Jack Turduckhen, reporting live from Dubuque, Iowa. The McCain campaign has decided to "Let Sarah be Sarah", and she is here now with me. Sarah, you are very strong on crime and punishment. Alaska doesn't have a Death Penalty. What is your position on The Death Penalty?
If the legislature passed a death penalty law, I would sign it.
I support adequate funding for a strong public safety presence in Alaska. Feeling safe in our communities is something we cannot accept any compromise on. This includes policing in all its forms, the court system, prosecutors and corrections. If the legislature passed a death penalty law, I would sign it. We have a right to know that someone who rapes and murders a child or kills an innocent person in a drive by shooting will never be able to do that again.
You are opposed to abortion. You believe life begins at conception, and an abortion is the premeditated murder of an unborn child. The premeditated murder of any child is a heinous crime, and the murderer should get the Death Penalty, right?
I guess the only question that remains is "How will you execute women that have abortions?" Electric chair? Gas Chamber? Lethal injection? Public hanging with hordes of Christians chanting "Kill Baby, Kill!"?
