Governor Ernest, after you were elected you immediatly nufflied the Death Penalty and so on. Did you even take a poll or ask the people of your Region what they think? Sounds like you arent a man of the people.
I acted to implement the existing laws of the States that comprise the Southeastern region, all ten of which use the death penalty. I did so in a manner that provided for court review of the unconstitutional provisions of The Death Penalty Abolition Act before undertaking any irrevocable acts. It would be presumptious in the extreme for me to assume that the people did not want particular laws enforced. Surely, as a former Justice, you would not want me to ignore the law. If the people of the Southeast wish to cease the usage of the death penalty there exists the initiative process by which they can do so Indeed, I have expressed my willingness to expidite the process in this case to the extent available to me under the Southeastern Constitution, in part to make it as clear as possible that my action here is not based upon my opinion of the death penalty.
