    Isn't that contradictory?

    I chose that there should be no seat belt laws for adults. If you want to put yourself in danger, fine.

    Nope. It ensures that police can not use it as an excuse to have seat belt check points or go I swore I saw people not wearing seatbelts as an excuse to pull someone over. If they are pulled over for speeding or some other traffic offense then the police can then check to see if the passengers are buckled.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    The States generally create the rules for the road so leave it up to the States to decide the laws regarding seat belts.
    If I had a billion dollars?

    People hooked on cocaine, crack, meth and heroine kill and otherwise destroy complete innocents...cost society billions of dollars...destroy neighborhoods..,apartment complexes...trailer parks. A civilized society has laws for the safety and protection of its citizens.

    So they committed crimes? So why not just deal with those crimes?

    No, government is the collective organization of the legal defense of our rights and liberties. How does your prevention techniques maintain liberty?

    I'm not sure how anything I said has anything to do with how it would be in the jungle. Care to explain?
