I agree with the sentence.
Coming from a "liberal" state, I don't see many "righties" applauding Massachusetts.
Since accusations of "lefty" and "liberal" as something bad seems to be the rage these days on every other issue.
I'd prefer one set of rules on the death penalty---meaning the 10th amendment shouldn't be around here either .

I have never understood why the death penalty is considered a more just punishment than life in prison. Life in a supermax prison DOES suck. Death is just a dreamless sleep. No suffering, no regrets, no nothing. Just like before one is born...nothing.
People kill themselves to escape dispair. We often feel relief when a loved one suffering from a terminal and painful disease finally passes away, not because we want them gone, but because they are finally no longer suffering.
Euthanizing one's beloved pet when it is in incurable pain is considered a kindness by most people.
And now we are going to extend this same kindness to a killer rather than make him endure incarceration for the rest of his life.
I don't get it.
I just don't get it.
