    Montana Republican Senator Bashes DWI Laws

    You won't believe what he said:

    YouTube - Rep. Hale Defends Drunk Driving

    So DWI laws are bad for tavern and bar owners? Actually, they are not. If bar owners behave responsibly and stop serving drinks to drunks, they don't have a problem. To everybody else - Drink responsibly or go to jail. You are NOT allowed to put other peoples' lives at risk by going out on the road drunk. If you do, then you have made a bad choice, and I hope you get busted before you ruin the lives of others. If it was just your own life, I wouldn't give a damn, but it's not, and that's why we have laws against driving drunk.

    As someone who is serving probation for a DWI, I will be the very first to say that this lawmaker should be unelected as soon as possible. Not only is he irresponsible, but he is a menace. I support DWI laws, and if you value your own lives, you will support them too.

    My only issue with DWI laws is that they are sometimes abused and people are prosecuted for things like sleeping in the driver's seat of a car while intoxicated, even if it wasn't moving at the time. However, that's an issue with the people enforcing the laws, and not the actual laws themselves.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    That's not a state. France has the wine party. They surrendered to their alcohol addiction. LOL.

    DWI laws are over the top control by the state. Punishing people for potential outcomes is not right. If you want to punish them when they do kill someone you already have a law for that.

    I'm almost always serious unless I'm not.
