I'm a Libertarian, and am strongly opposed to government mandated anything. But drivers on PUBLIC roads have a tremendous impact on the freedom of others. Personally, I think it is WAY too easy to get a license, Motorcycle or car, in this country. I passed the written motorcycle exam without even reading the book, and then passed the parking lot test with no deductions about a week later. Then I learned how to ride.



I have ridden with more than a few drivers who should not be allowed on public roads, but driver's ed is an absolute joke (at least in WA state). I think that the single best step to reducing fatalities on public roads is to hold drivers to a much higher standard of skill and judgment via very difficult driving tests.



And by the way, I agree with you on the warning labels. The steps that our society has taken to eliminate personal responsibility in everyday activities is disgusting.

Massachussets and California are both looking at mandatory health insurance - what's the bet tiered licensing gets the go in these two states pretty soon.



Let's just hope its assessed on hp/torque/mass and not capacity/induction ... much as I think Hayabusas are Darwin's right hand

CAUTION: READING THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE MAY STIMULATE ANNT-GOVERNMENT THOUGHT PROCESSES.



Jason, I too am a libertarian, and an anarchist. In fact I'm so libertarian that I believe that there should be no such thing as a PUBLIC road, as public roads are open to all sorts of idiotic governmental regulation and taxation.
