EDITOR: Wednesday's letter to the editor of the Johnson City Press (June 
11, Rights Violated for Politics) is right on target.

Anyone who would wage a war against Americans ought to be shown that they 
underestimate the enemy.

The truth is becoming increasingly clear to the public: Prohibition is 
unconstitutional, increases crime and creates wealth for criminals on both 
sides of the law.

Kudos to the mainstream media for finally exposing the treasonous fraud 
known as "War on Drugs."

If your boss tells you to lie, the right thing to do is tell him no or 
quit. And if you are a prosecutor, please note that those who increase 
crime are criminals, and go do your job.

Granted, it risks your pension to put drug warriors in jail. But it would 
send a message to kids that not all government employees are profiteering
