My sincere apologies if that is what the email sounds like.

We all like to think of ourselves as pragmatic realists, willing to
compromise on some of our ideals. However, our thoughts and ideals
shape our intentions, which finally determine results. As such,
dramatic change in the political fabric of society must start with
freeing individual minds.
Again, it is far from my intent to throw stones -- many of you are doing
a great job on the ground, while I am a mere lurker on this list. But I
could not help pointing out that changing the world must begin with
changing our worldview first. Tiny and subtle thoughts may seem
insignificant but can snowball into a much larger effect.
- MIKE: Depends on what sort of corporation you are talking about. Which government is registering the incorporation? Lets say you form a Delaware corporation but it does business in NH. Why should you pay NH corporate taxes when NH had nothing to do with your incorporation?
Bob: Probably shouldn't, and I don't believe they do now. They do pay federal corporate taxes, and I'm OK with that, in concept. Off the top of my head, I'd much prefer something far simpler, like a very low rate on revenues as a trade off for limited liability, but we've got enough fish to fry in NH. Put it far down the to do list.
