yet the world keeps doing it over and over again. Let’s take the lead on November 6th and show the world how it should and can be done.

    Many of you have been with ASG for over 5, 10, 15, and even 20 years. As you know, together, we have been able to keep ASG an independent company while still growing our revenues and customers. But I can tell you, if the US re-elects President Obama, our chances of staying independent are slim to none. I am already heavily involved in considering options that make our independence go away, and with that all of our lives would change forever. I believe that a new President and administration would give US citizens and the world the renewed confidence and optimism we all need to get the global economies started again, and give ASG a chance to stay independent. If we fail as a nation to make the right choice on November 6th, and we lose our independence as a company, I don’t want to hear any complaints regarding the fallout that will most likely come. Remember, in the world of business, companies are consolidators or they get consolidated; so far ASG has been a consolidator, completing over 60 acquisitions in our 26 year history. When we buy a company, we eliminate about 60 percent of the salaries of the employees of that company. If we lose our independence and get consolidated, the same thing would happen to ASG’s employees.

    I am asking you to give us one more chance to stay independent by voting in a new President and administration on November 6th. Even then, we still might not be able to remain independent, but it will at least give us a chance. If we don’t, that chance goes away.

    I apologize for writing such a blunt email, but for those of you who have known me for years and years, you know that this must be serious, and it is. I am going to follow this email with an email to All Sales, offering all of our help to assist them in making Q4 the best quarter in ASG history. Business is hard to find, but it is out there if Sales just goes and gets it.

    Mr. Allen

   My thoughts, Allen is a prick.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
