Treat the earth well: it was not given to you by your parents, it was loaned to you by your children. We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors, we borrow it from our Children. ~ Ancient American Indian Proverb
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

This is not about tort reform. All I am saying is that all groups of businesspeople should be held to the same standard of liability, be they an unincorporated partnership or a corporation. That's the libertarian way, the enshrinement of personal responsibility.
It's parasites like you TD, who want to escape honestly owed debts, that are the problem.

a citizen buys 1000 dollars worth of acme inc's stock
someone driving a truck for acme inc swerves to miss a thrown tire or a dodging deer and kills a person in an oncoming car. the estate sues acme inc and say the verdict is a million dollar above acme's insurance
under current laws, the judgment has to be satisfied only with the assets of acme and that means the stockholder's investments could be toast.
guy thinks that the estate should be able to sue the citizen personally and collect against his property in addition to the limit of his investments. that is idiotic in my opinion since there is no negligence or blame or intent on the part of the stockholder
- Colonel Paul YinglingNobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
