Why don't we ban alcoholic beverages instead of making it illegal to drive drunk?

    Agreed. After all, if we ever did a study, we would probably find that most drunks drive home safely.

    You need to get out of the house occasionally.

    You may find a different world beyond Mom's basement.

    You know what??? There isn't a black or white choice. We allow people to drink but expect them to fucking take a cab if they're doing so. Is that really so wrong???

    We allow people to have guns but we should have back ground checks on their sanity.

    And while there are more cars on the road than ever, drunk driving fatalities are down.

    Good point. We tried banning booze and it simply created a black market by way of neighboring countries and increase in violence to boot. Go ahead. Ban guns. Hollywood will keep up its gang bang gun culture in movies while those well motivated to acquire guns and inflict terrorism will do so in the black market. But, Liberals will have claimed victory because all of the lawful gun owners will be devoid of guns.

    Proves without a doubt that liberal policies work!

    Liberal policies normally do! Environment, health, etc.
