Ron Paul, member of the United States House of...

Bob Kincaid, “America’s only born and bred Southern liberal talk show host,” said the following on his December 29, 2011 Head On broadcast (starting at 46:48):

Just to go back to crazy old Ron Paul for a minute, Jim. I saw a story earlier today where — now they’ve scrubbed it from the Ron Paul website — but he was very proud to receive the endorsement of a fundamentalist preacher, who wants to, um, there’s no other way to say it, who wants to bring in capital punishment for anyone found to be gay. Ron Paul got his endorsement. That thinking is out there. And he says, well you know, it’ll take us a while to do it, but I believe we can; Gotta start somewhere.

Ron Paul has said since the 2008 campaign, he no longer supports the death penalty in federal cases, so that preacher wasted his endorsement if he expects a supporter in the White House.

If the preacher expects Ron Paul to extend the federal government into state issues, he needs to read my articleDr. Stan Monteith explains the limited role of the federal government that few Christian evangelicals seem to get.

As for the constitutionality of the death penalty, see my article, The death penalty is explicitly constitutional in the United States. Whether the death penalty is a potential penalty for certain federal crimes is separate from whether they will be sought in particular cases, and whether Ron Paul will use the constitutional authority of the President to grant clemency in such cases.

For more on Ron Paul, see my articles:
1) FreedomWorks front-man says he thinks Ron Paul’s role isn’t to win the 2012 presidential race
2) Ron Paul right on health care: it’s not a right and it’s not a privilege. It’s a good.
3) Will Ron Paul throw 9/11 Truth under the bus again, like he did in 2008?

On Thursday, November 5, 2009, I sent the following email to Bob Kincaid, host of “Head On with Bob Kincaid” on the Head On Radio Network (H.O.R.N.), and I thank him for addressing it, by reading it on the air that evening, starting at 16:00.

I became a listener in mid-2006, and listened regularly until early 2009. He did such a great job excoriating the Bush administration for their deliberate and repeated assaults on the Constitution, and informed me of things I wouldn’t have otherwise heard about, such as now Attorney-General Eric Holder’s representation of Chiquita International, on accusations of supporting a terrorist group, which they admitted to and paid a $25 million fine in 2007.

I was concerned that, in my view, the U.S. was headed down the same path that President Bush had taken it down, despite the window dressing looking very different. It’s not about Democrat or Republican. They are two wings of the same bird of prey. I hope that more people will see the evidence for this, as events continue to unfold under President Obama, who campaigned under the slogan of “change.”

Bob,

On yesterday’s show you blamed Republicans for killing any meaningful health care reform, but with the Democrats having a comfortable majority in the House, even excluding the so-called Blue Dogs, and a theoretical filibuster-proof Democratic caucus majority in the Senate, it’s clear who’s to blame for this failure — “Democrats.”

I agree with the meaning and tone of all the chastisements you’ve ever made about Harry Reid and Joe Lieberman. Lieberman never should have been allowed to continue caucusing with the Democrats once he endorsed McCain for president, and therefore the Democrats could never have been said to have a filibuster-proof majority in actuality until they had one without relying on him. But what about the other nine Democrats? One need look no further to cast blame than so-called Democrats.

After all, despite a bi-partisan committee majority supporting Dennis Kucinich’s single-payer option for states amendment, it was taken out by the (Democratic) House ‘leadership’ last Thursday, and that rightly had Dennis fuming.
