      it's my job. I am very aware of what small businesses are going through right now. Even small corporations are getting hammered. Our current tax system gives all the advantage to the big boys to the detrament of everyone else. If we reformed our tax system into a truly progress system it would be good for our entire economy. It would level the playing field and allow real small businesses grow along with the wages of their employees and customers.  

      Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull

          with what you are saying. I know all small businesses are struggling.  My point was meant to be that the oft repeated republican phrase about small businesses, while a good one-liner, flies in the face of what the average person considers a small business.

          They win people over with the phrase; it is total trickery. People react to in support of small businesses, unable to deconstruct the actual definition per republicans.
