Why shouldn't felons be allowed to vote?,if they were convicted and served their sentence they already paid for their mistake.
Some people think that when a person makes a serious mistake they should have to keep paying for it for the rest of their lives,maybe you should
consider how easily one can become a felon,you really don't have to make a very bad mistake at all considering the seriousness of the
One of the most grave mistakes one can make,is to be poor abd be charged with a felony,whether the crime was committed or not,there will still be a
felony conviction if that person cannot afford adequate representation.
I am not a felon,but have been in a few binds in the past.One time my lawyer asked if I wanted to take it as far as a trial,I said "No, because the
majority of people are so ignorant,I don't feel comfortable putting my life,liberties and freedom in their hands",shortly after that I told her that
the only guarantee I was getting from her,was that she would take my money from me for representing me,and thats the only guarantee.
She promptly refused to represent me and kept my money.
I wouldn't trust anyone who believes there is anyone who possesses any type of real honor in the legal system, courts,government,military.
Nobody in this country really has any idea about honor or dishonor.
And that is why it is such a confounded,convoluted and chaotic mess.
Leave the felons alone,let em recover from,and maybe learn from their errors,and present their unique perspective in our country's development.
