#1: traveling is a fundamental right
#2: owning and enjoying property is also
a fundamental right
#3: the public highways were already built
with tax monies paid by the people
#4: therefore, using private property to
travel on publicly owned rights-of-way
should in no way involve any "licenses" [sic],
because the State can NEVER tax the
exercise of any Rights, PERIOD!!
Therefore, since all of these fundamental
Rights are being violated by the apparent
requirement to "license" drivers and to
"register" "motor vehicles", there is,
indeed, a rat in the wood pile.
Pulling over moving cars simply because
they do not have license plates is not
justified by Law, because the absence of
a license plate is not probable cause,
since there is no "complaint" as such,
nor is there any damage or injury to report
or to respond to. Therefore, under the
common law, which is presently the
rule of decision in many states, e.g.
California, police have no business
whatsoever bothering cars which operate
without license plates.
They do it for the money, which is not
a justifiable reason, in and of itself,
under any Republican form of
government, read "rule of law" system.
