There are plenty of cases of racism in this world that deserve our attention, that we don't need to 'create' racial situations where none exist.
That's no different than me saying that just in case you run into me and make me trip and sprain my ankle on the sidewalk, that I should be able to force you to pay for health insurance. Is that just? No, it's moronic. And it's exactly what you're suggesting.
Are you rightwingers supposed to be in favor of liberty over security? You're the exact opposite on this issue.
Very good point. I think I should be able to force you to buy health insurance just in case you run into me somewhere, causing me to fall and sprain my ankle. Obamacare, anyone? That's exactly what you're suggesting we have, only in a slightly different situation. You, like Obama, are supporting security over liberty. Forcing me to buy car insurance when I don't want it is a violation of my liberty.Insurance is a responsibility that comes with accepting that privilege. If you do not carry insurance, you'd better have the financial wherewithall to pay for damages. If you do not, all you're doing is elevating MY costs by forcing insurance companies to adjust for irresponsible people like you, and reflecting that increased cost on my own bill.
What's stupid, is forcing people to buy products. When you do that, the companies that make said products don't have an incentive to make those products good. Period. That's why car insurance is so expensive and (*)(*)(*)(*)ty.There's "libertarian", and then there's stupid. Don't blur the line.
Okay, lets pretend you are in my crimalien state of Texas.
Last time my wife got hit by another car, by the time the police got there, no one from the other car was left as it turned out they were either drunk/crimaliens or both.
If we didn't have insurance($500 deductable), we would be without a car and a rental during our carless repair.
Time before... wife ran over a concrete sidewalk divider which dropped from a truck while she was on the interstate and it severely damaged her car.
Police could not identify the truck and so our car was undrivable. This time, had increased our deductable to $1K and couldn't afford the repair.
So, we bought a $1500 car junk with good stickers and am driving it. Just got the other car fixed, outside of the deductable and a claim and it cost use about $600.
So, in a big city of criminals and crimaliens, we need insurance against their automotive crimes.
If you are engaging in behaviour with that potential, you're not engaged in a 'right', you're engaging in a societally provided privilege. I know you want to whine and caterwaul about Marxism, etc, but your bleat doesn't change facts here.
That isn't health insurance, genius. That's personal liability insurance, and you should have it - or the means to pay for your misdeeds.Very good point. I think I should be able to force you to buy health insurance just in case you run into me somewhere, causing me to fall and sprain my ankle.
Leftist libertarians need to make more sense. Your analogy to health insurance fails badly. My poor health cannot cause yours.Obamacare, anyone? That's exactly what you're suggesting we have, only in a slightly different situation. You, like Obama, are supporting security over liberty. Forcing me to buy car insurance when I don't want it is a violation of my liberty.

You should have insurance because you cannot guarantee against causing an accident and bodily harm against others. If you can demonstrate financial ability to pay for damages, no insurance should be needed.
You can sue someone, you can win. but that does not mean you will collect money.
So, you must carry liability insurance, to insure that if something happens to someone's car, they get paid. If paying that small fee is a big deal, then don't drive. I like the idea at the very least, damages to my vehicle are paid.

Feminism is pretty much an all whites club pretending to be concerned with equal rights of racial minorities.
