“Licensing: When government takes away your right to do something and sells it back to you”

"Licensing: When (the) government takes away your right to do something and (then) sells it back to you” is a saying that has been printed on many images.

“Licensing: when government takes away your right to do something and sells it back to you” (also shown on an image by Milonickels.com) was posted on Twitter by Andrei Pambuccian on December 20, 2014. This image probably originated the saying.

“Licensing: When the government takes away your right to do something and then sells it back to you http://imgur.com/xh0toto #freedom #liberty”—slightly different wording, and a different image—was posted on Twitter by AMK Ultra on April 30, 2016.

“A license is when the government takes away your right to do something then sells it back to you” was posted on Twitter by CSM on February 23, 2018. ‚ÄúA license is when the government takes away your right to do something and then sells it back to you” was posted on Reddit—Qoutes (sic) on February 20, 2020. “A license is when government takes away your right to do something, then sells it back to you” was posted on Twitter by Coffee Drinker ūüö¨ on April 12, 2021. “A license is when the government takes away your right to do something and then sells it back to you” was posted on Twitter by Rich Mendoza on January 14, 2022.

‚ÄúA license is what you get when the government steals your rights away from you and then sells them back‚ÄĚ is a similar saying. ‚ÄúPassports: When the government takes your right to travel and then sells it back to you‚ÄĚ is a related saying.
