Do you support liberty
and justice for all?
An organized hate group has scheduled events in Michigan to raise money to
spend promoting hate crimes.
You can address these no-good punks at their own fund-raisers.
Many civil rights activists are quick to respond if an innocent person
is being maliciously mistreated because of his or her race, sex, religion or even sexual orientation. They
have some explaining to do if they are silent now.
The hate group calls itself Mothers Against Drunk Driving,
but they are not all mothers, and they are not against drunk driving. Their target is everybody born during
the past 21 years.
MADD pushes politicians to use gun-toting goons in bulletproof vests
to intimidate Mr. and Mrs. Twenty into total abstinence from alcoholic beverages, and to intimidate
businesses into refusing to sell alcoholic beverages to Mr. and Mrs. Twenty.
Of course, it is obvious why so many politicians, and Michigan voters, would rather commit
this hate crime against persons younger than 21, than impose tougher DWI measures which would apply to themselves.
That wouldnt be fair to the hypocrites, who can drive better drunk than
teenagers can sober.
It is not so obvious what motivates the hate-mongering MADD bigots,
so let me explain:
MADD is sponsored by auto makers, who want to perpetuate the intense
bureaucratic hostility against persons who dont buy cars. This hostility is manifested in numerous ways,
including traffic lights without crosswalk lights, streets without sidewalks, snow plowed onto sidewalks and
left there until it melts in the springtime, and zoning restrictions which prevent walkers from living closer to work.
City Hall requires parking lots for new apartment houses, to make walkers pay higher rents.
Pedestrians are lucky to get
white paint marking a crosswalk, while railroad crossings are equipped with clanging bells, flashing lights and
descending gates, because the persons who could get hurt are persons in cars, persons who matter. The carnage on
the roads was an excuse to raise the drinking age, and then the speed limits were also raised, because speed limits apply
to persons who matter.
The more a young adult drinks alcohol, the more he or she will avoid
driving. That person will do more walking and then demand equal rights for pedestrians.
A serious crackdown on drunk driving, making laws in the U.S.A. comparable
to those in other countries, would
mean more suspended licenses on any given day, and with more riders, bus companies could extend their hours and routes.
Then more young folks could find jobs
without buying cars. MADD wants to get these young persons addicted to driving. Our nations youth are
tomorrows leaders, and MADD wants them to show the same depraved indifference to the rights of pedestrians
that so many of todays politicians show. Most voters and politicians dont give a fire truck about the
rights of pedestrians, or the rights of persons born during the past 21 years.
Some MADD activists, having lost a family member, are desperately trying
to pretend their own past DWI crimes
are not their own fault, but the fault of a society that was soft on underage drinking. Some cannot even picture
somebody drinking alcohol and
then not driving, while others cannot live with the fact that, every day, many thousands of persons younger than
21 imbibe and then dont drive.
Its not that they are all morons. Its just that good, sound,
logical reasoning does not
support their cause, so they rely on bad reasoning: Statistical analysis of historical crash data
proves that the United States of America
ought not to be a free country, with liberty and justice for all, where the citizen decides what to drink,
be it water, wine or turpentine, and
where the drunk driver is the one who gets punished for drunk driving.
MADD will argue that too many young persons have been killed in DWI crashes,
which is true. Notice I didnt say accidents, because
so many crashes arent accidents at all. Well, consider the crash in Burton, Ohio on 2 March 2006. The guilty
driver was 47. He was driving drunk (0.26% BAC), driving
left of center, speeding, driving under suspension and leading a police chase, but at least
he wasnt drinking under age,
a victory for MADD. He crashed head on into a car with three outvoted discrimination victims, but at
wasnt buying for them, another victory for MADD. While he collected his
eleven prior DUIs, MADD pushed for
sting operations, keg registration laws, counterfeit-resistant IDs and harsher punishments for being younger
than 21. They dont care about drunk driving,
they just hate everybody younger than 21.
Grace Chamberlain and Andrew Hopkins were both 18, and they never got a chance
to drink alcohol legally. A 19-year-old man
in the back seat spent weeks in Metro Hospital, getting his face put back together with plates and screws.
Outraged and stunned, the victims parents, and fellow students
at Hiram College went to Columbus to lobby for a
crackdown. They got a tougher repeat offender law introduced, overwhelmingly passed and signed by the governor. Citizens
who want results dont need MADD.
While youre lobbying, dont forget all the other senseless crashes
where alcohol was not a factor.
Do resist the temptation to debate the enemies of liberty on their statistics.
Sure, they get to include Grace and Andy in their numbers
of persons age 15 through 20 killed in alcohol-related crashes. Sure, they have data that reflected lowering the
drinking age at a time when cops let drunk drivers go home and sleep
it off. Sure, if you saw a crash, you would have to note the mile marker and drive to the next exit as precious seconds
ticked away. Maybe theres a gas station with a pay telephone.
Too bad the gas station is closed, and the pay telephone is inside it. Nowadays, usually somebody is on line to a
9-1-1 operator within 60 seconds of impact. Sure, these days more of the fatal drunk driving crashes are
listed as hit-and-run crashes because tougher penalties get more drunk drivers to flee the scene, and theres no proof of
intoxication by the time they get arrested.
Insurance companies classify people. Its bad enough that a good driver,
such as a single man with a clean record, has to pay the same as a married woman with two moving violations. He has to pay
higher rates, for the ones who drive like jackasses. However, theres a world of difference between
insurance and liberty. For one thing, you can avoid insurance by doing without a car, but they still inflict the drinking age on you.
Can crime statistics justify a dusk-to-dawn curfew based on race? Or should each person be judged on his or her own decisions?
Liberty is not a gift from the government, doled out at the discretion of bureaucrats. Liberty is an unalienable right which no
government can justly infringe. Liberty can only be defined meaningfully as the freedom to do whatever does not violate anybodys rights. Any other definition is
meaningless because, under such other definitions, the government could simply manufacture documents reducing your rights. Unalienable rights, by definition, preempt
the Rule of Law whenever the two things conflict with each other. Drinking alcoholic beverages does not violate anybodys rights. Even when Prohibition was imposed by
the Eighteenth Amendment, orthodox libertarian extremists maintained that governments cannot acquire authority by manufacturing documents, regardless of what words are
Unalienable rights inhere in the individual. Each person is a distinct individual and a distinct transaction.
The only relevant statistics are the ones about that individual, not crimes committed by
other persons. Eliminate drunk driving, and there will be no teenagers killed in drunk driving crashes.
Suppose the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) strikes down the underage drinking statutes. What do you think State legislators would do?
If you said they would scramble to pass tougher measures against DUI, then you just admitted that they impose underage drinking laws instead of
passing tougher measures against DUI.
The hate-mongering MADD bigots can be found and addressed at their events on public property:
26 August 2017 in Rochester, Oakland County, Michigan CLICK
16 September 2017 in Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan CLICK
Tell the businesses sponsoring these events what you think of their promoting hate crimes against persons
younger than 21. If you are approached by somebody planning to participate in one of these events, asking for your donation, ask that person if he or she is aware that MADD hates everybody born during the past 21 years.
The drinking age is a
Dont promote hate crimes.
