If Smaller Government Floats the Boat...
by Tom Bozzo
In the spirit of giving credit where due, Joe Malchow comments on today's Supreme Court decision barring capital punishment for juvenile criminals at Dartblog:
My argument has always been that no government ought to have the right to kill its citizens- except in war- but I suspect this ruling was based more on cruel and unusual punishment. Still, that seems to allow room for a broader cessation of capital punishment, which I think small-government Republicans should support.I'd just add that it's an aspect of smaller goverment that merits bipartisan support.
