    I think you would agree that the sample is small, and that starting the sample at businesses with 5 employees eliminates a sizable chunk of truly small business. Perhaps we were thinking about two different degrees of entrepreneur. I was thinking about truly small businesses, ie proprietorships primarily.

    It's like the antiwar activists who used to spit on returning draftees during the Vietnam War. They were attacking the people least responsible for the policies that they claimed to find objectionable, but nobody ever said that leftists were rational.

I think you'll find that most of them are socially liberal.
    Most major cities tend to be more liberal than conservative (and if you need a link for that, you're really being a nitpicker), but even then, you don't know the political affiliations or attitudes of most of the shopkeepers and business owners that you walk past. You'd be surprised how many small business owners in places like New York City, Los Angeles and other urban centers are conservatives. They don't advertise it because it doesn't have anything to do with what they are selling, and it doesn't serve them to alienate potential customers. But, by all means, continue to present your absurdly anecdotal "personal experience" as superior to an actual study.
