    I never said "all liberals support a federal standard for driver's licenses".

    why do you ask these silly questions? in theory, restricting their driving until they have plenty of practice time should help. in some states, they are not allowed to have more than one other passenger in the car for a period of time afeter they get their license. again. good idea.

    well, i sure have no problem with more frequent testing of older drivers. i live in florida, they are a menace. of course, my idea of what's "old" will change as i age. ;-)

    Then I'd say that your view is unique, but not one that is valid since its a small sample size. I've been through drivers ed in Iowa and it was really good. I read up on Missouri's laws concerning teen drivers and I find that it's also a good way of doing things. Each state has a unique set of problems when it comes to drivers education and the one size fits all federal government solution will fail like it has failed in every instance it has been applied.

    Actually your statement is invalid since you have no idea how big my sample size is. It is an insult that you think I would believe what one or two people say without verifying it. And I never said it would work, I said I understand why liberals want more government control.

    So show me where my statement is invalid and what are the 50 different drivers education programs mandated by 50 different states. I'll be waiting for you to back up your original position that drivers education in the US is awful. I like flow charts and bulleted text to make it easier to follow your reasons on why drivers education is awful in the US.

    Unless there's a reason why government-run drivers education would be better, I don't see a problem.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    When you said my statement is invalid since I have a small sampling size. And I'm not your slave, you can use Google too. Why would you ask me to do something that you could do yourself? Because you are lazy or since you enjoy making yourself look like a fool?

    Just because government-run drivers education wouldn't be better, doesn't mean there isn't a problem. I'm also not so sure of government-run drivers education being worse than current situation.
