I agree with your line of reasoning here. I "also believe that if you abuse your rights you should lose them. But to be honest with you I don't believe that we will ever see it that way because the government has become to depended on the drug war for income. It creates a second class citizen as well for the low end paying job sector.<quoted text>
I think drug dealers are felons and I think felons should foreit all constitutional rights. If they can't obey the law, they should not be protected by it when they are caught.
Crime is a money making opportunity on both sides of the law. If the government was serious about the drug war then why not start fighting it by securing the borders and flattening the dope fields in Afghanistan?
The large government we have today needs a lot of money to support it and the 40 year old drug war helps do just that, so I ask you this. Why would they want it any other way?
