Don't boycott Chick-Fil-A, boycott the government

A friend on facebook posted a while back that we should boycott Target because they supported some organization that was against government recognition of gay marriage. Then more recently another friend posted that Chick-Fil-A should be boycotted for the same reason. However, it seems to me that in both of these cases the problem gays have is not with Target or Chick-Fil-A, but rather with the governments current marriage policy. It seems to me that these companies owners are in support of the current government policy. Instead of trying to keep a list of all of the various evil CEO's who support the status quo, why not instead boycott the government until they do as you want? This seems to really strike at the root of the problem. Of course they won't do that because unlike target or chick-fil-a, if you refuse to do “business” with the government, you will be attacked and violence will be inflicted upon you.
