Do you ever own yourself? Yes, of course you do. Then why do we continuously buy our rights back from the government?
They have no right to regulate our lives. Hunting, fishing, concealed carry, driver’s licensing with ongoing renewal fees. Then add on you must get a business license, where you must pay the state before you can even try to succeed in your own business.
Another is occupational licensure, the state who has no understanding of a particular field decides to be the gatekeepers, which does little to protect the consumer and adds unnecessary costs for otherwise qualified professionals.
All of these have nothing to do with safety and only monetary gain for the state. I will in any capacity possible remove or reduce all renewal fees for activities free men should be free to do. Afterall, we are not government property.
