property. The government is granted the authority to govern via a contract known as the US Constitution. This authority was granted contingent upon certain restrictions of government as enumerated in the Bill of Rights. One of those is the "right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." Please read case #2 listed above to see that the Supreme Court has interpreted "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness", as to including the right to travel without license or restriction.
Therefore, when the government makes rules or restrictions for public highways that impede travel or that require a license to travel, they do so without constitutional and contractual authority. Of course, you, as beneficiary of the contract, have no rights whatsoever, if you choose to allow the State to violate that contract.
I AM is all that is. Everything else is malleable.
