Pay for car insurance
Pay into social security (even though i'll never see a cent)

forced to go to school (truancy laws)
i mean the list goes on and on man.
You can't say that 'some' violations of our "civil liberties" are "okay" and others "are not". A rose by any other name still has a lot of
thorns with which to make you bleed.
If you're going to attack someone for stupidity, hey good, go for it, seriously...but don't be one sided in your approach.
First Post on ATS, been stalking in the shadows for a month or so now. This just got me going...
Pay income taxes - 16th Amendment. The American people voted on it, thats how an amendment works. Forty-two of the 48 states at the time agreed to the
Pay for car insurance - Pretty sure this is a State regulation (backup?)
Pay into social security - From FDR's New Deal. Several recent presidents have been focusing (at least floating the ideas) of privitization of social
Forced to get vaccinations - This is just false. Again, somthing passed by states if at all (I think Rick Perry of Texas tried/did this) IN FACT, the
SCOTUS has upheld the peoples rights to say no to the state on "forced" vaccinations.
forced to go to school - You don't have to go to a public school. You don't have to go to a private school. My niece is going to be homeschool from

sucessful businessmen that went this route.
I would like to point out that I'm not a fan of all of these subjects, and I am definatly not a fan of Pelosi or Gov't healthcare. I just like
seeing facts properly displayed.
If I broke any rules or any hearts in my first post, go easy please.
