Based on the angle of the pictures, they look like they were taken by a passenger, not a driver. It’s pretty obvious. If the first picture had been taken by the driver, you would see some of the hood in the picture.
This isn’t really a political issue, but you seem to freely cast “liberal” labels on those who think it is a bad idea and “conservative” labels on those who think it is a good idea. If you look at the facts, you will find that when conservatives had control of both the Whitehouse and the Congress, the size of our government expanded by leaps and bounds.
What you mistakenly think is the “conservative” view of this issue isn’t conservative at all, at least the way today’s conservatives operate. What you are really promoting is the libertarian view of government, which, in practice, is nothing like what you will get with today’s so-called conservatives.
