    same answer as the other poll, Of course not if it was in my control and it was discrimination based on race.

    Except Piggie Park/Maurice's BBQ is a good example of how they do in fact survive, for a very long time, despite blatantly being discriminatory to the best of their extent without facing huge legal troubles. While it is more difficult nowadays for them to do so, especially if they have a large amount of money invested in their business being open in major areas of this country or major cities, it is not impossible for them to remain open.

    Westboro isn't a business. And there are plenty of small towns in this country that don't have the luxury of choices and they don't rely on "99%" of the people of this country to patronize their businesses.

    Local businesses are not affected nearly as much by boycotts as large businesses, which is one of the reasons that you would never see places like WalMart or Target or Macy's actually denying wedding services to any sort of couples, or allowing their employees to do so. They would face much worse backlash than the small businesses, that are a single store, because those small businesses don't have to rely on so many diverse customers, and have to think of longterm profits.
