    I looked up the minimum insurance by state and came up with requirements in both New Hampshire and Wisconsin. Do they have specific laws where they don't have minimum requirements?

The last number refers to the total coverage per accident for property damage which in this case would be 20,000.)

    States that Don’t Require Car Insurance: New Hampshire

    The only states that do not require mandatory car insurance as of 2010 and for its drivers are New Hampshire and Wisconsin. However, the unofficial Department of Motor Vehicles guide writes that it depends on the circumstances as to whether or not you actually need it. For any driver, not having coverage remains risky.

    For example if the accident you become involved in involve drugs or alcohol, your case may be reviewed per requirements. In such a case, the state of New Hampshire may suspend, or even revoke, your driver’s license should you not be able to cover the fiscal damages of the other party that is injured. Cleary, getting a DUI conviction can cost more than increased insurance rates.

    States that Don’t Require Car Insurance: Wisconsin

    The laws that govern the state of Wisconsin are a paradox. While there is no mandatory law that requires its residents purchase auto insurance, citizens of the state have to be able to prove their ability to pay for damages in the event of an auto accident if they are the ones at fault. The unofficial Department of Motor Vehicles guide says that this can be done in a number of ways.

    First the motorist can carry liability insurance on the vehicle.
    Second they can put a cash deposit of $60,000 or more down with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
    Finally they can file a bond with the Wisconsin Department of Transportation as well.
    If a motorist happens to get stopped in Wisconsin by a police officer in the do not have insurance, an independent investigation will be led by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation and the case will be put under review.

    Now this was as of 2010.....Anything newer?

    NH doesn't require you to have insurance.

    They require proof that you can meet certain financial liabilities should they arise from an accident. Insurance is just one way that you can provide proof of your ability to meet those potential costs


    Section 264:20 Amount of Proof of Financial Responsibility.

    264:20 Amount of Proof of Financial Responsibility. – Proof of financial responsibility shall mean proof of ability to respond in damages for any liability thereafter incurred, as a result of accidents which occur in New Hampshire, arising out of the ownership, maintenance, control, or use of a motor vehicle, trailer, or semi-trailer in the amount of $25,000 because of bodily injury or death to any one person; and subject to said limit respecting one person, in the amount of $50,000 because of bodily injury to or death to 2 or more persons in any one accident, and in the amount of $25,000 because of injury to and destruction of property in any one accident. Whenever required under this chapter such proof in such amounts shall be furnished for each motor vehicle, trailer or semi-trailer registered by such person.
    I may be wrong.

    OK, I got you. There's requirement to show that you can be financially responsible should you get into an accident and that can either be personal finances which you would have to demonstrate or insurance?

    But you have to purchase health insurance under the new mandate whether you choose to go to the doctor or not. Even if you use homeopathic therapy and/or faith healing or just don't go to the doctor you still have to purchase the health insurance.

    If you were required to purchase auto insurance whether you had a driver's license or not, then it would be a fair comparison.

    Like I said, I am all for UHC, just not a health insurance mandate because it seems to me like it would be a much better fix for helping to reduce the costs of care and ensure that everyone is treated fairly and there is no middleman to mandate a purchase from.

    Car insurance is dependent, though, upon a car. Health insurance is dependent upon health. You can divorce yourself from a car, but not so much from your health (well you can do it once). The health is constant. If you were born with a car and couldn't get rid of it, it'd be the same deal. The point is that in order to exercise any amount of our control over our property, be that property a car we purchased or the body we're born with, there are government laws which require us to purchase forms of insurance. Thus the original statement that "government can't force somebody to buy anything." is obviously incorrect because the government already forces us to buy lots of stuff, including car insurance.

    Fact of the matter is, they have the guns and they can make us do whatever they want and the rest of y'all will be too busy pointing your finger at the other side to do anything about it.

    and one that is constitutionally mandated in the enumerated powers,
    We're Constitutionally mandated to have over 800 foreign bases?

    to buying state insurance coverage on a car?
    You asked:
    "Can you tell me what else the Federal Government requires that I buy as a part of being a citizen of the US?"

    I answered. Try to keep up with your own thread drift.

    You really think we are that stupid?
