    I think the death penalty is overused. Let them go to prison where they can get ass-raped for years rather than take a chance that God will have mercy on them.

    right..... they just threw out the death penalty for the sheer fun of it and not as a remedy for something they believed was a problem that needed a solution.

    Tell you what - if you accept that premise, I have the official 100% legal deed to the official Golden Gate Bridge that you can get pretty cheap.

    You tell all of us now and explain it like we are five year olds ---- why would anybody propose the death penalty connected with a public issue as anything but a solution to a problem?

    You may very well be correct that he is addressing the problem of voter fraud. But, as I said initially, the OP made NO statements as to the PREVELANCE OR EXENT of the problem.

    Which brings us to the question of what is more absurd - asking about the death penalty for voter fraud to cure that problem or simply proposing the death penalty for voter fraud when it is not a problem?

    That's rather expensive, though.

    I have no idea which is more absurd. My point is simply that your question from earlier in the thread is irrelevant:

    The op was not making any claim regarding the number of actual fraud convictions.

    I have made it clear that I disagree and the obvious implication of a problem was more than evident by the prescribed solution of the death penalty. Again, if the OP was not based on the presumption of a problem, why would anyone except the mentally deranged proposed the death penalty for a problem which they believe does NOT exist?

    Again, it may very well have been based upon the presumption of a problem, but no assertion was made regarding the prevalence or frequency of the problem. Therefore your question was irrelevant.

    It still seems that death is so overused now that it's lost its power. As evidenced by someone thinking that it's an appropriate penalty for voter fraud. Why not just have the death penalty for speeding? Have it for everything, and give the police the authority to execute you on the spot without a trial.

    As the OP's solution inherently presumes the existence of a problem which merits such a serious punishment, my question is 100% relevant.

    Otherwise, the OP is simply nonsense based on the idea that there is no problem but lets have the death penalty anways.

    If can only be one or the other.
