OMG...classic praiseV8. Right and wrong is highly subjective...do you read what you type? If you don't know right from wrong...maybe the government should restrict your individual freedom.
Okay, sure bud, because I have a different opinion to what right and wrong is (see: subjective), I belong in jail. And people ask me why I don't want more government.
We can both agree that this man broke the law, multiple times.
We can both agree that he should be punished.
We can both agree that he should not have the same freedoms as everyone else, because of it.
We disagree on the fact that you think the government is both trustworthy and responsible enough to prevent this.
Laws and their consequences are what prevent this. Slowly limiting your freedoms until you're not allowed to leave your home without government supervision, is idiotic at best.
1) How does saying you don't give a rat's ass equate...no wait...I do care? Stop back pedaling and own up to what you originally wrote...your point was, you don't care about other people's lives...what is more important to you is your interpretation of individual freedom is not compromised.
I don't give a rat's ass about giving up freedoms because some idiot broke the law and did stupid shit.
2) How does throwing in alcohol tie into your point about preserving individual freedom? Government says you can't drink it while driving a car, if you do you go to jail. For people who do not know that is wrong, the government steps in and requires a breathalyzer (for a short period of time) to be installed in their vehicle and blow below a 0.08 otherwise the car won't start. Ah but your point is you want to have the freedom to do so if you choose and if you accidentally kill someone while doing it well hell at least your individual freedom was not compromised.
I know, this has been my point the entire time, you're preaching to the choir. Alcohol induced accidents are WAY more prevalent than high speed chases.
I want the freedom to be able to drink AND own a high performance car, so I can make the choice to stay home and drink responsibly, because I'm an adult.
3) WTH are you talking about...where in my posts did I defend alcohol or refuse to "give up drink" over individual freedom? I said alcohol (just like guns....and fast cars) doesn't cause problems by itself it is irresponsible people using alcohol that do. How did you interpret that as me not wanting to give up drink?
From your interpretation of "individual freedom" it sounds like you are against the government tracking and prohibiting where sex offenders live as it violates their individual freedom.
You get defensive about alcohol, even though it's a more prevalent problem than high speed chases.
Sex offenders broke the law. What law did I break when I bought my car that justifies giving the government my location and ability to disable my car?
I guess you already think I'm guilty of something if you want me in jail...
