Stacy Summary: The average death penalty case costs Texans $2.3 million, the same as 40 years in a single maximum security cell. The cost is the same for even the innocent people Perry has put to death. But as you see, Rick Perry’s base wants to redistribute your wealth for their own murderous ends and claim, in the process, to be delivering small government. There is no bigger act of big government, however, than the act of executing your a**. I’d rather they tax me 99% than execute me so that some evangelical could get their rocks off.
For those looking for help in justifying executing innocent people so that Rick Perry might be re-elected by a ecstatic population.
