Well should it not be your constitutional right to not wear a seat belt? I mean if you are not wearing a seat belt and were killed, was that not your
right to choose not to wear one? Nope, even though you not wearing your seat belt will physically effect no one other than yourself, you still get a
fine for not doing so.
I think you may be assuming a lot to think many who'd be here, supported seat belt or helmet laws. Now, do people support using them? Well, I sure
hope so. Common sense isn't common, but that's just basic. Being big brothered on it? That's more than a little unnecessary, whether using them is
good or not. Government oversteps when they protect me from myself and I have the right to be stupid to my OWN darwin award, should I choose to take
dumb to new heights in some way.
There is also a profound difference. I don't have to wear a seat belt and follow that law just to legally live inside the United States. Prior to
Obamacare, in fact, there was nothing I HAD to do but live, pay taxes and die, as the old saying goes on that. Paying taxes only came ...until now
...with money gained or money spent. It's simply existing and living here now, as they'd have it.
Even some of us average people are starting to question the value of remaining residents here vs. quality of life to live elsewhere.
That is a total Sea Change and new concept in American society...
