Death Penalty Is a Violation of Due Process

I personally am opposed to a death penalty for the following political reasons.  First, the Declaration of Independence insures us of the rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Consequently, there can be no sentence of death removing the right to life until We the People can unequivocally remove any and ALL chances that an innocent man can be put to death, thus reneging on a man’s Declaration of Independence Due Process Right to his life.  Second, since the powers enjoyed by our governments come from us, the sovereign people of the Sovereign Union States, and since we the people do not have the power to take another human’s life, I find it exceedingly inoperative that any government concludes that it possesses the power to take a person’s life for any reason.  Any Court that puts a human being to death must be reminded that We the People are the source of the law and the notion that We the People can invent a power that We the People ourselves do not possess is a travesty of justice and a mockery of “Due Process.”    The only way the courts can condemn a man, innocent or otherwise, to death is by the misuse of a death penalty.  So the question that needs answering is where does the legislature believe it gets the power to institute the death penalty?  Certainly not from We the People, because We the People are void of any power to condemn a man to death.  Certainly not from the legislature because there is no entity ordained to take a life because there is no Sovereign entity possessing that power to ordain it to them.  There are several more honest and less expensive ways to solve heinous crimes besides death.  There is expatriation, exile, expulsion, and rehabilitation for the guilty party to name a few.  It would seem that the number of known innocent persons put to death would be enough to stir We the People to cause such lack of Due Process to be terminated.
