  •  If you want weaker government like Perry does... (0+ / 0-)

    ...then obviously you should cheer for the idea that government can execute innocent citizens.

    No, wait, hear me out!

    See, our government is one that's of, by and for the people, right? Well, if the government is of the people, and you use arbitrary state executions to kill the people, then naturally there will be less people to empower the government, and the government will be weaker. QED.

    Therefore, every public employee should have a needle full of potassium chloride on hand, just to keep government from becoming tyrannical.

    Makes sense, right? You're welcome, America.
