Reason.com reported on Ron Paul’s official statement of support regarding Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty. He stated,
“I believe that support for the death penalty is inconsistent with libertarianism and traditional conservatism. So I am pleased with Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty’s efforts to form a coalition of libertarians and conservatives to work to end capital punishment.”
In response to this great news, I told Reason.com that Dr. Paul is a
“significant political and thought leader” and explained that the organization is “ecstatic” to receive the doctor’s endorsement.
“This reiterates that we already know,” says Hyden. “From the grassroots to political leaders and conservatives to libertarians, there is a growing concern about the death penalty.”
The response from supporters from across the US has been overwhelmingly positive. Conservatives and Libertarians are ready to repeal the death penalty.
