12. I don't like that "let's test elected officials, too" argument.

 

First off, it's already been held unconstitutional without probable cause.

Second, it seems to widen the net on drug testing, which I'm not fine with. Suspicionless mandatory drug testing is not "fine with me."

I will leave you with Sen. Fritz Hollings' response to his Republican challenger in a 1986 debate when the challenger demanded he take a drug test: "I'll take a drug test," Hollings responded, "if you'll take an IQ test."
