    Thank goodness for checkpoints the police do not get enough drunk drivers off the road. Checkpoints are only unconstitutional to those that break the law.

    You’re right. Next time you drive through one of those checkpoints, make sure you tell the cop how unconstitutional it is. Then, while you are sitting in jail, you can take a class and learn how to spell complex words like “for” and “sacrifice.”
