It's time for all companies to refuse to do business with a government that wants to destroy the Constitutional rights of American citizens. It's starting with the gun and ammo dealers and it needs to get a lot bigger. Instead of "Occupy Wall St." how about "Boycott Big Brother"?

Your understanding of business is, well, shall we say, not in comportment with reality, i.e. Delusional.

How about turn that around - how long will big government last if we refuse to fund it.
Government needs business, not the other way around.

Threads like this amuse me because it is full of childish "what ifs."

These scenarios are not going to happen.

Which is what is wrong with our current government.

What is the difference between some thug on the street with a gun taking your wallet and some greasy bastard in Washington with a national paramilitary force deciding to take your paycheck?

It's very apparent that you don't know how businesses do run.

I've owned my own business going on for a decade now. Without Government help (via tax breaks, benefits, grants, etc), many businesses, including big corporations would be raising prices on their goods, paying less in salary to their employees and not offering health coverage.

As I said, fine, go ahead and not do business with Government if they want to stand on their laurels. I would be fine if Government pulls their support in tax breaks, grants, subsidies, contracts from them as well.
