I don't see what is the big deal in understanding that letting the government run every aspect of your life is NOT acceptable.

You have already admitted that the law is a "cash grab". So please explain how handing out tiny little fines is actually making people buckle-up.... Can you? I doubt it, because people who don't want to buckle up are not going to do it out of fear of a small fine. Making up false facts to give reasoning to a law, after the fact, is beyond dishonest. Don't tell us it is to save money on health care, or to save lives. Because it's neither. It's about MAKING MONEY.
there are many articles out there that say seat belt laws reduce health care costs, but when i post them, you will say they are biased, flawed or doctored ...

Just states trying to collect money . Ill go to jail before i sign a seatbelt ticket. The govt wont tell me i HAVE to listen to the radio , or run the heater , and they wont tell me i have to wear my seatbelt either .

If God says its my time then its my time , no 2 inch wide piece of nylon will stop his decision.
well, by your logic, if you roll over in your car and you are wearing your seat belt, if it isn't your time, the seat belt will come unlocked or snap ...

so wear your seatbelt and save yourself some potential cash ...

What, I might actually have an argument against them? If they are solid, then I am not gonna argue it. That's just silly. If you have something that is relative to the discussion, I would read it and give an honest opinion on it.

If you can
