The Oakland Police department [send

that it will stop random checks intended to halt driving
under the influence. It turns out that many of the
people they stop are Mexican illegals, driving without a

Ignacio De La Fuente complained that the checkpoints
were making life miserable for illegal immigrants who
aren`t licensed to drive but otherwise obey the law."

DUI Checkpoints Halted to Help Illegals

Most readers know what happens when the police catch
an ordinary American driving without a license. The
police tow his car, because they won`t let him drive it
illegally, and they give him a summons.

Apparently, doing this to
illegal Mexicans is unfair.

De La Fuente`s point would seem to be that the
Mexicans who are having their cars towed aren`t drunks
or speeders who`ve had their licenses suspended, but
merely illegal aliens who would get driver`s licenses if
it weren`t for that

nasty Terminator.


Mexican illegals
are more likely to


. And the stakes here are pretty high.

Recently, the same Terminator who won`t sign a
driver`s license bill for the illegals, did sign

two bills
designed to deal more harshly with DUIs.

Legislation that was supported by  Bob and Carmen
Pack,  whose two children,

Troy and Alana,
were killed by a

driver with multiple convictions for
driving under the influence.

Charged with murder, gross vehicular manslaughter
while intoxicated, driving under the influence causing
bodily injury, felony hit and run, driving on a
suspended license and possession of cocaine, is

Tocqueville On The National Question

– 09/27/04

One of our perceptive supporters has called our
attention to these passages, from

Alexis de Tocqueville`s
Democracy in America.

(The translations vary, of course, De Tocqueville`s
book was originally published in the French language as

De la démocratie en Amérique.
 These quotations
are from the edition

translated by George Lawrence and edited by J-P. Mayer.

It is still in

.  Honesty is the best policy, but
you can read the whole of

book 1, chapter 8

"The Constitution of the United States is like one of
those beautiful creations of human diligence which give
their inventors glory and riches but remains sterile in
other hands.

"Contemporary Mexico has

shown that.

"The Mexicans, wishing to establish a federal system,
took the

federal Constitution of their Anglo-American neighbors
as a model and copied it almost completely. But when
they borrowed the letter of the law, they could not at
the same time transfer the spirit that gave it life. As
a result, one sees them constantly entangled in the
mechanism of their double government. The sovereignty of
the states and that of the union, going beyond the
spheres assigned to them by the constitution, trespass
continually on each other`s territory. In fact, at
present Mexico is constantly shifting from anarchy to
military despotism and back from military despotism to
anarchy." [Page

And also this

"How, then, does it come about that the American Union,
protected though it be by the comparative perfection of
its laws, does not dissolve in the midst of a great war?
The reason is that it has no great wars to fear.

"Placed in the middle of a huge continent with limitless
room for the expansion of human endeavor, the Union is
almost as isolated from the world as if it were
surrounded on all sides by the ocean.

"The population of Canada is no more than a million and
is divided into

two hostile nations
. The rigors of the climate limit
the expansion of its territory and shut its ports for
six months of the year.

"From Canada to the Gulf of Mexico there are only some
half-destroyed savage tribes, which six thousand
soldiers drive before them.

"To the south, at one point the Union touches the
Mexican Empire; it is there that one day great wars will
probably come. But for a long time to come the backward
state of civilization, corruption of mores, and
poverty will prevent Mexico from taking high rank among
the nations." [Page

Mexico doesn`t seem to
have changed, except that a lot of it (and its

here. But the U.S.
now has much less margin for Error.
