ADDENDUM:

Newton's laws refer to a particle and relate the forces acting on the particle with its acceleration and mass. In any practical situation, we deal with extended bodies which are collections of a large number of particles. Newton's laws may be used even if the object under consideration is an extended body provided each part of this extended body has the same acceleration (in terms of magnitude and direction).

ABSOLUTE CONSCIOUSNESS:

Absolute Consciousness is the Origin and Causal Mechanism of both existence as well as of non-existence but it EXCEEDS or is BEYOND the dualism of existence and non-existence. Existence and non-existence are aspects of the cosmic and supracosmic manifestation of the Absolute. By existence is meant the cosmic and supracosmic manifestation - the gradations of consciousness-energy, while non-existence refers to a state of awareness akin to nirvana in which one is not aware of the cosmic and supracosmic strata of existence. It is a complete blotting out of existence as seen in the cosmic and supracosmic manifestation. The Absolute is other than these extremes.

Do you vote?
If you do, thats where the obligation is. You buy into our system. Our system is a representative democracy - meaning that others make decisions for us as elected officials.
If you dont vote, then you might have a faint argument. But very faint, as you still consume our services.
Who us our?

Why would I vote if I can't vote on having a government or not?

I didn't ask if you knew ALL the traffic laws.(Mr. Straw Man..)
I asked if you generally follow them? We all had to pass an exam showing basic understanding of these laws.
Would you speed if safe but knowing PoPo with radar were in the area? Why or why not?(Example - 3 in the morning on I95 - no traffic)
I would have to know them all to follow them all .

I would travel as fast as reasonable and prudent.

The speed limit is just a suggestion.

I answered your question about traffic laws besides, men and women's intent of traffic laws is not about safety it states as much in the code.

Can you guess what the legislative intent is?

Once you agree you don't recognize the authority/existence of the Federal gov't, why does this not make the rest of the discussion moot?
Any point in our continuing this discussion?
Why or why not?
Because you are claiming that I have some obligation for just merely living.

Prima facie [edit]

Most states have absolute speed limits, meaning that a speed in excess of the limit is illegal per se. However, some states have prima facie speed limits.[70] This allows motorists to defend against a speeding charge if it can be proven that the speed was in fact reasonable and prudent.

Speed limits in Texas, Utah,[71] and Rhode Island are prima facie. Some other states have a hybrid system: speed limits may be prima facie up to a certain speed or only on certain roads.

A successful prima facie defense is rare. Not only does the burden of proof rest upon the accused, a successful defense may involve expenses well in excess of the cost of a ticket, such as an expert witness. Furthermore, because prima facie defenses must be presented in a court, such a defense is difficult for out of town motorists

No.

The 55 mph speed limit in the 70s was about energy. That federal law ended in '87.

Parts of Texas have speed limits of 85.

But if you don't recognize the authority of the US gov't why would you pay taxes? But I'm sure you do anyway. Out of pragmatism, correct?

I take that as a claim that you do not vote

Fine - thats your choice

But it also takes the steam out of your argument against taxes, as well as 98% of any discussion on the issue.

"our" is the rest of us here who participate in civic affairs by recognizing the legitimacy of the system.

That's really funny the burden of proof on the defense, in Connecticut the rules of criminal procedure apply.

Legislative intent is for identification and revenue.

You said you had no problem with the services, just the taxes.

What you were you referring to?

Roads, libraries, TSA, air traffic control, food/meat inspection, education, police protection, fire protection, sanitation (trash pickup), water/sewer, your mom's social security/medicare, military forces, you tell me...

ATF - Still waiting for that critique of the CO2 article I posted a few days ago

I wouldnt want to think you were just posturing (i.e. blowing hot air).

And no, regurgitation of other people's generalized talking points isnt critique.
