If that is repealed the murder rate of Baltimore City will spread throughout the rest of the state.

In Texas we have the Death Penalty and we USE it.
Other states are trying to abolish the death penalty, our state is putting in an express lane!

Isn’t it amazing abortions have been made universal, while states still vote on their own for killing criminals?

I have lived here all my life. My Family has been here for since the Ark and the Dove.I am related to the Carroll’s of Carrollton. My family is here, my kids,and yet I am ashamed of what has happened to this state under the political leadership of the Democrat party.
Just this past year: Same Sex Marriage,Repeal of the Death penalty, Gun Bills everywhere, legalised gambling, taxes up to the ying-yang, Casa De Maryland.
It is getting about time to think of moving on.
