conservatives oppose death penalty

Conservatives Lead Nebraska Death Penalty Repeal, Will Other States Follow?

Principled limited government constitutional conservative Nebraska state Senator Brett Lindstrom asked the questions we all should ask ourselves about the death penalty: Isn’t a state killing a citizen the ultimate big-government act? Does being truly conservative mean you have to support the death penalty? Or does fighting against big government mean you can take a stand against government-mandated executions? Brett Lindstrom ultimately found his answer and voted to override the Governor’s veto and end the death penalty in Nebraska.
