Kohenari makes a good point about Ron Paul's failure to challenge Perry on the death penalty. I don't take the time to study every point of Paul's or Johnson's philosophy, just enough to know if I'm in general agreement on the basics, and I believe I am, with both. Probably wishful thinking, but I truly believe it's not too late to salvage the US as one nation if we get a true Constitutionalist into the White House next election, and either candidate fits the bill in my opinion. I'm sure I won't agree with either on everything. But the death penalty requires something on the order of block-level government to be reasonably certain of justice being served. In large cities, and especially in states, it's far too easy for a corrupt or incompetent system to convict an innocent.
