    here is what i took from your statement

    you stated plainly....."If the owner wants to come out and say what he/she believes than fine".........so the business has an.... owner.

    if someone owns the property, then that property follows his lead.......its not a collective business......no other person else gets to decide policy that affects the company.

    reproductive rights?........you have your opinion, and can voice your opinion,....... however that opinion cannot damage my property if you are my employee.

    and as an employee you have no authority to force the owner to give him things, he wants.

    if you believe as i do corporations have grown more powerful.....fine!.....then call for the end of democracy which promotes( special interest )...like corporations,. and return to republican government of the founders.......end the 17th amendment.
    What about the corporations' use of the 14th amendment? Should they be allowed to use rights that were originally drafted for private citizens?.........I don't see how the 17th amendment has much to do with these issues anyway.

    and about king george, he technically did not have absolute power as monarch, as this video series explains (start the video at miniute 18:44)


    our founders list their grievances, they do not name a corporation at all.


    why is it you RAIL against corporations.......YET!.........you support the very structure of democracy, which provides corporations with the platform to power...........?????

    Unfortunately, that seems to be more true today than at any previous times in history, as collective ADHD has shortened attention spans, so many forget lessons that should have been learned 10 years ago.

    if the 17th amendment was repealed....states would have power again in the federal government [senate], ..to put an end to corporations powers, and those of other special interest......with the 17th, this moves america closer to democracy...and democracy is FILLED WITH SPECIAL INTEREST.

    the founders created republican government...not democracy........they sought to limit as much as they could special interest.....by creating separation of power......a republican form of government.........article 4 section 4 of the u.s. constitution.
