    we should check with the experts. The DNC is pushing for laws allowing excons to vote. Why? because the DNC believes most felons would vote den if they could and would. Stanford Law Professor and far lefty Pamela Karlan spoke at U of Cincinnati Law school within a couple years of the Bush win over Gore. She was trying to get felons the right to vote again and she noted that if Florida felons had been able to vote Gorebot would have won by thousands and thousands of votes BECAUSE FELONS STRONGLY identify with the Dem agenda

    Do you feel the same way about 2nd amendment rights too?
    "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"

    I've argued in favor of excons owning guns before.

    I do. ALL rights should be immediately and automatically restored upon completion of one's sentence. No waiting period. No application & approval process. Immediate and automatic.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Who should I vote for? The man then said, "after Obama legalized millions of illegal aliens, there is no chance of me getting any kind of a blue collar job." He then said, "republicans hate us. What should I do."

    I have to agree with him on Obama's decision to legalize the illegal aliens. Most exconvicts are blue collar workers. When released, what are they supposed to do for work?

    I am NOT defending any exconvicts. I do believe they are still Americans. I also know that some crimes are worse than others. Fact is, most will be getting out regardless of what you think or what their crimes were.

    Who should they vote for? Who would help them the most?

    Thanks for your vote and your time.

    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.

    Do you realize that if every single person that is incarcerated in this country was allowed to vote, it would like double the amount of people voting in the election?

    For the sake of clarity though, the Drug War was a republican/conservative baby.

    Dems piled on, but the only real discussion as to the wisdom of imprisoning non violent offenders under mandatory minimum sentences etc came from the left.

    So to some extent repubs were complicit in the actual incarceration of many in the first place.

    If FDR had not expanded the commerce clause, the federal government would have had to find some other unconstitutional way to stick its rather large nose in matters it was never intended to be allowed to act in
