Though, to be clear, until Nuremberg 2.0 runs its full course, in the interim till a full phase out of the currently fraudulent judicial system, if I had my druthers, I'd fully reinstate the original punishment for the violation of the Coinage Act of 1792, to be SOLELY applied to former and present govt actors...

WASHINGTON, Nov. 10, 2013 — Historically, the “tough on crime” stance of Republicans and conservatives led to widespread support of the death penalty. But a new coalition aims to give a voice to those conservatives who feel otherwise.
Conservatives Concerned about the Death Penalty (CCATDP) debuted at CPAC in Maryland this year and has since gained considerable publicity. “It’s important to remember that we can be tough on crime, but we have to be smart on crime too,” says Marc Hyden, National Advocacy Coordinator for CCATDP.
Looking at Gallup’s “important issues” to voters in the 2012 election, the death penalty wasn’t even on the list. Yet the American public is slowly turning away from an expensive, morally questionable policy, and this trend is not lost on conservatives.

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. - Ron Paul

Ron Paul may technically be retired, but he remains as active and vocal as ever. The former 12-term Republican congressman is speaking out about the death penalty.
Today, the doctor formally endorsed Conservatives Concerned About the Death Penalty (CCATDP). The former presidential candidate had this to say about the organization:
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.
I spoke to Marc Hyden, CCATDP's National Advocacy Coordinator, who described Paul as a “significant political and thought leader” and explained that the organization is “ecstatic” to receive the doctor's endorsement.
