Capital Punishment & UN Membership?

24-06-2004, 03:03
My nation has voted in the current resolution concerning Capital Punishment, but this thread is not a place to discuss our votes.

Instead I've noticed that people are using "real" facts about how many nations have Capital Punishment. This is fine. I always encourage the use of facts.

But there is no way anybody can do a survey of NationStates nations that have capital punishment. We all have likely had the national issue about Capital Punishment.

I'd like use to form an informal statistic concerning the number of nations that have Capital Punishment. Those of you in your debates on the resolution can then use and quote this poll.

Well so far, with only 3 nations replying that they don't have Capital Punishment, this goes a long way to illustrate that the political opinions of the nations in the forum do not match the distribution of nations voting!

The poll is in favour of the capital punishment atm as is the UN resolution vote.

Yeah, with a current tally of 11-13 (UN Members), I'd say the forum is now reflecting the vote. But what is more interesting is that non members that visit the forum are at: 1-3.

Whilst I voted against capital punishment in this poll since that reflects my beliefs, I did vote against the current proposal, but for an OOC reason.
