    Again, why are stricter DUI and DWI laws impossible? And if they aren't, then why do you think I would "never" support legalization since I gave attainable conditions under which I would support it? Do you take that lie back now?
    So you just added an impossible scenario to be cute?

    I'll support legalization when:
    1. Unicorns fly
    2. Dolphins lay eggs
    3. We enact stricter DUI laws.

    Have you ever seen any crime, I mean absolutely any crime decrease from prevalence to near non-existence?
    Reading it over, I wasn't being fair to you because you did say "it's not." Do you have evidence that enacting stricter laws will increase DUIs and DWIs?

    There are a lot of really f***ed up people out there, and a whole lot of them are alcoholics who are borderline sociopaths and will get into a car regardless of what the law is. When people are drunk they're not thinking about the consequences anyways. Enacting stricter laws such as lowering the legal limit would simply increase the number of DUI's.

    If being held legally and personally responsible for the death of another human being isn't enough to stop someone from drinking and driving, nothing will be.

    I don't see it as impossible as you do. I see it as attainable. /shrug

    But the point remains that my argument had two parts to it and thus, is not as impossible as you distorted it be. Now I have a question: since I still believe what I do and you have put words in my mouth and insulted me instead of giving me any different arguments to consider, what have you done to advance your position?

    I asked you for evidence, not a repetition of the argument. Do you have any? If I recall, you asked me for evidence as soon as I stated my position. Why the double standard?

    Considering most of my posts have been wasted trying to argue semantics with you or facts with Medusa, the latter of whom wouldn't know the difference between marijuana and a cat's scrotum, I guess I really have been wasting my time.

    So I'm required to prove my position, which was doubting your unproven position? I don't recall you citing any sources that enacting stricter DUI laws will decrease DUI's.

    Blame yourself. I was prepared for a substantial discussion. You would have gotten that had you presented counterarguments instead of putting words in my mouth.

    Pro-tip: Taking responsibility for your behavior makes you a better debater. Blaming other people for your decision to distort their arguments will not.

    So I'm required to prove my position, which was doubting your unproven position? I don't recall you citing any sources that enacting stricter DUI laws will decrease DUI's.
    So, you're not going to provide evidence and instead deflect? Why is that?

    Maybe you'll be one of the people who gets killed by a high driver when it gets "wrecked." LOLz, can't wait.

    Because the burden of proof lies on the person that makes a claim. Out of left field you made a claim that enacting stricter DUI laws will decrease DUI's. I'm not responsible for something you pull out of your a**.
