It might be unacceptable to those who die, but it's their choice.

Seatbelts get in the way when your trying to hit the bicyclist in the head with a beer bottle. Why do they wear those gays suits to ride bikes anyway?

When the state buys my car, pays insurance on it, buys my gas, buys my oil, then they can tell me how to drive it! Until then, they better touch up their driving skills if they want to give me a ticket!

This is just like the motorcycle helmet law. Me not wearing a helmet when on a bike, or a seatbelt when in a car cannot hurt anyone but me.

I am an adult and do not need the government to protect me from myself. If I want to do something stupid, that is my business. If I die from it, yeah, I deserve it, and that is still my business.

Thanks to Reagan's EMTALA, they can't refuse care... which they should be able to.

Than what else should we have to do so you won't have to pay for it. I should be each persons decision an if it is a bad one he will suffer; leave us a little freedom.
