“A growing coalition of liberals, religious groups, and libertarian-minded conservatives overcame more traditional…Republicans” in Nebraska: and abolished the death penalty.
Here’s hoping that similar coalitions can form a new antiwar movement. Everything that Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty has to say about this barbaric practice can be said about our “wars”:
“It’s not pro-life because it risks innocent life. It’s not fiscally responsible because it costs millions…At the end of the day, it’s another big government program that’s really dangerous and expensive but doesn’t achieve any of its goals.”
