Death Penalty ... for or Against?

Public opinion is sharply divided over the death penalty or capital punishment. According to critics death penalty is just like a legalized murder. It does not prevent crime. It is barbaric and reflects that we are going backward to more brutal time. While the supporters believe that it eliminates worst criminals from the society and is a step forward to safer society and greater justice.
Arguments For Death Penalty:
The death penalty is morally, ethically and constitutionally right. The society has a moral right and duty to take the lives of others who kills others.
The death penalty permanently eliminates criminal from the society and thus it acts as a deterrence to further crime as dead criminals cannot commit any further crime, either within the prison or after escaping from the prison.
The money which is spend on long term imprisonment of murderers, rapists etc can be spend for the old, the young and sick people.
The main argument for death penalty is that once executed the person will never kill another victim and thus is acts as a deterrent to crime and criminals.
Arguments Against Death Penalty:
Capital punishment opponents believe that death penalty is morally wrong. They believe that by legalizing executions the society puts itself on the same low moral level as those of criminals.
In too many cases it was found death penalty is unfairly applied and wrong and innocent people were executed. The jury decision is unfairly influenced by race and money. The people who are wealthy manipulate evidences in their favor and are less likely to get death penalty than poor.
Finally death penalty does not deter crime it actually increases crime and violence .Statistical data shows that crime rate is higher than in states without it.

Dissent is Patriotic

I don’t have to remind you that America was built on dissent.

Those wonderful dissenters who gathered in Philadelphia to forge the Declaration of Independence, were marked men, dead men, if captured by the British.

They were willing to pay the ultimate price to secure freedom, for themselves and for those who followed.

During wars, dissent is usually toned down, because unity is important. In a just cause, forbearing from discussing misgivings about the conflict can be useful, important to securing the greater good and ultimate peace, while denying encouragement to the enemy.

But once doubt reaches a certain threshold, once it becomes apparent that a government has been lying about its rationale for entering a war, or sustaining hostilities to perpetuate a ruse, then the time to dissent is upon us.

In the early 1960’s, The Gulf of Tonkin incident was used, and many say was carefully choreographed, to justify a huge deployment of troops to Vietnam. “We were attacked!” President Johnson told Congress and the American people, and “Our national security is at stake!” was asserted.

A similar ruse has been orchestrated by W’s administration.

Ask yourself this question: Why must we remain in Iraq until 2009, or beyond?

Is it because Bush said so?

Given his mendacity, who can trust him?

His purpose for waging war was wrong. His methods for conducting the war and for nation building have been wrong. And his timetable for withdrawal is wrong.

Let your voice be heard now, and loudly, as we move toward midterm elections.

Remember, dissent is patriotic!
