"License and registration please. Guess what happens if you don't show? You go to jail! Pretty simple stuff."-----Maybe in some dystopian police state, but in MN, you would probably get a ticket and a lecture and be sent on your way.

Actually, in Minnesota we're asked for license and proof of insurance (unless things have changed it's been awhile since I was pulled over). And, if I recall what I was taught in school correctly, voting is both a right & a responsibility but driving is a privilege.
