Me, back in November of 2006, concerning MADD's lobbying efforts to bring back prohibition with the aid of mandatory alcohol detection devices installed in every vehicle:
Collective "rights" and "protections" are prior to the rights of individuals. There is nothing obtrusive about forcing global warming contributors to blow into a tube before they are permitted to start their vehicle as we are each and everyone responsible to everyone. I can only imagine that these devices will always function perfectly and never malfunction because the State is always perfectly efficient and wise. This is a great advance for the socialist utopia envisioned by Karl Marx. I look forward to the day when motor vehicles will come equipped with a smog advisory device designed to prevent polluting vehicles from starting should the global warming risk prove higher than normal.The agenda that activists perceive as progressive just got more progressive should Nissan secure a government contract. Why should passengers get a free ride?

Failure to deter crime by imposing mandatory checks and balances will soon be a greater aggrievance than taking care of your own selfish destiny.
