After my spill on Saturday (as minor as it was), I realized that I'm definitely going to lay it down again and it is much better that it happens on the track.

Also, I'm all for rider education and training, just not state licensing.
To summarize: No M class license = crash during parade laps?

You are correct. No need for inspection or registration either. It's a win - win for tax dodgers

I'm all for any man that figures out how to keep what he's earned. It's not the gov'ts money anyway.

No, but it's the public's roadways and somebody's got to pay to build them and maintain them

Privatize them. Socialism is whether you're talking roads or medicine.

Ha! You think they will give you a tax break then? no. You'll still be paying the same amount for taxes/license/registration and you'll be paying tolls.

As as they may be, I would still prefer them over sky high property taxes. Having the ability to make my own choices concerning my own money is worth whatever frustration or inconvenience may result.

Yeah I was kidding. I see us paying both tolls and taxes before that happened. Our government is always looking out for us and our well being

Who said anything about being unhappy. I live in the best country in the world, but we're a long way from what our Founding Father's intended.

As some one who describes themselves as a conservative, I find it odd that you are arguing in favor of property taxes.

yes we are a long way.. and the world has changed a massive amount from when this country started. The basic core ideas "might" still apply, but in reality you are having a pie in the sky dream.

Some govt is good, we have way too much. You also can't let the people govern themselves; especially not with the mentality we demonstrate in this day and age.

Wanna fix? Let me know when you get on the ballot to run...

I'm just not delusional in that I think it's possible to have and that I deserve a free ride. It's funny that the Founding Fathers left out a clause against taxes in the Constitution.

Oh, and I said "happier"

I'm in favor of you giving financial support to my university Let's do away with property tax and have a state income tax because my school needs the money!

The gentlemen who created this country refused to give up on that dream during times that were much worse than they are right now. If they had written it off as a pipe dream we would still be nothing more than subjects of a despotic king. Its sad that people who know what is right have become content to settle for second best. No wonder our society is in decline.
