    want you do

    Is it OK to leave out "to" as in "Now, what I want you do is take this brush and very gently just sweep -- exactly."? Or "They can not say we want you to go out there, we want you to work at the polls, we want you get out the vote, and yet, when we're elected, we don't care about your issues."

    No. I suppose that you are now going to quote a text where you have found it. The answer will still be no.
