With the elections coming up (In case you haven't noticed), do you have political signs on your work truck?

    Negative, I also won't engage in talking politics with employees or customers.

    No chance of that happening. My beliefs are mine and I exercise my right to vote. That's the most powerful thing any of us can do.

    Agree. No signs or stickers. Never discuss politics with clients. If a client brings up political views, I look for a clever opportunity to change the subject and get back on track. At work, I will only discuss politics with like minded coworkers, and only when no one else is in earshot.

    Negative... I have enough to think about at work w/o getting into all that.
    I'm pretty jaded now anyways.
    They are all the same.

    First of all, I hate bumper stickers. Second, if you put a political sticker on your work truck, and you live in a small town like I do, you have just lost 50% of your customers. Like the other guys have said, my politics are my own.

    I've seen quite a few businesses that put such stickers on their vehicles or in their places of business (retail shops etc) and I've never understood why. That, and religion are an automatic mistake because you're going to lose business, guaranteed.


    There's a reason it's a secret ballot and it really, really needs to go back to actually being that. It's no one's business who you vote for and you shouldn't be trying to get "your guy" votes, that's their job.

    Our refrigerator forum has stickers members can buy to help advertise about the forum.

    I wouldn't call them a "bumper sticker" but it's a weatherproof sticker intended to be put on a car window and it certainly helps get the word out.

    HeatingHelp really should have something similar IMO.

    We've got stickers. They're 4x4. Message me with your address if you want one. I'll bring some to the Eastern Energy Expo too.

    To be honest, I think posting in the political forum is the electronic equivalent of a bumper sticker.

    I work for a Union shop when Obama was running the first time around we where all told we had to pull our Union stickers off the companies trucks. the majority of us understood the reasoning behind it, but their are always a few that just don't get it.

    I would consider this one. Saw it maybe 30 years ago. I see it's available again.

    Doesn't this automatically make the person displaying the sticker an extremist?

    I think a sticker that said "All extremists should be hugged" is more "fun".

    @ChrisJ and @KC_Jones,
    The irony of the statement is the joke.
    Humor has changed in the last 35 years I guess. :wink:

    I had a feeling that was the case, but it went over my head.

    I must say though @KC_Jones , I agree hugging an extremist could be more productive. Although "fun" might be a little dicey, particularly in light of what the nature of their extremism may be! :neutral:

    I'm sure it could, look up the free hugs project and watch some of his videos. Cool idea, and a braver man than I.

    No stickers of any kind allowed at my job. No Bruins, No Pats, Not even American flags , nothing ever. One coworker who needed a condo parking sticker had to plead his case three times,before being allowed to keep his
