Unfortunately, my doctor wasn't in that day and I was sent home (by a rather young doctor, rather fresh from the med school) with a prescription for cough syrup instead of a penicillin shot.

Why would you think a doctor would give you penicillin for a viral infection? Do you know how antibiotics work?

If this sort of surveillance had been used against the founders, they would have taken steps to prevent the newly-formed government from doing the same thing, just like they did on a number of others issues that they faced at the time, and since the spirit of the constitution is what matters, that's really what's relevant.

So what did they do against the Alien and Sedition Acts?

Why would finance companies and state governments not still require you to carry insurance? No finance company is going to give you a car loan and not require you to insure it. Your post is hilariously naïve.

Oh and the insurance companies are hugely greater in size than car dealerships. Car dealers are chumps in comparison.

Accidents and injuries have been decreasing for more than a decade. And yet you're still required to have insurance both by financing companies and state governments.

There is absolutely zero reason to believe that finance companies and state governments will not still require insurance even when cars are automated.

Pound for pound, the amoeba is the most vicious animal on earth.
