I didn't lose it, it expired. I went to the DMV and was notified I had to spend $10 more dollars to get my birth certificate. This isn't a lot of money to most of you and it really isn't a lot of money for the privilege of using the roads and cops to keep drivers orderly and safe.
...on the other hand. I live in an area without a serious public transit system. We have short buses that cost $100 to ride and run from 8am to 5pm. If you're work the afternoon shift, it won't get you home. If you working in the morning, it won't get you to work. It's a beautiful way of catering to the tourists and keeping the naves from making uses of it. So here, we drive. If you have kids and no drive, soon you have no kids because you won't be able to work and be where you need to be when your kids get out of school, it just becomes an impossible scenario. You drive, thats it. So back to the $77 dollars I dished out, after taxes, that is one work day of pay. What bill gets shorted? If you don't pay, you don't work, you can't provide for family. So, in this election season, I say "why bother?".
