DUI & Prohibition Laws are Killing Our Middle Class
September 15, 2009
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” – Abraham Lincoln
Our government has lost focus of their primary responsibility to serve the public’s best interest; to viciously pursue an unsustainable agenda for revenue and control through DUI /Prohibition law. Our corrupted policymakers have overtime passed legislation designed to progressively circumvent our constitution. Thus selling out the power over our free nation unto the dehumanizing “wealthy global elite” (i.e. the world’s wealthiest 5% that now control 90% of the global assets; such as the media, insurance, prison, and rehabilitation industries…as well as the non-government Department of Motor Vehicles). Some examples of the use of manipulation and fear to persuade us to give up our freedoms for “safety” are presented below:
[efoods]1. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) produces the data on alcohol-related traffic fatality statistics based on accident reports listing the presence of alcohol .01+ in the driver, passenger or bystander. Furthermore, they publicly admit that this data is often misrepresented. For example, the wealthy lobbying group MADD had claimed that 14,539 people where killed by drunk drivers in 2003 (this erroneously inflated statistic was the driving factor behind lowering the BAC limit to .08 from the previous national standard of .15), But those same statistics show that less than 13,000 of those accidents involved a driver with a BAC of .01 or more…with the majority of those accidents being the fault of a driver has whose BAC was above .15. So statistically speaking, there is a better chance of being struck by lightning while standing in the rain, than being killed on the road by a drunk driver. Or to put things into a different perspective, sober drivers are to blame in over 71% of fatal traffic accidents… Meanwhile, 1.5 million people had their lives devastated by a DUI arrest in 2003.
2. Section 163 of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) created incentive grants for states enacting and enforcing a qualifying .08 BAC illegal per se law…A total of $500 million has been authorized for this grant program.
3. There are also several troublesome national trends directly related to the growing injustice of DUI and Prohibition Laws. Such as social-economic ramifications of having a country that leads the world in the percentage of population incarcerated. And in spite of the FBI’s Unified Crime Report states that violent crime, property crime, and crime against person have been declining for over a decade…incarceration was the fastest growing industry last year. So basically, our government is spending billions of our tax dollars to send millions of non-criminal working class citizens to jail or into programs that time and statistics have shown to have no real positive impact whatsoever. If anything, these unconstitutional laws are a leading contributor to the destruction of our middle class families. As well as our overburdened welfare and criminal justice system.
