    The pattern holds..
    Of course, they could always respond with:

    Moralize, while doing meth and diddling children, vote for a Republican.

    Separate your clients from their money, and go to prison, vote for a Republican.

    Cry your eyes out and throw tantrums, when out of power, vote for a Republican.

    The pattern holds.
    Better yet, debating the issues instead would be great.

    Make homosexuality illegal, throw gays in prison, and they can't vote for Democrats when they get out.

    Make marijuana illegal, throw hippies in prison, and they can't vote for Democrats when they get out.

    Make unions illegal, throw laborers in prisons, and they can't vote for Democrats when they get out.

    The pattern holds.

    Yup and its no surprise this is from the most overturned court in US history either.

    I wouldn't trust the 9th circut with a potato gun let alone law.
    Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.

    Yeah, I'm sure the Aryan Brotherhood was all for Obama...

    For the record, IMO, this a bad decision. I hope the next court tosses it out.

    Incarcerated felons should not get to vote. They owe a debt to society and do not get the same privileges as other adults.

    Paroled felons are technically still repaying their debt and should not vote.

    If you've met all the conditions of your sentence and parole AND have started paying taxes for a number of years, you can reapply for voting status.
