    Obama by a mile. The Obama administration has gone to extraordinary lengths to help ease the path back in to society for ex convicts.

    U.S. puts up $11.7 million to help ex-cons find jobs - Handling Hard Times : The Orange County Register

    The right has been fighting against it tooth and nail. It is one of those things that is just too complicated for Republicans to understand. They just think "ex con = bad, so no help" and they're done thinking on it. In reality, of course, ex cons that don't manage to find jobs and reintegrate reoffend.

    Excons are more likely to vote for dems so some GOP states try to strip them of voting rights. They should vote for whoever they think will be better for the economy.

    research the facts on each candidate, and vote for who you believe can best represent the nation as a whole.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I am of the opinion that ex-convicts shouldn't be allowed to vote to begin with, but I digress.

    Why should people lose their rights after they've repaid their debt?

    If a person is a murderer, [s]he'll be in prison and parole for life, and therefore never have the right to vote since they're debt can never be paid in full.

    The question here isn't people in prison. It's EX-Cons.

    Alright then. Child molesters shouldn't be allowed to vote because they should be executed.
