'Support for the death penalty is inconsistent with libertarianism and traditional conservatism'
Ron Paul is bucking the stereotype of what it means to be a Republican by coming out against the death penalty, Reason reports. The retired congressman has declared his support for the group Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty, a group critical of a system it claims is rife with "inefficiency, inequity, and inaccuracy," and at odds with conservative principles.
ps: i realize this is old info but, i guess since he's joining this group it's being presented as news.
