Do you personally refuse to comply with your state's vehicle licensing / registration / insurance requirements? If the former, how has that worked out for you? Around here that would get your bus impounded and you saddled with citations / fines.
Note I'm not arguing the right or wrong of it all. Just the practicality. Seems like this is the sort of strategy that only really works if everyone else is doing it.
I actually do, and have, since somewhere around 2015 or so.
To do it effectively, you need to understand a little bit of "law", but there's nothing actively 'illegal' with it. It is all malum prohibitum
(Bad/Wrong because (we) say so) (government incorporated) policy/code, which is different from actual "law".
A license is something that is issued (by competent authority) the grants permission to do something that, without which, would be illegal, unlawful, or a tort. Since SCOTUS has already ruled numerous times that travel upon the public roadways and highways is well within a private person's ability to do so by any conveyance they choose, traveling upon the public roadways by use of a privately-owned means of conveyance is perfectly lawful. It only becomes a question of law if you utilize the public roadways to transport people or property for payment, as in the case of some kind of a business. Then it would fall under the "Interstate Commerce Clause" of the Constitution.
Registration is a bit harder to find a clearer definition for, but that is by design; registration is effectively requesting permission to own and use something from the government, which has real or actual no powers to do so. The only exemptions from this would be in the case of a Legal Fiction such as a business, because they are not real (living) "people". The Federal Government has attempted to confuzzle things so that people believe they are required to act like business and incorporated entities for basically everything, which is why people basically think they need to seek out permission to do anything and they need to register everything, as well as obtain licenses to do anything as well.
Provided that a person does not harm or otherwise infringe upon the rights of others, then no such permission is necessary of required. And everything that is registered under any government essentially becomes 'property' of the government, and the Federal government actually uses the 'property' it 'possesses' to take out loans from other incorporated entities (such as the Federal Reserve and other private financial institutions) to do things that most of us might object to.
And yes, this is a topic that I am passionate about as I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, and to protect and shield the People of the United States, and they don't really teach civics anymore. I want people to learn and know and understand their actual
rights so we can take back control from the fucked up governments we've had basically my whole life. If everyone, everywhere knew what I know, and operated on the same principles and manners, we could actually stop most of the government corruption and the rest of the nonsense without having to fire a shot or kill anyone. Peaceful revolution is the best kind.
