    Yes. Taking risk more seriously doesn't remove the risk. Therefore we should have a greedy thieving police state rob us in return for the illusion of security.

    I don't. The folks who own the road do.
    Henry George's theories were based on land ownership and how far a business was from a public resource like a mill or waterway. The man lived and died a decade before the model T was produced much less modern transportation and communication. Not only did Henry George never hear of the Internet, he barely lived long enough to see the electric light. Applying the theories of Henry George to modern nations is about as risky as letting the most brilliant caveman design your next airport.

    The tyrannical Big Police State owns the roads. I don't like that.

    No they don't. They just work for the taxpayer.

    Do you call yourself a "conservative" (i.e. minimal government-intervening supporter)? If so, you're lying.

    You purchase car insurance, required by the state, not big business, so that if you harm someone's property or cause bodily injury, then 1) the victim is not left destitute because of your negligence and 2) so that you are not left destitute because you caused damage or bodily injury. You are betting the insurance company that you are going to have an accident and cause property damage and/or bodily injury. THEY are betting that you don't. If you win, they pay. If you lose, they get to keep the bet.

I'm can't say the same of Obamacare.

    I'm being punished for a crime I never committed. That is absolutely wrong. Stop with your moral relativism.

    You apparently love forced car insurance or else you wouldn't be defending it.

    No, you're not. You're being asked to obey the rules when using a public resource.
