The Right to Travel

G'day Michael Dunn,

Firstly, you may want to edit your tag lines a bit better, incorrect spelling (crimainal, priveledge, dauhter, e.g.) detracts from credibility.

The author of this article quotes the Free Enterprise Society:
"Government, in requiring the people to file for drivers license, vehicle registrations, mandatory insurance, and demanding they stop for vehicle inspections, roadblocks, etc. are restricting and therefore violating the peoples’ common law right to travel."

Correction: I believe that if you check into it, your government requires persons to apply for driver's licenses...and is therefore not violating the peoples’ common law right to travel.

Homo vocabulum est naturae; persona juris civilisMan is a term of nature; person of civil law. – Bouvier’s Law Dictionary (1914), “Maxim,” page 2136

Then this author quotes this, presumably as part of his defense of the "right to travel":
"The right to travel is a part of the liberty of which the citizen cannot be deprived without due process of law under the 5th Amendment." Kent v. Dulles, 357 US 116, 125.

And, who gets to decide what "due process of law under the 5th Amendment" is??? That's right, the fox guarding the hen house does.
