... social advance depends quite as much upon an increase in moral sensibility as it does upon a sense of duty ...

Jane Addams

To me, capital punishment is a form of societal self-defense. It should not be employed indiscriminately, but in cases of the most heinous crimes, the death penalty may be the only appropriate punishment. Some people believe it is right to take a life to save the life of someone else, but they would not vote to take the life of a convicted criminal, no matter how horrible the crime. Others believe that killing another person for any reason is simply wrong. I respect those opinions, but I disagree with them. I'm convinced that government has a duty to promote community defense. The death penalty, when applied in appropriate cases, can be a strong deterrent to crime. It is certainly a deterrent to the convicted criminal sentenced to death, and it is also a deterrent to other potential capital offenders.

John David Ashcroft

To do one's duty every day and trust in God for tomorrow.

Charles Baudelaire

... social advance depends quite as much upon an increase in moral sensibility as it does upon a sense of duty ...
