How many fucking times do I have to say it? Again, I know that I go largely ignored in this part of the site, whatever, but you're all exhibiting idiotic behavior by continually falling for this guy's nonsense.

Ignore him; cos he very much wants you to go after him.

Jive, Khanada already told you about the name calling earlier.

Enough.

From the first post:

To underscore the fact that it is some level of drinking that is being criminalized, government sets up these outrageous, civil-liberties-violating barricades that stop people to check their blood – even when they have done nothing at all. This is a gross attack on liberty that implies that the government has and should have total control over us, extending even to the testing of intimate biological facts. But somehow we put up with it because we have conceded the first assumption that government ought to punish us for the content of our blood and not just our actions.
Quote:
We need to put a stop to this whole trend now. Drunk driving should be legalized. And please don't write me to say: "I am offended by your insensitivity because my mother was killed by a drunk driver." Any person responsible for killing someone else is guilty of manslaughter or murder and should be punished accordingly. But it is perverse to punish a murderer not because of his crime but because of some biological consideration, e.g. he has red hair.

Bank robbers may tend to wear masks, but the crime they commit has nothing to do with the mask. In the same way, drunk drivers cause accidents but so do sober drivers, and many drunk drivers cause no accidents at all. The law should focus on violations of person and property, not scientific oddities like blood content.



As a Libertarian, I think I agree in part to what is being stated here.

Drivers convicted of driving drunk and causing accidents should face severe punishment and fines, but excessive tactics to convict do infringe on a person's right against unlawful search.

The blood alcohol limit is now so low that some can be convicted of driving drunk after only two or three beers.

I do not drink and drive, but I am wary of intrusive police tactics that stop people for no reason and then require a blood test.

We should do all we can to teach responsibility and the dangers of not staying focused while driving a car.

The school systems, I think, should do more of this.

Some people can be impaired after only 2 or 3 beers.

I'm a heavyweight and can drink a lot before I feel "drunk", but if I haven't had much to eat and down 3 beers in quick succession I guarantee that 0.08 or not, I'll be impaired for at least a short while.

There are so many factors to alcohol impairment, that makes the "only 2 or 3 beers" statement totally ridiculous.

What about texting while driving laws, are those a form of tyranny?

How about walking around with a gun while drunk? We cool with that?

Also, driving is not a right. You cannot demand a driver's license. It's an "earned" privilege - you have to prove you can drive and obey the rules of the road. Drunk driving laws are in that way no different than red lights and stop sign laws.
