I wonder what would happen if a state law required all that to exercise the right to vote?
But all I can advise is to try to take the chip off your shoulder. When dealing with police, judges, or raving lunatics (or combinations) smile, humor them and go along with what they seem to want you to say. If a judge wants you to say you are going to hunt with a .25 auto, tell him you are going to hunt with it - chances are he wouldn't know a hunting gun from a bull moose.
Hard to swallow, but it seems lately that we have more and more fanatics and petty dictators in hign places and we just hope enough people wake up to vote them out before they decide to stop having elections and declare themselves in office for life.
