Traveling is a Right
Frank, I saw in my email account two responses from you, however, I was only able to find one of them after clicking on my email link which brought me to my TED page. The response that I could find was of you inquiring about my age. I'm 31. Why do you ask?

Traveling is a Right
Thompson v. Smith, 157 SE 579, the court stated, "The right of the citizen to travel upon the public highways and to transport his property thereon, either by a carriage or automobile, is not a mere privilege which a city may prohibit or permit at will, but a common right which he has under the right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

What if???? WELL WHAT IF GRASSHOPPERS HAD MACHINE GUNS? BIRDS WOULDN"T EAT THEM.. Im not waiting around for the US to turn into Libya or Uganda..Sure Jim, there are governments much worse than what we have, but any system that allows one person to choose a leader for someone else is corrupt and immoral.

I'd like to apologize to you and everyone out there on this site that maybe I offended. It is not my intention to come across as a complainer. Your response really grabbed my attention because I felt like you understood since you asked what I thought a solution might be. I always believed there are two types of people out there in the world, those that sit around and gripe, and then those that take action and are "do'ers". i dont want to sound like I am just complaining, because my intention is only to shed light to what I believe is the truth.

Yes, how we travel is our choice, but Let me clarify... the people that are using the roads as a place of business. people that use the roads for commerce. Taxi cab DRIVERS, truck DRIVERS, limo DRIVERS, and other CARRIERS out on the road that are for hire...Private use of our roads can't be regulated as it is a right. Again refer to Title 49 of US Gov Code which is what every states Transportation code refers to...

They have been indoctrinating it into society slowly over time by brainwashing us when we are young...why else would you have government controlled public schools? The answer to this problem is we the people need to unite and be on the same page that we can and will think for ourselves and realize that we are the supreme law of the land. A single person does not have much of a chance when taking a stand against the monster (government) that we created, but a bus terminal of people does.

1 problem at a time...you forgot to mention all the tax dollars we pay towards over populated TX prisons. Why are they over populated? Because we are concerned with victimless crimes like prostitution. I don't like it, you don't like it, but If a woman wants to sell her body to a man for money consentually, who cares! We have all the wrong people incarecerated bc we'd rather send drug dealers/users & prostitutes to jail & let the pedophiles, child molesters, & other sex offenders register themselves & move in next to us..Malum Prohibitum (statutory crimes that are wrong by virtue of the statute) crimes are out of control. Just because we don't like it doesn't mean we prohibit everyone from doing it. Go down to the courthouse & request a copy the recent case decisions & what you'll find in 99% of them is just the complaint & the deal. We should be smart enough not rely on attorneys or "the powers that be" to tell us what the law is, then interperate it for us! As if the attorney that you paid your life savings to really has your best interest in mind when the DA & judge are people that he works with all week long & then goes golfing with on the weekends. His job is to make the deal & make sure that your rights are protected only to the extent that he doesn't have to defend them. We need to go back to Common Law courts that dealt with crimes that were Malum in se, meaning wrong in itself.. like murder, theft, fraud, larceny, ect. Americans gave up their power (Im referring to the power to think for themselves) that belongs to them to the government that wouldn't exist without them. You're right, the system has people duped into thinking that having everyone go through Drivers Ed &requiring them to be licensed ensures they are competant & safegaurds us. The mass of people in America are asleep, & I was too until I was told I was a criminal and spent the night in jail bc my license was expired.

Somehow I get the feeling you work as a government official. However, when you subject everyone out on the public roads into one class needing a license, you may not feel like it impinges on a persons right to travel since there are other impractical means of doing so besides automobiles, but that is in fact restricting, and therefore violating, the people's common law right to travel and right to not contract. "The state cannot diminish rights of the people." -Hertado v. California, 110 US 516, the U.S. Crt "Statutes that violate the plain and obvious principles of common right and common reason are null and void." -Bennett v. Boggs, 1 Baldw 60 "The assertion of federal rights, when plainly and reasonably made, is not to be defeated under the name of local practice." -Davis v. Wechsler, 263 US 22, at 24 "The claim and exercise of a constitutional right cannot be converted into a crime." -Miller v. US, 230 F 486, at 489. "There can be no sanction or penalty imposed upon one because of this exercise of constitutional rights." -Sherer v. Cullen, 481 F 946
