ok, first I am not "american", now I am not "authentic".You're not an authentic corporation in the sense of investors, fiduciary, driven by profit-by-quarter. You're a constituency that was created to protect authentic corporations: they give you some of the crumbs of incorporation, so you protect them feasting.
I don't think in terms of friends/enemies. I just think in terms of what is/isn't.
and I am a "constituency"- news to me.
I didnt even notice when I was "created".
Do you have a business?
Have you ever had employees, signed paychecks, and paid employer taxes?
Do you make things, and sell them, wholesale and retail?
Do you own a for profit metal working business?
Me, I have been doing all that stuff for 40 plus years, and all your defintions sound nothing like my life has been for those 4 or 5 decades.
I think you stepped in a big pile of steaming ideology and politics, and you might wanna find a hose and wash it off.
