Via Sullivan comes this very interesting map:
I would be happy to see us become a green colored nation, but wouldn’t mind becoming blue either. Of course we need more than an abolishment of the death penalty; we also need an entire overhaul of our justice system. When it comes to per populace incarceration rates, we beat everyone. This country has outlawed too many things and that weakens us as a nation. Hopefully we will see a leader someday ready to really address that.
