    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.
    my take exactly.

    The pattern holds.
    Make homosexuality illegal, and there goes about half of the Republican base.

    50% of the Republican base and 90% of the Democrat base...wouldn't that make the majority of people homosexual?

    I thought it was the left circuit or the left jerk it court of appeals.I think only those retards would say it is okay for inmates to vote. I bet those would be same people saying former inmates couldn't own firearms.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    IIRC, there are ~50 million registered republicans, so 25 million.

    there are ~70 million registered democrats, so 63 million.

    Total of 88 million gays in the country, just counting those who are registered to one of the major parties.
