They will claim "driving on public roads" is a "privilege" and not a right, .
This is true; this is the first line of EVERY driver's manual I have EVER READ!!!! DRIVING IS A PRIVELEGE NOT A RIGHT!!!! MY children and I have the
right not for our lives to be put in DANGER!!!!! And yes you do have the right to move freely over our lands, you can walk, ride a bike, take a bus, a
cab, a train, a plane, or ask a friend who has no BAC to drive you or a horse IDGAF, you are free to move as long as you don't do it recklessly and
put other's lives in danger! AND FOLLOW THE LAWS!!!!!
The fact they can take away your license for driving infractions is proof enough.

Rights are exactly what we are brave enough to claim as our rights.
In Pennsylvania, some years ago, they threatened to take away the 'privilege' of driving from anyone that did not pay into their uninsured motorists
medical fund. When they figured out that only ten percent of the drivers were willing to pay it anymore, they abolished the fund. When enough people
opt to break a law in order to claim something as a right, it will be just that, their right.
Think about it, if for some whacky reason the government said they were going to suspend everyones driving 'privileges', do you think everyone would
listen to them? I think not. I think we would claim our right to drive a car, just like any law-breaking LEO would.
Please do not construe any of this as supporting driving while impaired in any form. I am against impaired driving and support constitutional methods
of keeping it in check.
