The "Auto Insurance" Argument

Daily, I hear some lame brained, dirt bag, power thirsty, media hound politician like Mark Warner(D), junior Senator for Virgina, say something like this.

Warner said

The United States Congress passed laws regarding Medicare and Medicaid that became de facto mandatory programs. States all the time require people to have driver’s licenses. I think that this is a bit of a spurious argument that’s being made by some folks.

First, for those of you that don't know, a "spurious argument" is an argument that isn't valid but made to sound valid.

The fact of the matter is that you don't have to have a driver's license if you choose not to drive, nor do you have to have auto insurance to own or drive a car. The last I knew, participation in the use of Medicare or Medicare is also not required.

Most states, and all the states in which I have lived, have a provision for self insurance of an automobile. In other words, if you can show means of financial responsibility, you can escrow a given amount of cash and use that as your automotive liability coverage. I have no idea what he is talking about when he says the states mandate everyone have a driver's license. Driving is a privilege. If you want to drive on public highways and roads, the state mandates the conditions that make that legal. However, if you care not to drive, then you are never forced or mandated by anyone, to get a driver's license just to be a citizen of that state.

By forcing or mandating that everyone buy health insurance, they are putting conditions on life and or citizenship. Well, unless you are here illegally or if you've been held down by "the man" and can't afford it then the Government will provide your insurance.

I think Warner's arguments are most certainly "spurious" in nature.

MARK MY WORDS...I will absolutely NOT go onto the government dole. I will not buy any kind of "mandated" insurance. I currently have insurance, for which I work my a#@ off to pay. If I am forced out of that policy, for any reason and forced onto a government policy, I will go to jail, and rot there, before I am forced to buy a socialist plan from this power drunk government.

In God I Trust
Have a Great Day and a Better Tomorrow
