Subject: SLS: "interstate commerce" [sic]
References: <>

When you register your car the first time,
the dealer conveys the Manufacturer's Statement
of Origin ("MSO") to the state.  This gives the 
state a legal interest in the car.  Thereafter, 
you are effectively "leasing" your use of it from
the state, and your insurance is paid to 
indemnify the state against liabilities it
would otherwise incur from mechanical failure
and/or operator error.  Since the state has a
legal interest in it, your use of that "vehicle" 
is construed legally as "interstate commerce" --
i.e. commerce among the several states, even if
you operate it intra-state.

The whole thing is a revenue scheme for the
state government.  For proof, try to obtain the
original MSO for your car or truck.  The request
will put the state in a big bind, because they
will not want to admit that they have it in the
first place.  

Have fun!
