Georgia Lawmaker Believes Drivers’ Licenses Are Too Much Government Intrusion

Posted by | February 2, 2011 18:15 | Filed under: Top Stories

Georgia state Republican lawmaker Bobby Franklin believes the government is overstepping its bounds by issuing drivers’ licenses. and has proposed legislation to stop the state from requiring them.

“Free people have a common law and constitutional right to travel on the roads and highways that are provided by their government for that purpose,” Franklin’s legislation states. “Licensing of drivers cannot be required of free people, because taking on the restrictions of a license requires the surrender of an inalienable right.”

Franklin likens the requirement to “agents of the state demanding your papers.” And it’s not the only nutty piece of legislation he’s favored.

That’s not the only eyebrow raising legislation Franklin has introduced: he’s also proposed bills requiring the exclusive use of gold and silver as tender in payment of debts by or to the state; a bill seeking to eliminate crop management regulations; another bill banning forced vaccinations; a bill to stop the collection of the Georgia income tax; another to stop all property taxes and yet another to end eminent domain.
