CONSERVATIVES CONCERNED ABOUT THE DEATH PENALTY TO BE AT CPAC ST. LOUIS
Conservative group to highlight the flaws in America’s death penalty
September 23, 2013 – Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, a national network of conservatives questioning the alignment of capital punishment with conservative principles, will be an exhibitor at CPAC St. Louis in the St. Charles Convention Center on September 28th.
“We are looking forward to building on the momentum of when we debuted at CPAC 2013 in National Harbor, MD,” said Marc Hyden, a national coordinator for Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty. “Many conservatives keep telling us they are questioning whether the expensive, error-prone, and endless death penalty system fits with their beliefs in limited government, basic justice, fiscal restraint, and a right to life.”
Conservatives Concerned About the Death has the support of such leading conservatives as Brent Bozell III of the Media Research Center, Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice, Dr. Ron Paul, former Congressman and GOP Presidential candidate, and Richard A. Viguerie, who is known as “The Funding Father” of the modern conservative movement.
“Conservatives have every reason to believe the death penalty system is no different from any politicized, costly, inefficient, bureaucratic, government-run operation, which we conservatives know are rife with injustice,” Viguerie said.
Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty will be located at booth 37 in the CPAC St. Louis exhibit area.
