So, counties with large prison populations will have their laws and politicians chosen for them by the incarcerated?

I cannot believe I ever supported this #hole or any Dem for that matter.


EW! I can't either. At least you grew up.

Of course, because Bernie knows that felons and terrorists are more likely to vote democrat.


I love how they think we can't see through the BS.

Illegals should be able to vote!
Felons should be able to vote!

Clown World is here.

Why would anyone ever want to give a felon the right to vote!?

How ridiculous. People deemed felons by the state are obviously deemed that for a reason.

I highly doubt that. There’s a reason you have to disclose if you’re a felon on job applications. Most of them aren’t worth the risk you know...

I haven't seen one of these Democratic candidates that isn't touting some whacked out Leftist idea. These people are so disconnected from mainstream America that they are going to get Trump elected for four more years. If any of these people were just moderate and used their common sense they could easily defeat Trump, but it won't happen.

What a world we live in when people think narrow, unenlightened self-interest and selective empathy are traits of virtue.

The man is a manipulator and deceiver of the highest order. In doesn't take more than 5 minutes and a small dose intellectual curiosity to dismantle the majority of his claims. Don't make the error in judgment that just because a fool can point to the sky and say that it is raining that they should be put in charge with building a structure to bring us all in from the rain.

Sure, let felons vote on the laws they will ignore. Makes perfect sense.

People generally become felons because they showed a distinct lack of respect for or understanding of the concept of those same rights.

Agreed.


So why allow them to vote on laws or for politicians whose jobs very often involved tinkering with other people's rights?

Because they served their time. We don't punish people for the rest of their lives unless we believe they are beyond redemption. In that case, we either keep them in prison for the rest of their lives, or execute them. Is that what you are advocating? If you've committed a felony of any kind, no matter the circumstances, we're done with you. We're only sentencing you to ten years, but we're going to punish you for the rest of your life. No second chance for you.
If I didn't know better, I would accuse you of not believing in the concepts of redemption and/or forgiveness.

He *bernie* is talking about felons who are currently incarcerated and felons who literally will never see the outside of the prison yard.

He is not talking about former felons who have done their time and become law abiding members of society.

Is that really something you needed explained to you or are you just doing that Lefty thing you do where you LIE to make an outrageously stupid idea sound less stupid?

If you had read my first post, and then HER post, you would understand my answer. Maybe you should improve your reading comprehension skills before intervening for someone who is well capable of defending HERself.

Also, I will not stoop to returning your unnecessary and uncooth ad hominem insults in kind.

I was referring to BERNIE and how HE wants to give felons the right to vote. Get over yourself.

Then why did you quote my response to Ketsuko, if that wasn't what you were referring to?

Just curious.

How would a potential political candidate pander to the in-prison vote?

Would drug cartels become super-PAC's?

Would a politician claim to make rape and murder legal just to get votes?

The entire thread is about what Bernie said, is it not? And your response to Ketsuko was misinterpreting (to put it kindly) what Bernie said.

I knew you would get confused.

So, to clarify. Do you think Bernie wants to give FORMER felons who have served their time and are now productive, law abiding members of society the right to vote OR is he contemplating giving current felons serving time in federal prison the right to vote?

There is a difference, I hope I don't need to explain that to you. And don't confuse the two like you are apt to try and do.

Bernie's talking about letting them vote from jail though. That would indicate the ones he's talking about have not served their time.
