This is a response to a man named Glen who had received 3 DUIs over the course of 20 years. He asked if his 10+ years of driving suspension was too tough and I wanted to make this perfectly clear so we all know what we are dealing with regarding these alcohol unusually cruel mental punishments as well as physical restrictions:
It sounds like your life has been ruined as a result of MADD and the witch hunt in America. These people have nothing better to do with their time yet there are starving people wars all over the world. The statistics have all been manipulated and the damage from the actual laws is much worse than what they are trying to prevent. It is my opinion that the amount of time and stigma associated with your ~7 years and miscellaneous trauma inducing alcohol programs is equivilant to many years in jail. Subjecting mass amounts of population to these kinds of vindictive mob punishments does more damage to our culture and individual lives than the few casualties of actual drinking and driving. The stigma associated with it is also worse than the crime. A good person can suddenly become an outcast and you are now branded as having a drinking problem and the government forces you to go to religious worship (AA) meetings. This is a perversion of what God is supposed to be about as well forgiveness. We don't call everyone who has a child a nymphomaniac just like getting 2 DUIs could mean you only ever drank on 2 occasions. Everything about DUIs smells of a lynch mobbing witch hunt where everyone is at risk. The founder of MADD has a DUI. Anyone can get a DUI yet people like to believe that they are some how better than the victims of DUI laws. We need to repeal these draconian laws and concentrate on the real problem, that driving in general is very dangerous and if we had better public transportation and safer cars we would have less problems. We should not attack human nature and especially people who like to drink who are often times the people who have the courage to move society forward. We should focus rather on the infrastructure we have built which is unsafe for ordinary activity.
More people die of drowsy driving, but it would be silly to say that we all have sleeping problems. It is just easy for people to pick on alcohol especially for people who have no occasion to celebrate. Should we give in to those people and make the world less happy or should we just make cars safer OR option number 3 deal with it and stop seeking vengeance.
