Democracy LOL


Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe has granted voting rights to as many as 60,000 convicted felons just in time for them to register to vote, nearly five times more than previously reported and enough to win the state for his long-time friend, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. McAuliffe sought to allow all of Virginia’s estimated 200,000 felons to vote, but state courts said each individual felon’s circumstances must be weighed. To get around that, McAuliffe used a mechanical autopen to rapidly sign thousands of letters, as if he had personally reviewed them, even as his office was saying the total was 13,000. Now, The Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group has learned that McAuliffe — who managed Clinton’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential campaign — churned out five times as many letters before the registration deadline than publicly claimed.


The rule of law is over.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law

What has happened to the America i grew up in?
The whole power structure seems to be bent on destroying the USA from the inside out.

Rule of law isn't over- it's just getting started for you and I. We will be ruled by law, and they will control the law from above.

If this weren't so pathetic it'd be hilarious.


I wonder if this clowns name is showing up in the podesta emails at all- I bet he's doing this for clinton to try and get his name on the list of criminals that go to prison when wikileaks finishes their game with her.

Crooked wanker.

Does not mean they are voting for her. She is the one that pushed for strict laws to lock people up for minor offenses. A felon would support Trump IMO. The system in place now probably locked them up for something trivial. It could totally backfire.

The Democratic governor’s decision particularly affects black residents of Virginia: 1 in 4 African Americans in the state has been permanently banned from voting because of laws restricting the rights of those with convictions.


mmmhhmmmm......

Just the headline alone causes one to question it's validity. 60,000 convicted felons? All at once? Man oh man.

So anyway I jumped in here to see just what the OPs take was, was it doubt at the in credulousness of the headline, or would the OP pick up the mantle and run with it. Well, now I know.

Individuals convicted of a felony are ineligible to vote while incarcerated, on parole, or on probation. Voting rights are automatically restored two years after the completion of all supervised release (except if convicted of treason). Ex-offenders should re-register to vote.

Wait a second, how is he bad when, as far as I know, the constitution doesn't forbid people from voting if they've committed a crime??

In Virginia, non-violent felons are granted the priveledge to vote only after they have completed parole.

Here's a list of state voting laws in regards to those convicted of a felony.

Cann cannn cannnn youuuuu uuuuu hearrrrrrr meeeeeeeeee? Just for fun I went to google and looked for who is pushing this. Only in the last few hours and it has been picked up by conservative sounding website after website. The echo-chamber is reverberating with it. Go see for yourself. And when you are done, check out this thread posted earlier on ATS about phony websites.

Why shouldn't felons be allowed to vote?

I can scarcely believe what I see and hear at this point. This country...this reality, has become a sick joke.

You would do well to question what you see and hear. As you can read above, this thread is built on a faulty premise. None of these newly released felons (assuming that part is true) have the ability to cast a vote until their parole has been completed.

I looked for a legitimate source as well, but haven't found one yet.

You obviously have never been a victim of a serious crime. Imagine being beaten half to death by someone over $4 in your wallet. They also have someone hold you down and piss in your face then steal your car. So you are saying this person should be allowed to vote?

Go be a victim and comeback to the conversation.

The scariest thing is, in quite a number of apocalyptic films, there is a female POTUS at the centre of the plot.
