Another "Truth" for ya.

We've decided what the definition of freedom is, and determined that we are individuals. Now comes the tough part. Going against our nature as social individuals to stick our big ass noses where they don't belong. Trying to attain that pinnacle of not being a miserable fucking busy-body. It's not easy kids, but it can be done.

All you have to do is completely redesign the human psyche into something else. Simple I know, but it takes a lot of time and a very extreme culling of the herd. You see, the problem is in finding people who are capable of seeing what they are doing, intelligent enough to understand it, and can get over their self-affectation to assert their beliefs on others. (Maybe "assert" isn't the right word for the previous sentence, I think I meant to say "force".)

Let's look at the Insurance industry for a minute. Specifically automobile insurance. (My definition of insurance is thus: Paying for an eventuality.) I've known people who have spent several times their annual salary on insurance over the years, and never needed the coverage. When they did need it, they had to pay more (Deductible) in order to recieve a portion of the monies that they've already paid in order to correct the damage. A really good idea if you have an issue of tree's "jumping out in front of you", but a shitty one if you haven't had any issues in "umpty" years. You, as the good driver, wind up paying for the mistakes of the bad driver. Why is it an issue? Because recently the state I live in decided that they would pass a law requiring me to carry insurance on my vehicle. Wait a minute. The gummint is mandating that I give my money to an organization (Taxation) which is operated by people I didn't vote for (without representation). I seem to recall a little document that said that this behaviour wasn't kosher. I could also call it robbery (which defines as: The act or an instance of unlawfully taking the property of another by the use of violence or intimidation.) which I think is another word that fits the bill.

More soon. (Stop laughing. I really mean it.)

Get used to it.
It's been that way for as long as I can remember here in the Social-ist Republic of Illinois.
If you don't have proof of insurance when pulled over, they can impound your car.

Ya Mon. I'm in the midst of trying to find a way to fight this crap.

If you are pulled over and you don't have insurance, tell the officer a story along these lines: "I used to have insurance, but I moved to a new insurance company and questioned my need for it. After looking into several types of insurance at different companies, none of them clicked with me. Therefore, I do not have car insurance. How 'bout Tic Tac?"

I thought car insurance was required everywhere! Where can I move to where I'm not required to pay over a hundred @#$% bucks a month for coverage that I've never ever ever needed?!
